Review of Dr. Murray

- in Wayne, PA |

I had put off getting a spinal fusion for so long because of the pain and long recovery that I saw with people that had these surgeries. I eventually decided to have a minimally invasive spine fusion at L4-L5 and went home the very next day. The nerve pain in my legs was gone and I only had what I would describe as ‘soreness’ where the incision was. I was doing so well, people couldn’t believe that I had a spine fusion. If someone needs a spine fusion, I hope that they see Dr. Murray!

Review of Dr. Murray

-Exton PA |

Dr. Murray is an extraordinarily skilled spinal surgeon as well as a truly lovely person. After an unsuccessful back surgery 1 1/2 years ago that resulted in continued back pain and a new pain in my leg, I was lucky to find Dr. Murray. Now, 7 weeks after Dr. Murray's surgery, my back pain is so much better and my leg pain is gone! We are blessed here in Chester County to have such a top notch spine surgeon available. His caring attitude and terrific bedside manner are just icing on the cake!

Review of Dr. Murray

-Philadelphia, PA |

Dr. Murray is the best in the Philadelphia area. I saw a number of surgeons and no one else has his experience with minimally invasive spine surgery. He did a minimally invasive spinal fusion at L5-S1 and I was back to work in 3 weeks. A friend that had a traditional spine fusion wasn't back until 3 months after surgery. I don't know why someone would go anywhere else.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in North East, MD |

I was sent to Dr. Murray for surgery to replace a cervical disc. Dr. Murray is very easy to talk to, and took as much time as needed to answer all of my questions and to make it very clear what I could expect with the surgery and the recovery. On the day of the surgery Dr. Murray came to see me in pre-op to make sure I was comfortable and that all my questions had been answered. He again saw me after the surgery to let me know everything went well. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Murray

-Wilmington, DE |

I was very pleased by Dr. Murray's attention to my questions and the clarity with which he answered them. He discussed surgical and other options with me intelligently, including risks and expected outcomes. He seemed very willing to spend as much time with me as was needed to discuss all of my concerns.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Hockessin, DE |

Dr. Murray is easy to talk to. He listens to you and does not make you feel rushed. I feel confident and on the same page with him after our first meeting and that has continued throughout our history. His follow up post surgery was the best and I would include his staff with that statement also. After discharging me from the hospital a few days after my surgery I had to return to the hospital with issues not related to my surgery. Dr. Murray continued to check in on me every day. Thank You Dr.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Newark, DE |

Dr. Murray has a friendly open manner and is a great communicator - he listens carefully and explains things well. My lumbar fusion was a success and very easy to recover from. Follow up was great - he is easy to contact and called me twice in addition to the post-op in-hospital visit. I have already recommended him to a friend who had a fusion two years ago and now needs more work.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Glen Mills, PA |

Before having spine surgery I did my homework... I got an opinion from another surgeon in Delaware and also went to the Rothman Institute. Dr. Murray exceeded my expectations and stood out, head and shoulders above the other doctors both as a surgeon and in his ability to connect with his patients.

Review of Dr. Murray

- in Bear, Delaware |

Dr. Murray was wonderful and very professional. he was very compassionate and spent a great deal of time answering all of my questions and concerns. He and his staff were quick to call me back when I had questions. I felt great immediately after surgery. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. The surgery was a great success and I have not felt pain free in many years.
