I am very glad to have Dr. Murray as my oncologist because she knows how to deal with difficult patients like me. She is a great professional doctor and I highly recommend her.

She goes out of her way to show that she really cares for you. She listens to everything you say and makes sure she answers all of your questions to your understanding and realty makes you feel at ease the best you can even with cancer as a diagnosis. I have refereed other people to her and to this clinic. I praise God for both!

Dr Murray listens intently to what I have to share regarding my post treatment conditions. Before treatment she was very frank about what to expect and in retrospect was 100% correct. I feel extremely fortunate to be under her care and have shared my feelings with friends and family. She is a great credit to BS&W.

I am so fortunate to have Dr. Christal Murray as part of my Scott and White care team. I can count on her to advise and address any issues with thoroughness and sense of urgency. I appreciate her follow-up in making sure I'm getting the best care available. My last appointment with her revealed a suspicious lump in my breast where cancer grew previously. She advised a Diagnostic 3D Mammogram. When she discovered the clerk made my appointment for a regular screening Mammogram, she took immediate action by calling me with a phone number to make the correct appointment. And while the lump was not cancerous, I appreciate her attention to detail and making me feel like a valued patient.

while there is no cure for my particular malady, she immediately dove into finding the source and into all the "cures" that I saw in my research. She is a good listener - a very good trait from this side. I was told that there was a peer review process. I think that should get wider dissemination to patients so we can get additional confirmation that everything possible is being done.
