Dr Murden was very thorough and candid regarding the procedural options I should consider. He informed me of the pros and cons of each surgical procedure and the recovery period of each. I feel comfortable under his care.

Thorough initial consultation
Very professional, thorough consult, and referral for an MRI to nail down exactly what type of surgery I need. Described an open surgery nerve decompression procedure option, what I was referred to him for.

Great bedside manner but didn’t like it when he told me I would have to be in my cast 6 more weeks! That’s ok because he was real upfront that recovery would take a long time

Excellent orthopedist
Takes time to evaluate condition. Then after proper exams and test results, takes time to explain condition and answer questions. Conservative and not “surgery happy”. Only issue is Panorama’s process to issue scripts for MRIs. They are beyond slow with a bureaucratic process that is as bad as government.

Wrongly diagnosed ankle injury
Dr. Murken disagreed with the Radiologist and the X-Rays from Sally Jobe. After telling him my pain was in my ankle, and him poking around my foot and ankle, he diagnosed that I had the same problem in my foot as my other foot had from 4 years prior. After thinking about it, I knew that the majority of my pain was not in the foot, but the ankle. Asked for another appointment. They treated me like I was over reacting and put me in a room with a recording device. They told me that. He sent me for 6 weeks of PT, even though I had done 2 rounds of PT. After the PT and still hurting, I decided to go to another doctor. This doctor listened and believed me; sent me for an MRI. I had torn my cartilage in my ankle as the X-rays suggested the first time. I wasted money on additional X-rays for him, and 6 week of PT. About $800 out of pocket. Left a message with the office stating all of this and they have never responded. He should learn to listen to his patients!

Dr Murken explains things very well. Encourages connection, questions and spends time at each appointment. Communication with care team was excellent! Dr Murken is also a enthusiastic coach and expects me to do my part in rehabbing my ankle and so expects an excellent outcome.

Foot Surgery
Dr Murken was very knowledgeable and friendly. He fully explained everything about my condition, what the surgery would provide and what to expect afterwards. It was comforting having Dr Murken doing my surgery and he came highly recommended by my primary care physician.
