Great doctor who cares about his patients. He is very thorough, conscientious, and makes you feel comfortable. I would recommend him to any of my friends. The only downfall that I noticed at the Pooler office was the smell. They need a neutral odor eliminator to get rid of the smell of a dirty feet. It was hard to sit and wait with that smell!

I have been using Dr Mark Murphy for 30 years, Up until today I was always very satisfied. I made a appointment with his Savannah office over 3 months ago and I was given a appointment for February 6, 2018 at 1:15, When I arrived at the office in Pooler, Ga I was very disappointed that the staff there said they did not have me down for a appointment, I assured them for over 15 minutes that I was given that appointment and I desperately needed to see Dr Murphy . Needless to say I was turned away!

Dr.Murphy is my doctor and also my daughters, he's very thorough and pleasant. He is a very polite and caring doctor. You're not just another patient but make you feel you're the only person and can ask any questions or concerns you may have. Dr. Murphy know what he's doing and you feel comfortable with him.
