Great doctor -- great staff. Broken forearm a year ago and couldn't ask for a better surgeon and staff from Brandi-and Tyson Jakobson - Michelle and PT Marc. Thanks so much
in Fruitland, ID |
I had heard multiple horror stories regarding carpal tunnel surgery. As a result I waited over twenty years to have the surgery done. Dr. Murdock convinced me that it was the best option to resolve the pain I was suffering. I couldn't be happier. One brief visit, minor surgery, and I now have full use of my hand and am finally pain free
