Me and my new Dr. have requested my medical records for over 1 month now and no response from the Dr Murphy. I am out of my meds and Murphy refuses to renew them. This is neglect, failure to provide medical records to patient, and negligent treatment.

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 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.
