Patient Comments (4)
Maine |
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.
