in Mansfield, MA |
I've been a patient of Dr. Murtha's for at least 15 years. He is extremely thorough and conscientious. He is an excellent physician - caring, compassionate, skilled and knowledgeable. Both parents were also patients of Dr. Murtha; they received excellent care for their cataracts and trusted Dr. Murtha completely. I highly recommend Dr. Murtha.
