Dr. Murata 's positive attitude and expertise gave me hope that I can still have a knee replacement done . I was overweight , diabetic and had some thyroid issues. He encouraged me to lose weight, have a positive attitude and be prepared for my surgery. My rt knee is done. I will soon be ready for the left knee. I will definitely recommend him to others.

Dr Murata is man who has integrity and follows a stellar ethical standard. Thank you Dr. Murata for not caving into the duress of a broken work comp system. My level of care has benefited by you willingness to write timely reports that reflected you heard my medical concerns and frustrations and was willing to honestly document your findings. My experience in the work comp service found you to be at the highest level in every category a patient needs in a advocate. You are a very humble man. TKA

I was very disappointed with this Dr., he was very negligent with the care after my knee surgery. I will never recommend this Dr. to anybody. He never took care of my knee infections when I told them about it. He gave me a very strong antibiotic and my kidneys started to fail, I was under a lot of depression and stress. Thanks to God I was fine after a few months and even after this journey I ask him to place me on disability and he never agree to do it. I will never want to see this Dr.

I consider Dr. Murata to be an excellent doctor, overall. He has professional, yet empathetic and compassionate, bedside manner and excellent surgical skills. He is good about answering questions and providing additional, written information. He has performed more than one surgery on me. And I plan to maintain an insurance which will allow him to do another ortho surgery on me in the future.
