Horrible care! horrible experience

The front office will put you on hold and never come back. Your phone messages will never be answered. They will run tests that you don't need! The NP doesn't actually listen to what you are saying. She just looks at you and says OK. Just an all around horrible experience. New dr needed asap!

Four Stars

I love Dr. Murphy and a couple of the nurses are kind. However, the front office staff is terrible! I refuse to see any of the NP's or PA's and am grateful that I am relatively healthy. Getting to see Dr. M can be very difficult unless you are willing to argue with the individual that answers the phone.
