Seeing Dr. Murphy as a new patient was great. Her bedside manner was very professional and she maintained an inquisitive and caring approach to my history and current concerns as it related to my health, asking questions and providing feedbackand advice when appropriate. The office staff was professional and efficient as well. I will be returning.

I met Dr. Murphy for the first time yesterday for a gynecology appointment. She was very kind, attentive, and intelligent and I feel I have a great plan moving forward to get my health on track. I have an undiagnosed medicalproblem I'm trying to resolve and Dr. Murphy did my pap, sent out lots of labwork, and submitted urine tests all in one visit, plus provided a script for an ultrasound. She even made sure the lab pulled all my blood for my primary care visit next week so that I wouldn't have to get poked twice. Keep in mind you can't make two types of appointments in one day (I tried to do my primary and gyn back to back) only because insurance likely won't cover both if they're done within the same day or few days- I appreciated the office letting me know so I didn't encounter this problem. The staff was very friendly and I was taken in for my appointment right away. The phlebotomist also got my blood immediately and finished quickly, which I appreciated because I'm not good with blood draws. Looking forward to my primary care appointment coming up!

First time at this practice, and I'm incredibly pleased. I had no problems making the appointment and being seen. I must have only been waiting for 10 min or so when I was called. Dr. Murphy (and her scribe crew) weregreat, really caring and understanding about my health concerns. Special thanks to the lab tech who managed to do my blood draw on the first try, when I'm very used to having nurses and techs spend ages poking and sticking me. I would absolutely recommend this practice.

I was unhappy with this doctor. She rushed through the appointments, told me that she had other patients waiting ( I didn't keep her long, was just trying to understand my condition), and wanted to continue to schedule appointments for meto come back for things she'd already diagnosed. I am changing offices.

I had not been to see a doctor in a very long time. As a young, healthy, physically active man and I did not feel the need. I scheduled my appointment because I recorded a high BP reading and wanted toidentify what was causing this. The entire experience of going to Stoll Medical Group was great. The office aesthetic was welcoming. The office staff made me feel comfortable. Even with having to fill out paperwork because it was my first visit I still did not wait long at all. Dr. Murphy was the best part of my visit. Her personality automatically made me relaxed. She explained what she was doing and WHY. When she realized I have a decent grasp on my health she tailored her recommendations and follow up to fit. I am actually excited to have a doc that I will have a steady relationship with. Thanks Dr. Murphy!

I absolutely loved meeting Dr. Murphy. When Dr. Mink moved away I was upset because of the rapport we had built but can see keeping Dr. Murphy as my PC for a long time. She was very up to speed withthe times of natural and medicinal treatments / preventative medicine for both sleep and sexual concerns. I felt very comfortable with her and she gave me confidence in her ability to understand my needs. Thank you!!

Dr.Murphy was kind but felt a little pushy with recommending tests that didn't quite seem necessary. Besides that and the fact that I never received a follow-up call with results, my experience was pleasant.

I’ve been looking for a new primary in Philadelphia and found Dr. Murphy on ZocDoc. I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Murphy. She listened to my concerns, took into account my family history and didn’t hesitate to determine tests neededto figure out what’s going on. She was warm and personable. I will continue to see her in the future.
