Dr Murphy is a very friendly and engaging lady! I felt instantly at ease and had great confidence in her obvious expertise. Her staff is also top notch. A special thank you to Melanie who did my preliminary work up. I can highly recommend this practice!

I thought the doctor and the technicians were good. I would have felt better had someone told me that there had been an emergency and because of that, the doctor was running behind. And, when I called to let them knowI had run into traffic and might be a few minutes late, the recording said the office was closed with no other explanation.

Don't let the front staff dissuade you from Dr. Murphy; they do zero to make one feel welcome - especially a new patient. It's as if you are bothering them, but I took it in stride, loving them as individuals andunderstanding they probably don't have the customer service training a front desk should have. In my experience, the first to greet can make or break a Doctor's practice. Let me just say how impressed I was with Juan - Dr. Murphy's assistant! He was professional without being a snob or jerk, has a terrific bed side manner - a true healing touch of humanity! I even told Dr. Murphy she ought to compensate him well. Dr. Murphy is a sweet tiny little thing with the compassion and care that a believer in Christ should reflect - supersized to match no other physician out there that I have EVER dealt with. She is a real gem of a human being and knows her stuff.

Dr. Lori is a consummate professional and very honest. I appreciate her recommendations and professional opinion. I was very grateful for her to have received my last November when I had though I had another eye emergency. She made feel comfortableand at ease; especially that I didn't have health insurance at that time. I definitely recommend her for future appointments.

Office & staff seemed a bit unorganized but one of them mentioned that they were trying a new system so that may have something to do it with. Aside from that and a small wait to be seen, staff was lovely and Dr. Murphy was great at explaining.
