I can't give enough praise to Dr. Holder-Murray. She always makes me feel comfortable and takes time to explain what she's doing. I honestly feel like she truly personally cares how I am doing and if these surgeries are working or not. I have been dealing with health issues like this for 23 years, and I've never had a doctor I connect to like I do with her. I walk out of her office confident in the plan of care and assured it's the best course of action. I also really appreciate Jillian, her nurse. She ALWAYS gets back to me ASAP and answers all my questions. They make a great team.

Dr. Murray was running late, but that is understandable whenever a physician has scheduled a whole day of patient visits. You cannot predict accurately what patient problems might occur. She advised me that this might be the last time I would see her since my Highmark Security Blue coverage won't be recognized by UPMC after 2018. She suggested I make an appt with Dr. Barry for a sigmoid check for cancer late next year.

Dr. Holder-Murray was great. She explained the situation very clearly. She took care of the problem quickly and professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

December 11, 2017

Dr. Holder-Murray was excellent at explaining everything and telling me exactly what she was going to do step-by-step. I highly recommend her and actually I did recommend her to my sister that is also having some health problems. Staff were all nice and willing to listen to anything that I had to say. I highly recommend this office!

December 04, 2017

Dr. Holder-Murray and her nurse Jillian exceeded my expectation. Both well very kind and understanding. I read a lot of reviews before selecting a doctor and this office by far lived up to there positive reviews.

October 23, 2017

Had good visits.

October 16, 2017

I had to have emergency surgery and Dr Holder Murray was my surgeon. I received the best care from this group . I would highly recommend them.

September 25, 2017

my doctor is always very positive and polite and can help me to see the positive in a bad situation.

September 18, 2017

She was a bit condescending and made me feel like there were right/wrong answers to her questions, put me on defense. She was unapologetic for her lateness. I waited for 1 hour before she came in (although I did see two nurses briefly before her).

love Dr Holder Murray! I have been seeing her for years and trust her completely. she is always accommodating and compassionate.
