Dr. Murphy listened to my concerns related to my problem and explained the alternative actions. He performed a procedure which provided the desired results temporarily but did not have a long term impact on the problem. From the begining the doctor told me that the condition required surgery to eliminate the condition. Because of previous problems associated with surgery, I opted for an alternative.

Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, polite. Doctor Murphy is an outstanding professional. His explanation of what was happening to my right shoulder was easy to understand. He provide thoughtful answers to all my questions. I never felt like I was being rushed so he could get to the next patient. Baylor, Scott &White is fortunate to have him on staff.

This was a consultation about blilateral knee replacements. I am sure he is a good surgeon; he shared the x-rays and discussed treatment options, but we did not connect personally. We were looking for more experience and enthusiasm. Due to my history of lung surgery, we were also interested in spinal not general anesthesia.
