I am alive today because of this doctor. I was having bad vaginal bleeding and Dr Murphy was able to see me immediately. He gave me a couple of options but at my age 50+ I choose a hysterectomy. The good doctor was able to get me in his schedule quickly. A couple days in the hospital. Some bed rest and I was able to get my life back. I had been bleeding for 4 months trying to find a doctor that I could trust. Dr Murphy was it. He is gentle, explains everything, great follow up care.

I trust the skills and knowledge Dr Murphy has. He’s easy to talk with and he never makes you feel like he’s rushing you out. I love that he doesn’t overbook his day so you rarely have to wait an extended amount of time for your scheduled visit. He’s never allowed to retire.

I rarely give 5 star reviews but this Dr. was great. He took his time explaining things. He was correct in his visual diagnosis based on test that came back. He gave me scrip for a medicene that was a cheaper way of testing for cervical cancer..due to age test was $200, script was $9 both work equally well. He listen, was easy to understand and down to earth. The office also got a cancelation so I got in in a few days for a concerning condition.

Dr Murphy is such a good dr. He goes above and beyond for his patients. At first I was nervous about having a male gynecologist but he is the best one I have ever had. I was diagnosed with endometriosis and he has been helping me with it. Him and his nurse Laura are amazing. I won’t ever move from Ocala bc he’s my dr lol!
