This doctor seems to have poor time management skills. Plan to wait an extended time in the waiting area and once inside an exam room if she is chosen for a visit. I went twice and waited almost an hour and a half each time and never saw her. She has a nurse and a PA that appear to do most of her visits and patient care. Although my insurance covers her treatment I will probably look for another local provider next time.

This is the best Doctors office I have ever been to. Dr. Murphy really listened to me. I felt like it was the first time in my life that a doctor really heard what I was saying and listened to my symptoms and had steps on how to fix what was going on. I am so grateful that I have found her and his supportive team. Every employee that I have met at Colon Surgeon of Charleston .Gastroenterology has been so warm and friendly and willing to help.

An over 45 minute wait time shows no respect for her patients time. Dr. Murphy is brusque and fake sweet. Even her staff is cowed by her. And I was told that the practice policy is that a patient can't switch doctors within the practice. So I switched practices.
