Dr. Murthy himself is great and highly knowledgeable; however the office itself runs like molasses. Even after arriving early for you appointment, be prepared to wait several hours just to be seen as the secretarial staff is extremely busy eating lunch or taking personal calls. Don’t schedule an appointment if you have anywhere else to be that day.

Unorganized office-Office Staff was unconcerned about the stained cloth chairs w/urine odor and the soiled paper on examining table in the examination room , told us the stains on the chairs were dried- Uncleaned waiting room and bathroom-Over scheduling creating long wait time-Unorganized office staff-Patient records from hospital not present in file, had to recount patient info. at follow-up appointment.
