Dr. Murphy explained everything to me regarding an tummy tuck and a pannilectomy. The differences between the two and the expected outcomes of both. I felt very comfortable and confident and meeting with her.

This appointment was no help to me. I know this might have not been the right place for me to go for my issue, but as a Doctor I believe she should have encouraged me to go to a wound care clinic. It was a waste of money because all that was done during the appointment was clean my burn and give me Neosporin.
