Highly Recommend
I recently saw Dr. Murrell as a part of my Veteran's Assistance claim. I was skeptical of seeing a psychiatrist, but Dr. Murrell was very professional and made me feel very comfortable with the process. He was very understanding and provided excellent recommendations for how I could seek additional assistance. He is very relatable and you feel like you're talking to a friend and not just a medical professional. Highly recommend!

Great Experience with Veterans!
I had a telehealth appointment with Dr. Murrell and I was very impressed. He maintained professionalism throughout the entire call, but at the same time was very easy to communicate with. It was my first encounter with Dr. Murrell but I felt completely comfortable to open up about issues I am going through. He reminded me of what resources were available to me and went above and beyond to make the entire experience a good one. I would love to work with Dr. Murrell again.

Dr. Murrell is one of the most caring and encouraging people I've had the pleasure to meet. In addition he's an amazing psychologist. He understands the mind and how people behave and has been able to help me change my life for the better. His understanding of anxiety and PTSD is unparalleled. So thankful for his help.

Great doctor
I had a disability claim interview, for the Department of Veterans Affairs, with Dr. Murrell. He immediately put me at ease and relieved my anxiety. The interview went well and he was very professional. He paid attention to my every word.

Excellent service
I have anxiety and was very nervous for my first appointment with him. He was professional and easy going and made me feel at ease right away. I have seen other mental health providers who have not been able to do the same. I very much recommend his service.

Actually listened to me
I appreciated that even though he was reviewing me for the VA, he still recommended things that would be helpful for me to do for my condition. And he actually listened to what I had to say where no other c&p doc ever has before. Thanks doc.

Actually, Mike IS an old friend—I was a client of his almost 30 years ago and was thrilled to find out he was still in business, albeit only part time now. I highly recommended him back then, and still do today!

A Veterans Peer
Dr. Murrell is a veteran's peer. He has been through some of the same stuff as I. He could recognize the "BRAVADO", and ask appropriate questions to clarify. He got answers with seeming to pry. Dr. Murrell made it very easy to communicate. I felt like I was talking with a respected peer at a social event. Thanks Doc.
