Dr Murphy has been my internist and primary care doctor for the last several years. He is ALWAYS professional and compassionate.
Could be better. He is one of the best in Dallas.
It was an excellent and informative visit. Dr Murphy is very thorough in his examinations and deeply interested in finding the answers to my medical problems. I am more than pleased with his approach to my care. His nurse also should be complemented for her concern for the patient's care and health.
I thought he was interested in my well being and willing to explore options. He was somewhat thorough. I liked that he didn't have answers but he does have a plan of treatment. I hope that I finally found a Dr. that provides the medical attention that he would want for his loved ones.
Excellent Doctor, doesn't spend time chit-chatting but friendly and pleasant to work with.
I have been a patient of Dr.Murphy for some time and always feel my health is an important concern of his.
In addition to his strong medical knowledge, he is one of the nicest, most patient doctors I have taken my mom to over the years. It is obvious he cares about his patients and their wellness.
Sat and answered questions, didn't seem in a hurry to get me out of office.
Always prompt and professional with a good dash of humor!
Dr. Murphy is awesome. He's answered all my questions and given me the advice I've needed, and arranged consultations with other doctors who specialize in aspects outside of his expertise. He likely has hundreds of patients, but he treats you like you're the only one.
Dr. Murphy is always very patient, thorough, and informative, and he is a good listener.
Good experience all around, wait time was less than any prior Doctors office I've seen. Perhaps some credit to ZocDoc as I filled all forms online. Doctor Murphy was friendly, listened patiently to his patient and of course knowledgeable.
Dr. M is a great doc. On my first appt, unlike other docs I've seen, he wanted to make sure we talked about everything I needed to tell him about. He listened to my input and came up with a pretty precise plan for me. I would recommend him to anybody.
Excellent Doctor, very professional and knowledgeable

He listened to my concerns and addressed each. He took labs and had immediate results.
Excellent attention, so glad to find a good Doctor.
My mother is a patient of Dr. Murphy and as always very pleased with our visit. He talks and more importantly listens to each of her concerns.
The pneumonia injection went well for the first six hours. Now my arm is so sore I don't think I'll ever take another one.
Dr. Murphy is very nice and always explains everything!

Am very happy with Dr. Murphy. Always willing to sit and talk about whatever concerns you might have.
I was a patient of Dr. Murphy's before he left Dallas Medical Specialists and returned to him when he came back. He is a great doctor and I recommend him to everyone I know that is looking for a doctor. The office runs like a top. The front office workers are on point, the nurses, the lab workers, everyone is awesome.
Excellent, attentive and caring doctor. Highly recommend him.
Always courteous, thorough, and takes his time with me. I don't feel like just another patient.
Always have a pleasant experience when I visit Dr. Murphy.
Dr. Murphy is an amazing "technical" doctor as far as his deep knowledge and understanding of medicine, but what sets him apart is the intense way with which he listens to you. I never worry that he might rush to judgement or not completely hear my issues.
Excellent service . Very personable and caring. Would reccomend his services to others.

Having just moved to the Dallas area from Oklahoma, Dr. Murphy has made the transition even easier. I thought that having to find a new doctor in my area would be a big hassle but my experience has been great. Dr. Murphy is very quick to understand and asses any symptoms you have & his nurses are always friendly. They get you in and out very quickly.
Dr. Murphy is the best doctor and I recommend him to everyone here in Paris
Very professional and most enjoyable.
Good doctor - always remembers details from previous visit. Limited hours though so hard to schedule.
Waiting didn't bother me. When it's me turn to see Dr. Murphy, I want him to be thorough and answer all my questions. And he did.
He came recommmended to me by my son who works at the same hospital. He was wonderful. He was very thorough, as well as being very compassionate and knowledgable. He spoke with me like I was a person and that he truly cared about my welfare. I cannot recommend enough. I will continue to see him - even though I live 300+ miles away.
My husband and I both saw Dr. Murphy for the entire eight years that we lived in Dallas. He's an awesome doctor and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a primary care physician. We were always able to get in for sick appointments with either Dr. Murphy or one of his partners on the same day that we called every time. All phone calls were returned by either himself or a member of his staff promptly as well. The office is very nice, clean, and well maintained. If you're looking for a caring doctor who will get to know you as an individual and take your health problems seriously, go see Dr. Murphy.
Excellent as always. Same quality doctor for almost six years.
Dr. Murphy is very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and respectful.
Dr. Murphy is a kind and caring doctor. His staff is A-1 and assists his patients in any way they are able. All in all, the best experience in a physician and staff in many, many years.

I Have been looking for a pcp that I felt cared and listened to my health needs. I have only had one visit and feel I am already on a path to hopefully feeling better. Really like Dr. Murphy and his staff, highly reccomend giving him a try.
Doctor and both nurses were very accommodating and professional.
Very caring doctor.
I use DR Murphy as my primary care doctor (Internal Medicine). I am 74 years old and have seen many doctors in the Dallas area. DR Murphy is by far the best doctor I have ever used. He is a real professional,smart, and knows how to help patients with medical problems.
I trust him and appreciate his honesty and patience.
A more thorough physical would have been nice but it was my first time so we will see how the follow-up goes.
Very impressed. As a new patient I'm completely satisfied with both the doctor and staff.
Easy to talk with and the best doctor I have ever met.
I was dissapointed in seeing my previous physician leave (Dr. Ho) but Dr Murphy seems like he will be able to fill his shoes, very nice man

LOOKING FOR A PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR AND WAS HAPPY WITH SERVICE SO FAR
I have lots of faith in Dr. Murphy and the way he approaches solutions to my questions and concerns. I value his judgement and he always seems to have firm grasp on my health profile.
Very good as always!
i believe he cares for my father
First appointment went well.
Very interested in your quality of life... and how he can be of help in finding the right medicine for you.
Dr Murphy is totally professional, thorough, and understanding. He listens and gives understandable answers.
Appointment was quick and to the point. Which I like. I hate having to wait for an excess amount of time.
Dr. Murphy is the best! He listens! He doesn't condescend to patients. I took myself off Crestor and he didn't panic. Instead he is running tests and will decide the best course of action for me. He is concerned about my sucrose level and is watching that carefully. He sent me to a Hemotologist for the low blood platelets. He is thorough, doesn't rush through the exam and smiles! Imagine that, my Dr. smiles! Love Dr. Murphy. Hope he keeps me!
Outstanding Doctor, efficient covering of all items important to me and other specific questions regarding my health. I received his undivided attention through out my appointment.
Awesome doctor...always willing to spend time talking and answering your concerns
I always like going to Dr. Murphy, he is very thorough and always takes time to answer all of my questions.
