Simply put, Dr. Murphy saved my vision. I experienced a vitreous hemorrhage two years ago and got an emergency appointment. Dr. Murphy took immediate action to stop the bleeding and I've been on the mend since then and see him regularly. He is not only an outstanding and knowledgeable physician, but also a decent and caring man. His staff are exemplary, warm, and considerate. Very good people! Given the complexities of patient care, wait times may be a little long for some., but I deal with it.

DR is awesome! Donna office manager very courteous and helpful. Anyone mocking the long wait time should be crucified! It shows their ignorance. Retina is specialized eyesight is very important. Emergencies and procedures are necessary to save eyesight. Those who complain just may one day be that person who needs emergency surgery & lucky Dr Murphy will do it immediately. I am glad theres a WNY doctor who puts patients 1st & spends time with them. My eyesight is worth the wait. Bring a lunch!

Dr. Murphy was great. He came in on a weekend to look at my eye and put me at peace with its healing. Very friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel special.
in Williamsville, NY |
Excellent Doctor. Terrible wait time. Over three hours for a scheduled appointment. Totally unacceptable Need to re-think scheduling process and value patient time
