What People Say About Dr. Stephen Murphy, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My doctor retired, he was my doctor for 15 years. They switched me to Dr Murphy and I was just not satisfied with him. It turns out that once you go to a doctor at DAC, you cannot switch to another doctor. After calling them to honestly discuss my issue, they didn't have the professionalism to call me back. I received an email instead. It feels like they are heading in the wrong direction and don't really care about their patients like they used to. Bottom line, I am excited to try a new clinic!

DR MURPHY IS A VERY THOROUGH AND PATIENT DOCTOR. HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME EXPLAINING MY CONDITION TO BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I. I HAVE RECOMMENDED HIM SEVERAL OF MY FRIENDS. HE IS TERRIFIC.

Dr. Murphy is one of the kindest and caring Dr's I have had the pleasure of seeing. He spends as much time as is necessary in explaining everything, and always makes sure that you are his one and only concern for that time.

He is always so professional and caring. Dr. Murphy talked his time and does not rush through my appointments. He also will explain everything in terms that I can understand and includes me in our decisions. Highly recommend!

Dr. Murphy was receptive to my health concerns but not willing to help me save significant amounts on my monthly prescription. I have requested for a heavily discounted prescription but he will not sign off on it. Dr. Murphy is causing me financial harm. Hippocratic Oath means nothing to Dr. Stephen Murphy. I have not had any contact form his office and when I have tried to contact I get an answering service.
