Folks always treat me as family, make me feel they care about my concerns and are highly effective in providing care and information.

Shaun T.

Dr. Ladd has been my primary physician for more than 20 years.  No matter how busy he is, I have his full attention during my visit. He listens to my concerns in regard to medications, and health.  I am a octogenarian, and I am doing rather well under Dr. Ladd’s care.

Anne G.

Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Very prompt when you call or go in to the office. I came to this practice looking for a “Dr.” who would listen to me and truly cared what he could do for me. I am so pleased with MY DOCTOR, DR. ALAN MORGAN! I had hurt with an old shoulder surgery for 5 yrs. I DID NOT NEEDS ANY PILLS. I needed help. He sent me to a specialist at Wake Forest, where I learned I had a shoulder replacement that was TOO BIG for me and I had a STAPH INFECTION THAT HAD BEEN WITH ME SINCE THE FIRST SURGERY IN 2012! I can give him a very high recommendation! Thank You for accepting me as your patient! You are my God send, Dr. Morgan! Don’t hurt and NO PAIN PILLS!

JB
