Dr Murphy is an excellent eye doctor, he had to cancel our appointment, and chose to have us come in On the 4th of July last summer, he put his holiday on hold for us! My only concern is getting our medical records, which we need desperately! We requested them three weeks ago, and the request went ignored! Now we are experiencing high anxiety! We need these in three days now at the latest!

When you understand the care and treatment that you will receive from Dr. Murphy, you will not mind the time you will spend at his office - typically 2 - 3 hours.

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!
