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.
