OMC’s R. Gideon Morrison, M.D. chosen as a 2018 Top Doctor by
WEST PLAINS, Mo – R. Gideon Morrison, M.D., Board Certified Pathologist,
at Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Pathology has been selected as one of
417 Magazine’s annual Top Doctors for 2018. Recipient physicians are selected
by their peers in the local medical community who vote for them in the
417 Magazine Top Doctors survey.
“This list is a service to our readers, giving them a doctor’s
perspective regarding the top doctors in dozens of specialty areas,” states
417 Magazine. “It also gives healthcare seekers a place to see doctors highlighted
for achievement and reputation, and can be a great tool for finding the
right doctors for their needs.” Since 1998,
417 Magazine has been the life-enrichment magazine of southwest Missouri.
As a Pathologist, Dr. Morrison specializes in the general study of disease
and its processes as well as the specific diagnosis of disease, since
pathologists investigate the clues to diseases and injuries through the
examination of organs, tissues, body fluids, cells, and molecules.
A pathologist will also examine a tissue biopsy to determine whether it
is benign or malignant, and shares that information with your primary
care doctor. Pathologists also perform autopsies, which not only determine
the person’s cause of death, but may also discover more information
about the genetic progression of a disease.
Dr. Morrison received his medical degree from the University of Missouri.
He completed his internship and residency at University of Missouri, also.
Dr. Morrison is board certified by the College of American Pathology in
anatomic and clinical pathology. Dr. Morrison practices at OMC Pathology
located at 1100 Kentucky Avenue, West Plains.
