Patient Comments (7)

He was the only doctor who helped to tell me that I had MS and was chasing answers for more than 5 years. I will truly miss him being in the Murray area and his new patients are very lucky to have him.

Dr King is patient and soft-spoken but at the same time eager to understand a patient's difficulties. His knowledge of treatments, tests and medications makes the patient feel well cared for. It is such a loss that he is moving away from Kentucky in April 2017.

Dr. King was one of the WORST doctors I have ever seen. One of the rudest as well. I would NEVER recommend him even my worst enemy.

Even though he couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, he was extremely thorough and honest! A nice change from most Dr. in this area. Wasn't a pill pusher.
