Horrible treatment. I came in at 12:50 for my 1 PM appointment, at 1:30 I asked how long I would be expected to wait as I needed to go back to work, they then put me into a doctors room, butthat was another 30 minuted of sitting there with no one coming in. I did hear my name outside and someone laugh though. At which point I got up and left. I've never been treated with such little respect at a doctors office. They could have just said they couldn't see me if they didn't have time, but now I lost 2 hours out of my work day for nothing.

Dr. Murphy seems competent and like a good person face-to-face and maybe he is but members of his staff are horrible. It took me over 30 days to get a copy of my medical records for a life insurance policy. Itried calling, the insurer tried calling, and no one would lift a finger. Eventually I took time out of my day to go over there to ask for it in person and they still wouldn't do anything. Eventually the policy application expired and we all had to go through opening the policy again. If you have the sniffles, ok, Dr. Murphy can probably handle that but if you intend on seeing him for a long time look elsewhere.

I went for a blood test. After waiting for nearly an hour the NP finally took my BP but couldn't find my previous visit's medical record. Moreover, I saw Dr Murphy for a mere two minutes, for which he merely scannedmy medical record. I have a previous condition, of which, he did not acknowledge nor mention. I have a follow up scheduled for 7/3. Perhaps then, they may be more diligent...

Great visit. Was able to immediately follow up my annual physical with the tests I needed based on the concerns I had, without having to schedule follow ups. Good explanations of tests and care too. I like feeling like an informedpatient, and it gave me a lot of confidence in Dr. Murphy.

Dr Murphy is great but his office NEVER picks up the phone. He is not the right doctor for high touch service. Also, make sure you ask about the costs of the medical tests that seem to be standard or included...

If you have the whole afternoon to devote to this Doctor then give him a try. NOT. DO NOT make an appointment online. They dont see why you have made the appointment until you actually get there and they do NOTschedule appropriately. What a frustrating annoyance. We were told at least an hour and a half for a 3pm appointment. What/???? I had trouble finding the place with my 13 year old daughter and tried calling the office repeatedly. Press 3 for directions: mailbox full! Press 6, press 5, press 4. Tried them all. No one picks up EVER. When we finally figured it out and walked in on time, the FIVE people sitting at desks barely looked up. NIGHTMARE. Four rooms were full of people coming out in bare feet saying, Does he know Im here??--looking annoyed. There was one person waiting too! There are too many doctors in the world, really great doctors, to deal with the way this guys runs his business. FORGET IT! Yikes! BAD BAD BAD TERRIBLE! DO NOT RECOMMEND EVER

As always he was professional, extremely knowledgeable regarding the numerous issues/questions I had, a great listener, compassionate (my husband, a fellow patient, has recently died), & went that "one more step" in gathering information& evaluating symptoms. Unfortunately, I expected & encountered a long wait of up to 40 minutes, which was due to "walk-ins" (there were 2 that I know of) & his already busy practice. My concern is what will happen when he takes on the full "load" of Dr. Borges' patients - I am most certainly glad that he IS taking us on - but how is scheduling & waiting going to be?

I love Dr. Murphy's truly preventative approach to healthcare! Other doctors just try to push pills on your symptoms rather than enabling your immune system to be strong with proper nutrition. "Food is fuel."

My son who is a patient of record of Dr. Murphy recently got very ill. We are in the process of lining up several specialists for his illness, which unfortunately will be prolonged. I could not get Dr. Murphy to returnan email or a phone call for over a week and a half. I clearly stated that my son had just spent a week in the hospital and needed several different doctors for a complex medical issue, and just had a few brief questions. After ten days, I was finally told that I could schedule a phone call, but it would be a week away, because he is busy. This is unacceptable. I will be going elsewhere.

I left a busy, unattentive group practice (10 years) to visit Dr. Murphy. I never have to wait for appointments. He really listens to my concerns and gives me his undivided attention. My prescriptions are filled quickly. When I was hospitalizedafter back surgery, he was very professional and very knowledgable. I would recommend Dr. Murphy to anyone seeking a primary care physician.

Doctor Murphy is the most agreeable and enjoyable general practitioner that my wife and I have ever encountered. You will not find a nicer man anywhere, he is incredibly sincere and knowledgeable. I think that his geneticists background really gives him an advantage over his competition. Highly recommended.
