What People Say About Dr. Susan Murray, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She refused to acknowledge serious health problems despite lab and x-ray proof. She barred treatment for me from other facilities without explanation. She apparently prefers covering for other doctors mistakes rather than treating physically I'll patients. I would not recommend her to anyone. She definitely hindered my goal to health and wellness.

Dr. Murray is THE best!! I recently lost my husband of 45 years and was experiencing some strange physical reactions, perhaps from stress. Dr. Murray"fit me in" right away. She took the time to carefully listen to my story and ask questions, and offered appropriate suggestions and alternatives. She is knowledgeable, patient, and thorough!!!

I have had several primary physicians in my life ...... Dr. Susan Murray is definitely THE BEST !! She is the type of person you would wish were your friend. She is very intelligent & highly qualified ...... She really cares about her patients, takes the time to listen carefully and asks detailed questions regarding your issue(s), so that she can recommend the appropriate tests, treatment plan, etc. If necessary, she will refer you to the best possible specialist.

I've had Dr. Murray for my primary care physician since about 2006 and moved from the Portsmouth area to Florida 3 years ago. I liked Dr. Murray so much I kept her as my doctor and schedule my annual physical with her each summer when I visit New England each summer. She's the best and I've been around a long time (I'm 70) and had a number of doctors over the years. As long as I'm able to go back there (and God willing) she always will be my doctor.

I'd like to thank Dr. Murray for being so gracious when she saw me, substituting for Dr. Marvinsmith. Her referral to my cardiologist will be most helpful, I am sure. Dr. Murray had prepared herself well by reading my record, and she gave me excellent advice.

I have been a patient of Dr. Murray's for many years. However when I tried to schedule my annual physical, I was told I would have to wait 11 months for her first available appointment. I was later called and told my appointment had been scheduled on a day the office would be closed;. my appointment was pushed off 2 months. I mistakenly went to the other Appledore family practice, got lost, and arrived 1/2 hour late. Dr. Murray refused to see me even though I had a 1 hour apt scheduled.

I have been a patient of Dr Murray's for over 15 years. I have followed her from Kittery to Newington and now, Portsmouth and have recommended her and her practice to several friends. The care that she provides is thoughtful, personal and informative. I feel I am given the guidance to make informed decisions that are appropriate to my values and lifestyle. And she's nice!
