I always enjoy my visits with Dr. McMurtry. I guess since I work for a physician, I understand how being a pain in the rear doesn't work for any physician and some people just expect above and beyond always. You go in there for your need whether it be refills or whatever and get that taken care of and then that is it. You don't need to what if this and what if that like a doctor can look into your future. If anyone has a problem with her or her staff, then they are the problem.

Perception was patient and condition were greatest source of amusement for Doctor that day. To begin with stood waiting several minutes while uncaring, undisciplined, lounging staff and a child visitor discussed the snack they were having and then the refreshment choice for the afternoon. Even though I was only patient in office when taken to exam room, nurse reacted like she could not get away from me fast enough. Doctor spent more time out of exam room than in.

For my condition, Dr. McMurtry is not being aggressive in treatments. She does not have a plan ready when current medication doesn't work. Gives little to no advice on exercises, foods, or methods to ease pain. She is very detached from me as a patient. Difficult to get in touch with office concerning need for medication advice or changes. She sets return visits for 3-4 months when there is a NEED to be seen sooner to assess how well medication is /is not working.
