Great Doctor that cares about his patients
He's trying to get my insurance to pay for a prescription himself.

If your looking for a doctor to coddle you you have come to the wrong guy. But if you want straight forward answers to your questions and a good solid doctor that knows more about stimulators and implantable pain pumps then he is the greatest. Trust me I’ve had 10 back surgeries over the years including 5 spinal fusions I’ve seen doctors around the country and he is as carrying and capable as any I’ve ever been to. I have no clue if he is the best surgeon has done 3 solid surgeries for me and everything worked out pretty good but it’s his bed side manner that he shines he won’t spend time with you unless you’ve asked and then he is straight out with it. Appointments are easy to get his staff are all great have never had the slightest complaint. Anyway not sure where the negative reviews come from I’m guess they want what can’t be provided he is for sure thr first doctor of choice for me in pain and I drive across the state to get there for 7 years now.

I was referred to Dr Murrillo from my Neuro for a lumbar epidural. He is an absolutely amazing, kind gentleman. Not to mention an amazing Dr. He truly cares about his patients. He is Extremely knowledgeable in his field of Pain Management. He spends Ample time making sure you are comfortable and he made sure that I” understood the procedure step by step. His staff is also very attentive and kind. Georgie is top notch! Every time I call she makes sure that I get all the answers to my questions , not to mention - friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend Dr Murrillo to anyone who is suffering with chronic Nerve pain- and or back pain. I drive 2 hours to see Dr Murrillo and his staff. He is an expert in his field. I know I can rely on him. Most importantly I trust him.

He does not listen to the needs of the patient also his staff is beyond rude makes you bring your own records then when you want them back he wants to charge you for them seemed to me that all he want to do is string you a long so he can bill your insurance company in my opinion he is very shifty DO NOT GO TO THIS DR. unless you enjoy horrible experience I would leave minus stars if the option was available he prescribed me steroids that put parts of body that were not in pain to extreme pain so if you want to be in more pain by all means make an appointment guy is a joke

All he does is give the advice of sending patches. He doesn't listen very well when patient is explaining about problems they are having with the patches In the past. He must have a deal with the fentanyl patches and that's all he wants to prescribe. He is not a doctor that will listen to his patients. I don't recommend him at all for anyone that is going through a severe battle of pain. I'm very disappointed of the way he treats patients. He doesn't deserve not even one star. Smh!
