Reno, NV |
Dr. Murphy refused to provide breakthrough meds at my last visit, and when requested via phone, again, and took 3 days to respond. Prescribed higher and higher doses of opioid medication, then required me to taper down to half of the highest dose, yet refused to rotate to a different medicine on the way down. I would expect a Pain Mgmt Dr. to understand the correct way to taper; unfortunately I learned this via my own research too late. Now a patient of a new Dr. that understands this concept.

Stll withholding final judgment but felt rushed, basically no physical exam at new patient visit,
