Dr. Rhett Murray has no ethics. He doesn't follow the (doctor's medical oath of ethics) to help and treat his patients. Dr. Rhett Murray does not address his patient's questions, concerns, or pain. When asked questions he does not answer the asked questions or inform patient of their diagnoses. He is horribly rude. Dr. Rhett Murray does surgery and then he discharges his patients after their second follow up; without notifying the patient. Dr. Rhett Murray does not help or address patients that are having complications, severe pain, or in need of his medical knowledge. Dr. Rhett Murray's RNs are also rude on the phone.

Rude, spends no time with patient to answer or explain diagnosses, issues, reatment plan, or about surgery. Doesn't diagnoss correctly. Has no regard for patients pain or listening to patients medical issues.Discharges patient after surgery - ( takes patient out of the computer system at his office ), even when the patient is doing PT and going for following up appointments. All medial information & paper work has to be redone by the patient and then put into the computer system.

Never Seen Him

A relative became brain dead after surgery. The call was courteous because there was no chance of recovery.

Dr Murray did surgery for a tumor on my spine that was found by my Chiropractor. He said the fingers were wrapped around the spine so he had to take off some of the bone to get to it and was larger and deeper then he thought ,After surgery he left for the Christmas holidays and left no one in charge and what was to be an overnight deal turned into a night mare .I had such pain all week,they were running me back and forth for cat scans. Finally my daughter called the office and told them to get someone over there to see about me or I was going to die. Dr Hash came over and Did an M R I and found my spinal fluid was leaking out and I had a blood clot and I would be paralyzed if I did not have surgery right away . He went in and put a drainage tube in and solved my problem. I did not see Dr Murray until my stitches were removed and believe that was about 2 weeks later .He may be a good Dr but he needs to leave someone in charge of his patients when he goes off.One nurse said she told one of the staff members what was wrong as she had seen to many of these cases like this. He never did any follow ups. This was in 2006.
