Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Murphy "Every patient is treated in a respectful and caring matter with an emphasis on individualized treatment of the patient. Emphasis is placed on accurate diagnosis followed by education of the patient as to the nature of the disease process and possible contributing factors.  Sufficient time is afforded to the patient to discuss non-surgical or surgical treatment options that may help ameliorate or improve the condition. Lifestyle modifications that may improve the condition or prevent a recurrence are discussed. Treatments options are tailored to the patient's desires rather than the condition alone. If surgical treatment of the conditions is preferable or required, safety and good aesthetic and functional outcomes are paramount, and a thorough discussion of the surgical process, the risks, complications and outcomes that can be reasonably expected are discussed to ensure the patient can make informed choices about their care and rehabilitation."
