in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Murphy is a wonderful, caring and highly experienced surgeon. She performed my mom's cataract surgery. Dr. Murphy explained everything very well, always taking her time and is skilled. The surgery was flawless and the after care was outstanding. She can see very well, better than ever even. I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy to anyone who wants premium care, courteous and kind staff and a doctor who cares. She has a hometown feel of a single practitioner, not a factory. We feel blessed.
