The care for my broken wrist was good. I have COPD, am on full-time oxygen and housebound. I was very disappointed that the Dr would not work with medicare to give me home assistance while my arm heals. I pay for home health aid coverage - all that is needed is for the Dr to approve it.

I\'ve only seen Dr. Murphy once, so can\'t comment on the above question, but I do feel complete confidence in him after the first appointment. He had a very tight schedule, yet was willing to work me in to x-ray and put a shot in my shoulder. So far, so good! Very much appreciate his willingness to see me when he did.

The entire process was meticulously organized and executed. Best doctor/patient relationship I have ever had related to joint issues, and I have had 8 joint surgeries, including 2 shoulder replacements and 2 hip replacements. Very professionally done - thank you.

I had to wait over a week for an appointment with broken bones. but it was NOT Murphy\'s offices fault it was the main appointment number I had to call. Dr. Murphy seemed concerned that I had to wait so long too. This office is the most professional and caring group of people I have seen and I cannot say enough positive things about them.
