Very thoughtful and experienced. Has helped me greatly handle my medications, while trying to alleviate my dependence on them.

Very self absorbed doesn't leave much room for compassion. He changed 2.5 of my diagnosed conditions within 10 minutes of meeting me and without asking me any questions. I quit smoking years ago and all I wanted after my appointment was a cigarette

I would not recommend Dr. Murphy to anyone. Out the gate I have had issues with the staff and scheduling. Dr. Murphy is self absorbed talking about his own stories the entire time. He is not personable, empathetic or caring. He is more concerned about writing prescriptions over and over again...more

I would not recommend him to anyone looking for anything more than prescription writing. In our meetings I left knowing more about his life than I cared to. Office staff was always pleasant and he did run on time, so not a total loss.

Quite irritable, and talks about himself for the entire session. Hides behind a large desk while you sit in a chair pretty far from him. Feels impersonable. Not to meniron the rude staff that constantly overcharges us
