East Sandwich, MA |
The worst doctor I have ever seen. Her lack of knowledge and compassion was beyond lacking. Unwilling to listen or to recommend any proper treatment or advice. Misdiagnosed, which lead to delay in treatment and further complications. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Don't waste your time!

I suffered needlessly with this doctor! I had several issues stemming from a spinal injury that she told me was the result of getting older and entering menopause. I was told to basically get used to the pain. And despite telling her I had a family history and all the symptoms of hypothyroidism she refused me a specialist visit! I went to a new doctor and all was treated! I am a completely new person! If you have Lyme Disease she's fine, otherwise stay away!
Spinal problems are mostly from age-related arthritis, bulging discs, and degenerative joints. BONE TUMORS and INFECTIONS need to be considered in rare cases. For most people, multidisciplinary SPINAL CARE CLINICS help in addition to stretches, yoga, swimming, and careful activities. Doctors screen annually for THYROID disease by examining the neck and checking blood levels of "brain thyroid stimulator", TSH hormone. General providers like us prescribe thyroid replacement as needed.

I would not recommend her to anyone. She provided no recommendations other than getting vaccinated. She spent much of the appointment looking up primary care doctor and their background. Just said she would tell them what to do. Didn't even order blood work. Useless. Poor communicator and poor listener. Just kept repeat g she didn't prescription e opiates which was not why we were there.
Travel health involves not only expensive shots and vaccines. For safe travel, stay alert to 5 F precautions abroad & overseas: clean food and water, flies insects mosquitoes, fomites (snakes spiders scorpions wounds), flu (Tb, bird flu), and flirtation (ABCs of safe human relations). For mosquitoes, avoid malaria yellow fever dengue and now ZIKA! Bring in the names of your primary providers, your itinerary, all pills, medical information, and previous vaccines for best, most complete care.

Very thorough, extremely knowledgable as well as warm and friendly.
Thank you. We learn as much from our patients as from the "books".
Duxbury, MA |
Very thorough in initial examination. Deep knowledge about diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease. Listened attentively to my questions. Very clear explanation as to how treatment would proceed.
Thank you. Lyme bacilli in late stages might transform from corkscrew spirochetes into dormant "round forms", persisters that are more difficult to treat. In some cases, we offer multiple drugs for a longer time duration than conventionally given for early Lyme infections.

Seeing Dr Murray for Lyme Disease. She takes it seriously and treats it aggresively. She is very thorough with background/symptoms questions. Ordered many tests in addition to Lyme to rule things out. Very thoughtful person.
Thank you. I am amazed at how courageously some people manage their antibiotic schedules, nausea, and miserable "Herx" hypersensitivity reactions. We treat not only Lyme but also other tick-borne infections (anaplasmosis, babesiosis, spotted fevers, Q fevers) acquired either locally or abroad. If on antibiotics for more than 6 weeks, we monitor your health, medications, clinical and internal organ responses with regular blood tests and office visits. Best coordinated w your primary doctor.
