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.

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.

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.
