Dr. Murphy has gone way beyond what we have needed as a pediatrician for our son. Yes...sometimes you have to wait a little longer than what is ideal, but when you get to see him, he really gets to know your child. He is very thorough and explains things in a way you can understand them. He is NEVER condescending and to me that is extremely important in a doctor. Most importantly, he genuinely loves children and knows how to handle them respectfully, carefully and gently.
Quite possibly the worst doctor I have ever experienced in my life. You will have no less then a 1.5 hr wait before he sees you, he triple books times and honestly half the time I don't think he has no clue of what he is doing.

I brought 4 different developmental issues with my son to Dr Murphy and he sloughed off each one telling me it was normal. For example, he told me toe walking was just my son's way of "getting from point A to point B faster". Coupled with the other issues I raised (speech delay, feeding regression, etc) he should have known it was a neurological red flag. Now I have a much bigger mountain to climb. His arrogance in dismissing a mother's concern is a liability to all of his patients.

His waiting time is crazy. If you can get out of there in 3 hours, you are very lucky. We have been with him for a few years. It's time for us to change him since we don't have that amount of time to waste in the waiting room
