Dr. Murtagh is great. He explains the processes in language that anyone can understand. The staff at the Bone and Joint Clinic are very professional and attentive. Wait times are very short when you compare them to normal doctors visits. I highly recommend them if you have any Orthopedic issues.

Highly recommend Dr. Murtagh and his team. He is very personable and interacted with me and my family as if I was his only patient. Shoulders are his specialty and he uses advanced methodologies in efforts to repair and heal as timely as possible. Truly more engaged than most surgeons. Very passionate about his profession!! I am very lucky that another MD recommended him!
in Prairieville |
I saw Dr. Murtagh for my torn rotator cuff by the recommendation of retired Dr. Hagerman. He also came highly recommended my by Physical Therapists. Dr. Murtagh was very nice and enthusiastic. He takes great pride in his profession and his expertise. He took the time to explain how the rotator cuff tear happens and how they operate to fix it. He and his staff are very courteous and attentive to your concerns. Dr. Murtagh repaired my torn rotator cuff 12 weeks ago.
