Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Murphy for a year. He is always nice and professional and has a great bed side manner. He has treated my shrimp and given me test to rule out any other issues.

Awful doctor. Asks no questions and just orders tests. Each time he would start walking away while I was asking him questions. The gallbladder and stomach digestions problems are complicated and he was totally uncurious. No questions about diet or the pain I was in. I learned nothing about my condition, it worsened and I made some choices that I can't take back. I would not let anyone or any family member near this docter. He's just awful.
