My duty as a physician is to listen to my patients and together, with them, develop a plan for them to achieve their best possible health. I will provide the highest quality of care and I will do so in an honest, compassionate and respectful manner,” said Dr. Murphy. Dr. Murphy has special interests in diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension, weight management, and medical management of patients after bariatric (obesity) surgery. When away from the practice, Dr. Murphy enjoys golf, fishing and computer games, and is an aquarium enthusiast.
