in Oneida, NY |
My experience was very positive. Dr. Murphy listened to all my questions and was very thorough about answering and explaining all aspects of the operation. I certainly appreciate that.
in Syracuse |
I am happy to report that the pain from the arthritis and the shots in my hands subsided the next day! Dr Murphy has a very kind, encouraging manner,while being very professional. In other words ,an excellent bedside manner !
in Jamesville, NY |
I saw Dr Murphy after exhausting all other non-surgical options. I had been dealing with an elbow issue for 2 years. I was at the point where a surgical procedure was my only option. I was referred to Dr Murphy and he was excellent and I knew I was in good hands. He had great bedside manner and explained everything in detail. I elected to have surgery and I was back on the golf course 4 months after with no pain. Dr. Murphy did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone.

Very professional and caring doctor. My experience with him was great
in Oriskany Falls, NY |
I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy. I went to him when he was in Utica. He did my carpal tunnel surgery 21 years ago. When I started having trouble with my hand there was no question who I would see. I got an appointment pretty quickly. Staff was wonderful, behind the desk and the nurse I had. I waited about 1/2 an hour after my appointment. I never felt rushed after Dr. Murphy came in, he answered all of my questions and put me at ease explaining the next step to take.

He was very professional and knowledgeable, I will reccomend all my friends and family to him.
Phoenix, NY |
Nice Dr and he does good work too.
Love the man. He is a straight shooter. Friendly and professional at the same time. I hope I never need another.
in Syracuse, NY |
Very friendly and professional, listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I would recommend him for any hand surgery.
in Castorland, NY |
I am pleased to say that in my opinion, Dr. Murphy is a very informative and straight forward individual. I have already recommended him to a friend and would have no problem recommending to others. It's nice when your Dr, takes the time to get to know their patients a little bit, it helps to make the patients next visit very comfortable. Thank You
in Central Square |
Very pleasant. Didn't tell my husband how dumb he was. Explained everything and what to expect from injury. Answered all questions. Would definitely use again. Real good Doctor.
in Carthage, NY |
I'm going to be honest. I went to Dr. Parker for pain, swelling & weakness in my R thumb.It's arthritis related & will require surgery to relieve the pain (the weakness will not be improved by surgery).I was uncomfortable with the pain & was ready to have it end but was very upset to learn that Dr. Parker no longer does this type of surgery.After learning that I was going to deal with the pain & was just going to leave.Dr.Parker wanted me to meet Dr. Murphy.Will continue comment on JP pat.portal
Jamesville, NY |
Only a 5 min wait for my appt. Was in and out in under an hour. Professional and through, spent the time I needed to get the answers to my problem.
Syracuse, NY |
Prompt care, took ample time during exam and answered all my questions without being rushed. Conservative in approach but thorough - would definitely use again if I need a hand specialist!
in endicott, NY |
Dr Murphy was very professional and knowledgeable. Efficient and to the point,
in Brewerton, NY |
I love him!! Very easy to talk to, listens to problems, very caring attitude
in Syracuse, NY |
Awesome. We discussed the situation of my let wrist due to car accident versus previous degeneration. Due to the fact of other pressing and necessary surgeries forthcoming, we discussed other options for now, which was much more comforting and relieved a lot of stress, and has been helpful thus far.
in Oswego, NY |
He was very kind and caring , to the point with what he was going to do, I like that in a dr. !!
in Liverpool, NY 13090 |
I think Dr. Murphy is the best there is. He has restored us of my hand through several surgeries . I do recommend him to others.
in N. Syracuse |
it was great the operation didn't work but he said I waited to long.I am not waiting 4 this next.I will do it a lot sooner.
in Adams, NY |
down to earth, spoke my language, told me what he was recommending and why and what the consequences would be.
in Syracuse, NY |
I Highly recommed Dr Murphy. His diagnostic skill set is unparalled. His "inquisitive nature" enhances his skill set. I have complete confidence in his diagnostic and surgical skill. He takes as much time as is necessary with me, answering questions, pointing out my issues via diagrams and pictures. When I leave his office, all of my questions are answered to my satisfaction.
Oswego, NY |
I've only met him once. He was easy to talk to and explained things to me.
in Syracuse, NY |
Never fully explained my surgery. Never told that my cyst removal was going to be with a general anesthetic. He looked at my cyst for less than 5 minutes before deciding on surgery, then left me with a nurse for scheduling. Next time I saw him was at my 2nd follow up appointment for 1 min 45 sec- waited 1hr. Rude & dismissive. Day of surgery instructions and directions were delivered after my surgery. Nurses were agitated when they had to talk to me. Felt like a paycheck, not patient.
