Misdiagnosed my knee, checked for normal MRI damage and it was bone/cartilage damage. Terrible doctor that doesn't listen.

Dr. Murray is one of the best doctors I have ever had! He’s very competent and always tells me exactly what my options are. I have referred a lot of friends over the years to Dr. Pepper Murray and they have all been very happy with him.

This is the kindest most considerate doctor I have ever meet. After reviewing my sons reports, he came in and said “If it was my son this is what I would do”. That is all we needed to hear. He put all of our minds to ease. A lot of times doctors are very technical but they loose the personal aspect. Dr Murray defiantly has both! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!! Thank you so much.

My experience so far is good. He knows what he is doing. He isn’t warm fuzzy but I don’t require that from my surgeon. As long as I’m confident in his judgement and skills (which I am), that is the most important thing. I don’t like it when docs just do what YOU want, instead of making the best educated choice. I begged for a cortisone shot. He was worried that I had a tear and the shot would just mask it and I would injure it worse. Being fairly young and active I appreciate his choice.

This guy is a classic case of an egocentric doctor. I have shoulder pain. Radiating nerve pain in my arm. Murray never even examined my shoulder or put me through any movement exercises to find out where the pain is coming from . Simply said,"go get an MRI" On my second appointment. I was surprised to see his nurse assistant rather than Murray .office personnel never told me Dr. Murray was not who I was seeing. This nurse misdiagnosed me . Had to find another doctor. This guy is a flake.

Dr. Murray and his team repaired a torn labrum for me and did a fantastic job. My visits with him are efficient and informative and I always felt in good hands. I meet lots of people who've had similar surgeries (walking around with a brace does that) and have heard a number of horror stories. I've expierenced little to none of the same thing. I'm recovering well and really happy I was referred to Dr. Murray.

I had rotator cuff surgery from Dr. Murray. He took extra time to explain the process before the surgery. Since I had a conference presentation in Fez, Morocco shortly before the scheduled surgery, Dr. Murray gave me a cortisone shot so I could be without pain while I traveled, gave my presentation, and especially while I slept. Before and on the day of the surgery, Dr. Murray continued to answer my questions. After the surgery, I felt like he took extra care to again answer my questions and hel
