If you're looking for a neurosurgeon look no further, Dr. Richard Murray and his team are exceptional! He takes his time, listens to the patient, looks at all MRIs & xrays before he formulates the best plan of action. Dr. Murray is friendly, speaks in terms a non medical person can understand, and a great surgeon! My fiance and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Murray performed surgery along with Neurotology surgeon to remove facial schwanoma and everything went very well. Dr. Murray is very responsive and makes sure his staff contacted me in case of anything that needs to be followed up. I highly recommend him.

I am very thankful that I decided to choose Dr. Murray for my procedure. I had an benign osteoma on my forehead for years (out of fear) and had it removed this year by Dr. Murray. I've had this procedure done before as a child by another Dr. Unlike the 1st time, I felt almost no pain during the entire procedure and it is healing up nicely. He was very friendly to me and my family which made us more comfortable.

Dr. Richard Murray is a phenomenal neurosurgeon. He performed a craniotomy on me to remove a brain tumor and was professional, informative--and most of all--highly successful! I am very fortunate to have someone with his exceptional skill, knowledge, capability and kind disposition.

Dr. Murray is wonderful, skilled, kind, caring. I could not have found a surgeon better qualified to do the 2-part surgery my spine issues required. I highly recommend Dr. Murray for anyone considering ALIF and/or PLIF procedures at VHC. Followup has been top notch. What a blessing it has been to have found this fine neurosurgeon.
