I am 87 year's old. Last year I had cataract surgery at the MGH Hospital in Boston, Mass. They screwed it up. Dr. Murphy fixed it with a simple Laser surgery that was quick and painless. Her staff is terrific. (no wonder the Dr. is so good). 5 stars across the board

Cataract Surgery is Truly Easy and Painless - Nothing to Fear!

I was pretty scared about having someone operate on my eyes, but Dr. Murphy made it as easy as a walk in the park. She and her staff patiently answered all my questions and addressed all my fears. They guided me through the process and made the whole experience pleasant and painless. I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy to anyone struggling with cataracts.

Clarity

Dr. Murphy helped me to understand the process of lens replacement and gave me several choices for the particular lens. She was explicit in expectations, both positive and negative. She explained exactly what it would cost and what to expect. She and her staff at the office and at the hospital were friendly and professional, providing an excellent experience. I recommend her and her staff highly.

I had cataract surgery and I cannot say how pleased I am with the results. I was always so afraid to have anything done to my eyes, but Dr. Murphy's calm and full explanations took away this fear. I am now planning on having her do my second eye. She was also my father's eye doctor and he always had wonderful things to say about Dr. Murhy.

DOC ALMA MURPHY

It is so nice to have a doctor and staff soprofessional and responsive to my needs. It is important to have confidence when your sight is concerned. I have had zero problems since Dr. Murphy did both my cataracts, one with a standard lens and one with a multifocal. The multifocal lens enables me to read all but the smallest print. Even though I have only one eye with a multifocal, I had a veryshort adaptation and zero problems. Ihighly recommend Dr, Murphy and her staff.
