Specialties

Dr. Charles W Murphy has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

demeaning...

As far as the staff, most are very nice and caring. Dr. Murphy,although fairly polite, has a tendency for minimizing. When trying to explain to the doctor how bad the pain is, he seems to only truly listen to less then half of what you are saying, it's rather demeaning. I always come out of his office frustrated and confused, if not in down right tears. I'm still in pain because no matter what I try to express, he minimizes the pain, So needless to say, I'm still miserable and dissatisfied. I think if he would spend more then five minutes with the patient and listened, would be a huge improvement.

office visit not worth it...very rude doctor!

There was no point in going to this doctor.He didn't even want to listen to condition or go over treatment options. Not worth the time....He was very rude and kept ignoring me during the five minutes he was in the room.

Back Pain

I've been having lower back pain that was progressively getting worse. No surgery for me! The first thing I told my doctor was that I did not want to have major back surgery if it was not the last resort. She sent me to Hill Country Pain Associates for a consultation and so far I have been doing great. They worked out a treatment plan with me and we are going to manage this pain together. I appreciate Dr Murphy and his office for their good bedside manner and being good listeners.

In Pain

I asked for a referral to Dr. Bill Murphy from my PCP because my neighbor recommended him. He is truly the best in San Antonio. I am doing so much better and am very happy with my treatment.
