Dr. Murphy’s office was exceptional. I was running late and once I got in was seen right away. As a first time patient, offices are usually slow to get you started and to the doctor. Once I filled out my paperwork I was seen by an assistant and then the doctor within a few minutes after that. I appreciated the speed of service and the attention to detail received. I was able to be in for a regular check up and blood work at 12:45 and was headed home by 1:20 or so. The office was clean and welcoming.

There is a reason Dr. Murphy has a perfect 5 star rating. She is by far the best doctor I've ever had and I feel so lucky to have found her after being disappointed by so many conventional PCPs. She's very kind, listens to you completely, and you leave every appointment with a clear short & long term plan. She's really the best!

The office was under construction, the practice is super busy. My appointment was for 1:15pm and I didn’t get called back until approximately 2:10pm. There were about 4-5 patients waiting to be seen all of us sitting in the rather small waiting area. Plus, at one point there was a line of 3-4 patients waiting to sign in, and also be seen. The nurse was very matter of fact in taking my vitals, checking off boxes during my medical history questionnaire on the computer. Dr. Murphy was quite nice and said, she’s not sure what happened and why I had been waiting for so long as she was ready. So, I’m not sure what happened. I booked my appointment on Zocdoc for an annual check up and Dr. Murphy thought I was coming in for a women’s health visit versus an annual check up. I spent more time waiting than I did with the doctor or the medical staff. I was referred to the practice by my partner who had a very different experience than I did during her first visit. We just moved from NYC to Philly and these were some of the same things I was frustrated with in NYC and the medical industry. Maybe it’s just a city thing.

The wait time was ridiculous! It didn't take too long to get sent to the back but after I had my blood pressure and weight taken, I waited over 40mins in the room for the doctor. I felt better when she came in. She's a very nice doctor with amazing bedside manner. I'll definitely go back but I hope they do better about the wait time.

When she called me to discuss my lab results she was also very warm and answered all of my questions without making me nervous or overwhelmed. I saw her for an annual Ob/GYN appointment but will be seeing her for my annual physical as well; I love that her office can accommodate all of these different medical needs!
