I felt that she dismissed me before she had even talked with me, I really did not get her full attention to why I was there. didn't go over my history of the patient form I filled out in office regarding any of my today's issues. I waiting a month for this appointment and left with a CBC exam 4 months from now that she could have sent me via mychart. Just feel that I've been pushed from Pain management to RA to Hematology. I wont go back looking for a new Hematology Oncologist

I had a cancer diagnosis in February of this year & Dr. Murray has taken exceptional & outstanding care of me!! I am so happy she is on my cancer team. She always speaks with me regarding my concerns & on this last visit suggested I not take a pill which has made me feel so much better!!!! She never makes me wait long for her & does not rush the appointment. I am so glad she is one of my wonderful doctors.

I arrived at my appointment late because I went to the wrong office. The nurse was very calm in explaining that because I was late, I might not get to see the doctor, and would need to wait. I was okay with this arrangement, but the nurse was able to get me in to see the doctor without a long wait. Excellent customer service, and the doctor was comprehensive during my examination. Excellent service!!

Dr. Murray is excellent, knowledgeable, responsive. When diagnosed with breast cancer, her knowledge in the various preliminary consultations led me to change from Seton to Baylor, Scott and White. Her follow-on thoroughness, knowledge and willingness to answer any and all questions completely, and to take prompt appropriate action still makes me glad she is my doctor.

nurse was great, resident will make a fantastic doctor, care provider brought explanation paperwork with her which was awesome and took the time to explain what the blood work was telling her, I did NOT like that she tried to push various birth control methods on me that have hormones in them - I have no use for bc nor do I want the increased risk of heart disease, stroke, or breast cancer that they cause, plus they are against my faith to use them for any reason.
