I love this guy. Have seen him several times as an admitted patient and prior. He is caring and spends time at your bedside. If Dr. Bashir isn't available then he is my next choice. Have had interventional procedures.

Dr.Murarka is an absolute GEM. Because he used every bit of education he's had as a doctor and every ray of sunshine he embodies as a person, he took care of me in his specialty and then pointed us in the perfect direction for further care after I had a bad ER visit for severe abdominal pain. Another ER caught a badly herniated disc at L4-L5 on my CT scan, later an MRI caught an additional herniation at T11-T12 with interspinous ligament sprains. It was all referred pain from my back! THANK YOU!

Dr. Murarka was one of the most friendly and caring Dr's ive encountered. I had a stroke in August 2018. Dr. Murarka checked in on me and always had a smile. When i had questions, he took time to answer them and made sure i understood what he was saying. He later inserted a cardiac monitor. Dr Murarka knew i was afraid and he took the time to comfort me. Im scheduled to see him again tomorrow and Im looking forward to the visit.

After a heart attack, I was transferred to a Phoenix hospital for an angiogram and a stent. Dr. Murarka did the procedure and I have never been so impressed with a doctor before. He spent time to explain everything to me and to answer questions. He totally put my mind at ease with his caring attitude and his professional ability. He treated me as a person, not just another patient. I highly recommend him!!!
