Shaun Murphy, M.D. grew up in Richardson, Texas and went to Jesuit High School where he was salutatorian of his graduating class. He received his medical training at The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and completed his residency at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. He began practice in the area in 1999 and joined Dallas Medical Specialists in July 2004. He is Chairman of the Board and the Medical Director of Dallas Medical Specialists.

In November of 2011, Dr. Murphy closed his private practice in order to accept the position of Chief Medical Officer for HCA Physician Services North Texas Division. We are happy to announce, beginning January 16, 2012 Dr. Murphy will start seeing patients in our new Senior Center of Dallas Medical Specialists at the same location as his previous practice on campus with Medical City Dallas Hospital. Dr. Murphy will see established patients age 60 and older and new patients 65 or older. Office hours are Monday-Tuesday-Thursday-Friday 7:00am to 3:00pm.

“Patients know what is best for them. 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.

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.

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.

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.
