Dr Murch was highly recommended, but my experience with him was unpleasant and not helpful. He did not seem to listen to my concerns or to care. He made me feel like I was a waste of his time. In the end, I was told to continue the physical therapy I have been doing for the past year and I have not had resolution of my hand pain. I will look for a different provider

Dr. Murch helped me when I was brought into emergency after an accident. He has a reassuring demeanor and is an excellent surgeon. Because of the outstanding work he did on my injured legs, after 11 months, my recovery has almost reached its end. I thank Dr. Murch very much for everything he did for me. I will never forget.
