Cumberland Foreside, ME |
I could write a book with what I experienced with him. Surgery seemed to go fine, but follow up appointments he was beyond arrogant, doesn't listen at all, and incredibly condescending. He made a huge mistake that should had been caught multiple times during follow up appointments, and patient compliants and they were ignored. After getting second opinions, and consulting lawyers, we could have sued him for his errors, but just wanted the ordeal over with. He is absolutely awful.

Astonishingly arrogant, even for a surgeon. Examined my knee without even touching it. Amazing! Told me I needed surgery. 8 months later, after PT and getting back into shape, my knee is fine, as in just fine-- without surgery. It was easy to get an appointment because they have a big chop shop in Portland, with 4 wings. But, be careful or you'll potentially find yourself having surgery that you don't need. Negligent. Absolutely negligent.

I recently had shoulder surgery with Dr. Murray. I had ignored his initial suggestion for surgery almost three years ago, thinking I wanted to try to heal myself. Really I was afraid of the recovery process. When I went back to Dr. Murray in more pain than I started, I realized he was right. He assured me that I would feel BETTER from the moment I got out of surgery...and he was right. It was such a relief and my recovery has been much easier than I expected. I have no regrets!

Dr. Murray repaired my torn rotator cuff. He was great at explaining things before and after surgery. I wanted to make sure the issue I was having was not actually a deltoid tear, as I was feeling pain down my deltoid. He explained the reason why that pain was actually coming from the torn rotator cuff. I was also amazed that he made notes on the pictures from the actual surgery that he gave to me, so that I would know what I was looking at. I'm 3 months out and doing great.
