Dr. Holder Murray and her staff are always professional and caring.

Dr. Holder Murray is wonderful; knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. I drove 4 hours for my appointment with her and will be returning. I have confidence in her decisions.

excellent care

March 27, 2017

I was very apprehensive about having this type of surgery.Dr.Holder-Murrey put me at ease right away. I could tell she had the knowledge & ability to help me.she explained the two types of surgery & which one was the best for my problem.

March 20, 2017

Very prompt response to post-procedure inquiries.

March 13, 2017

My provider was kind and treated me well, but the surgical procedure did not fully fix the problem, and it was only after the fact that she revealed she did not perform the type of surgery that could fix the problem, and i would have to see another surgeon at Cleveland clinic to address the remaining issue. i am extremely frustrated, upset, and depressed that i went through this entire surgery, took off work for weeks and went through recovery to not have the issue fully resolved. I wish my provider had been honest with me, or took the time from the start to realize that the procedure she was recommending would not address the entire problem.

February 27, 2017

Very informative and nice. Did not feel anxious talking to the care provider about my health issues. Waited in the exam room for a little longer than expected, but I was informed by several nurses that things were running behind, so it wasn't a big deal at all. Very pleasant experience overall.

February 27, 2017

I was given great care, but I disagree about not being given pain meds.

February 20, 2017

Dr. Holder-Murray is an excellent physician, knows her specialty extremely well, and is a warm and friendly person. I would recommend her to anyone.

January 23, 2017

Excellent staff and provider. Always go above and beyond, which is hard to find these days.
