Dr. Murphy performed a disc replacement surgery on me and I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. He was very helpful and patient with my fears and questions and explained everything to me. Surgery went well pain-free and have the use of my arm again. Strongly recommend Dr. Murphy.

His bedside.manner is rude and disrespectful. He refused to answer. Any further questions that I had. He evidently knew little about conditions such as mine and said he was referring me elsewhere.
