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.

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

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.

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

Holder-Murray is a wonderful and very caring surgeon/doctor. She takes the time to answer every question I have every time I see her. She is definitely an asset to UPMC. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the same situation as me.

Dr. Holder-Murray is one of the best physicians I've ever dealt with. she explains everything in detail and with drawings. She is kind and understanding. I feel very comfortable talking with her about any concerns and she always takes the time to listen. She has helped me figure out something that other doctors misdiagnosed for the past 10 years. It's so nice to find a doctor that knows what is happening and how to fix it. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a GI surgeon.
