Dr. Peter J. Murphy Is arrogant and refused to follow instructions from a specialty rehabilitation center. Patient was sent because of concern of a hand tremor at night by a nurse fearing onset of seizures. This was never addressed but Dr. PJM decided to ignore instructions of"MUST HAVE VENTILATOR ON PM!!!!!"DUE TO COPD AND SEVERE SLEEP APNEA . Dr M gave orders to remove ventilator causing lack of oxygen to brain resulting in paralysis,spasaticity, contractions of legs from knees down , and more

I was referred to Dr. Murphy during a health crisis last fall. His prompt actions and expertise is ultimately what helped diagnose a rare medical condition that he is helping to successfully treat. Prior to diagnosis and being a new patient, I planned to plead for tests or referrals but Dr. Murphy would arrive and suggest exactly what I expected to have to argue for. I cannot say how much I appreciate Dr. Murphy and his staff for their caring, honest, and swift response to my condition.
