Verified Patient Reviews
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. I tried 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.
while he correctly diagnosed me, he would not ever return phone calls. i was first appointment and he was almost an hour late. what the hell.
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 scanned my 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 informed patient, 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...
It made no sense to have an appointment if you letting walk ins be seen first!
The whole staff was very friendly and attentive. Dr. Murphy did a thorough examination and answered all my questions. It was a surprisingly pleasant experience.
office staff very unprofessional; difficult to deal with.
The best doctor in Greenwich caring knowledgeable always on top of the best for me. Works well with all my other doctors to coordinate my care.
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 NOT schedule 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?
Dr. Murphy was very nice, and his staff was amazing!
Dr Murphy is the BEST! very understanding and helpful. He has played a HUGH part in my recovery and long term treatment. I am truly thankful having him as my Primary Care DR.
My first visit was good, Dr Murphy is very positive and relaxed. I felt that he was hearing what I had to say.
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."
Doctor Murphy is great! His staff is professional and very kind. I am very pleased to have such a great doctor in town.
Dr. Murphy is so easy to talk to and very approachable. Such a nice easygoing manner and very happy to explain and answer questions.
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 return an 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.
Dr. Murphy always gives me great medical care. Thorough in his explanations and really listens to what you have to say about your own health! Love that I am finally starting to feel better under Dr. Murphy's care!
very personable, pleasant and thoroughly professional.
Excellent, great communicator, really cares about his patients
He is very good and had a great approach
He's awesome - the only thing that needs to improve is his PA and help in the office. They struggled to help me when Dr. was out on vacation.
I saw Celeste instead of Dr. Murphy. My only issue with this practice is the confusion that centers around scheduling.
My big complaint was how much wait time there was, between checking in and being seen as well as between the nurse and Dr. Murphy. Otherwise, he was great. He is personable and seems very knowledgeable and desires to help.
Great staff. Efficiently run practice.
I highly recommend Dr Murphy. He is so knowledgeable and compassonate. You will get the best care. He is one of a kind.
He is a great doc. Very friendly.
The best Doctor I have ever encountered! Friendly, knowledgeable, thorough, everything you could want in a Dr. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
Great, he was very personable, glad to have him as my new doctor!
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 hospitalized after back surgery, he was very professional and very knowledgable. I would recommend Dr. Murphy to anyone seeking a primary care physician.
muy professional y comunicativo con su paciente.
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.
Dr. Murphy seems to bring a good balance of science and compassion to his practice of medicine. I felt cared for and he is working with me to address my medical needs and concerns.
Easy to talk to, answered all my questions. Highly recommend him
He was very professinal as usual and introduced a new colleague at that time.
Great staff ... Dr. Murphy and Nurse took time to listen
Dr. Murphy is such a kind and caring Doctor. He saw me right away and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
