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 shouldbe 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.

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.

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. Theoffice runs like a top. The front office workers are on point, the nurses, the lab workers, everyone is awesome.

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 toget 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.

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.
