Dr. Steven J. Morris, managing partner of Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates, was selected as “Premier Physician of the Year” by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Georgia Chapter. He was honored at the organization’s annual Torch Gala on February 3, 2018 at the InterContinental in Buckhead. Proceeds from the event supported critical research to better diagnose, and ultimately cure, inflammatory bowel disease which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
“This is personal because I have spent almost four decades taking care of patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease,” said Morris. “It is rewarding to be recognized for something that is often humbling, challenging and a privilege to do on a daily basis.”
Dr. Morris is a clinical associate professor with the Emory University School of Medicine. He is past president of the Georgia Gastrointestinal Society and previously served as chief of staff at Emory University Hospital Midtown Hospital. He has been with Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates for 40 years.
