He’s an exceptional physician w/ above standard knowledge & experience (even when it comes to major/complicated medical conditions). He’s easy to talk to, he listens, & he treats your condition(s) efficiently w/out pushing unnecessary or unwanted surgeries on you. He runs a tight & professional ship while also maintaining a calm & relaxed environment for the patient. The nurses & staff are so very friendly & helpful too. I highly recommend him & his office.

A very open minded and comforting doctor, spends all the time you need, and answers every question you have. Rarely have I had a doctor that seems to genuinely want to help, this one I believe actually does want to help me feel and get better.

Dr Murrell and many on his team have been my pain management team for about 8 years now. I followed him from the previous pain clinic he was working at. They have saved my life in many ways! They give me a quality of life that I would never have without them! Dr. Murrell is so down to earth! I love having conversations with him about non medical issues as well. Thank you for all you do for so many patients! You make a difference to so many people!

Dr. Murrell is a life saver. I searched for 7 years for a doctor that would take care of me and listen to my issues. Staff is always very friendly. My nurse, Jessica, is the very best nurse I have ever had and I've had a lot. She always calls me back and takes care of everything I need. Very professional as well. Would never dream of going elsewhere!!!

Great experience with Dr. Murrell . Although his Nurse in my opinion has no work ethic. Every time I have gone to my appointments she is rude and is constantly outside smoking, and several people I know have heard her talk about patients and is constantly complaining about the staff. Work ethic to me is a must in a medical practice and it should be about the patient's needs. Shame that a nurse gives such a great Doctor a bad reputation . Word of suggestion ... SHE NEEDS TO CHOOSE A DIFFERENT JOB

Office was very nice and clean, staff was nice and very knowledgeable. Dr was excellent, he spent an hour with me discussing my health and treatment. I went home with a peace about where we were going with my health concerns, after treatment I have been able to go back to work and even go to the mall shopping WITHOUT wanting to go home and cry in pain. I thank Dr Murrell for listing to me and understanding and then treating my pain issues.

After falling "victim" to unnecessary surgeries, procedures & medications; I was VERY FORTUNATE to have been referred to Dr. Murrell. Not only thorough & knowledgeable, he noticed a thyroid condition & promptly referred me to an endocrinologist! Unfortunately, he moved out of my area. Though I had caring pain mgt. afterward, I lost those Drs. due to retirement, etc. Once again, fearing "bad"docs, I'm VERY fortunate to have found Dr. Murrell. He's WELL worth the round trip drive!

Dr Murrell is the nicest most knowledgeable Dr I've ever been to. Now he is no longer at The Pain & Spine Clinic & I will miss him dearly. He doesn't rush through his patients, instead he asks questions & listens to everything you say. The clinic will not give any info to where he is working now but I intend to find him. He is the only Dr besides my primary that truly cares about Fibromyalgia patients. I wish you the best Dr Murrell.
