Specialties

Dr. Michael A Murphy has the following 3 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Adolescent Medicine

These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school.

Dr. Murphy has seen my daughter for about 8 years now. He's always listened to her, been attentive , and everything she needs. She's very strong willed and he's the Dr that talks to her the way she needs to be. He's straightforward and doesn't take crap from her. The whole staff is wonderful!

Misdiagnosis leaves young patient helpless.

Dr. Murphy misdiagnosed my 15 year old, extremely drepessed son and refused acute care after me son had been assessed by several other professionals who all agreed that he needed acute care the same day. Then he refused to see us in the waiting room before turning us away.

I am truly satisfied with this office. I am new to the area, and hesitant about finding a Dr. for my child. It was tough to get the initial appointment, but after that I have never had a problem with appointments or even Dr. Murphy calling me back after hours, when ever I had questions. He has always responded in a timely matter. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable - friendly.... Thanks for all you do....

Wonderful physician!

Dr. Murphy is a kind and compassionate provider. Other reviewers say he runs late, but it's because he actually cares enough to talk to his patients, not just hand them a prescription and take their money. Many times I have had to wait, but it's usually because someone comes in with a problem that takes longer to deal with. I have had my own appointments run over too and he never rushes me to get out so he can stay on a tight schedule. His office does have limited hours but they have always made sure I had an appointment when I needed to be seen.
