Dr. Murphy is very knowledgeable and thorough in diagnosing conditions. The only negative thin I have to say is he uses a lot of bad language. When you're trying to teach your children not to do so, it's hard when a doctor of all people is using it so freely. Very unprofessional. Office staff could be friendlier.

Dr. Murphy was just the doctor my son who had anger & frustration needed in his teen years. He was the right balance of humor & toughness. My son grew much in maturity & respect & is still very fond of him; Dr. Murphy helped him gain the motivation, self-control & confidence he needed. Now, years later, at age 20, he earned the title of Marine, and we are about to attend his graduation ceremony next week! We can't say enough about the blessing Dr. Murphy & his sweet staff had been to our family.

Dr. Morrison works within this practice and was a breath of fresh air in this field of practice. However, the staff made a mistake on my appointment card, causing me to miss the real appt. I was given 40 minutes or I would be terminated as a patient. I wasn't able to do this, and asked for more time. They were unreasonable and rude and justified this by saying it was necessary because ' we've been dealing with this all day'. They won't even give me anymore refills until I can find another doc.

Erica in the front office is very rude. Do not use this company Lack of empathy for necessary rescheduling of appointments is inhumane Do not miss an appointment You will be banned without warning unethically when prescriptions are necessary for a patients health.

After having a horrible experience with another practice, my son started seeing Dr Murphy. He is great, and truly cares about his patients, he gave us the answers we was looking for and was very professional.

Always attentive to my child. Listens to her and what she has to say. Explains everything to her. Been seeing him about 8 years. The whole staff is friendly and takes to my child very well in dealing with her disorder.
