We love Dr. Murphy and his interest in our health.

May 04, 2018

I've had a long-term relationship with Dr Murphy. He is an Outstanding PCP, either dealing with my medical concerns, or referring me to a specialist as appropriate and he is always "spot-on" in either circumstance. He also talks to me about other important items contributing to my overall health, e.g., work/life balance, keeping active, etc. As I said Dr Murphy is an Outstanding PCP!

This was a follow up for surgery I had recently. He was not really aware of the issue(s) I was having. I filled him in though.

Dr. Murphy knows my needs. He is very knowledgeable of my health. The staff is very patient and nice.

I have been very pleased with my care with Dr. Murphy.

April 17, 2018

It almost seemed like the doctor was rushed. The last few times I've been there It's been like that.

Always have had good experiences with my care provider.

gives good advice for better at home care and is concerned with my health needs

Dr. Murphy is a very nice guy and interacts with our children very well. However, I don't feel like he is very knowledgeable. It's like he checks a couple boxes off a list when we see him but never goes beyond that. He is a very nice guy though. The other concern I have with our family doctor is that we can't ever get into the office when we are sick. We're always just told- go to urgent care. We honestly feel like the doctors at urgent care are more our doctors than Dr. Murphy is. We are most likely going to be going to a different practice. The only reason we haven't yet is because our daughter gets excited to see him because again...he's a nice guy.

I am very pleased with the care Dr Murphy has provided me over the years. He is compassionate, easy to talk with, and knowledgeable.
