Concerned Patient

This doctor does not impress me whatsoever.... Writing and changing prescriptions without knowing the background of the client. Sending client into pyschosis by changing meds without knowledge of past history of client. All to promote a new drug and the welfare of a patient.... just like a research center uses rats. Careless.

i have seen Dr Murphy since 1996. i find her to be caring. She really listens and always gives me "do-able" adaptive ski that work for me. This is because she pays attention. she has walked through some tough times with me, and i feel valued and validated during and after a session. I would recommend her to anyone.
