Dr. Patrick Murphy's Ratings
I don't really know how good he is but I didn't like his bedside manner. He asked me if I was under stress. I said I was. He said "what's her name?". I thought that was rude. I hesitated a bit and said "my wife died". He said "that'll do it." He did express his condolences but I didn't think they were genuine. No warm feeling.
I have been seeing Dr. Murphy for about 5 years now. he performed a UPPP and a Septoplasty to correct my sleep apnea. Upfront he explained there was only a 45% success rate and a c-pap machine may be the answer. i asked him to perform the proceedure anyway and have had no issues with my sleep since. I still see him regularly for issues mith my hearing and he is always friendly. he is one of those doctors that feels like "one of the boys" i would reccommend him to anyone.
My comments ARE NOT with Dr Murphy, He is amazing and helpfull. My comments are about his receptionist. I called to cancel an appointment- i was rudely told I called the worng number. Then the phone was disconnected. Then I called back then by mistake my phone disconnected, So i called back again- the receptionist answered like THIS- DO YOU WANT TO HANG UP again- I said excuse me? I explained it was a mistake and then she had the nerve to say OH TWICE? DO you WANT ME TO CANCEL WHATS YOUR NAME- I explained to her she has very bad customer service skills then I hung up. If your too tired of being a receptionst my dear Quit.
Waited 5 months to see this doctor. Seen him and he said I had a paralyzed right vocal cord and definitely needed a CT Scan of my head & neck. This was booked within 3 weeks. That was April, it is now 8 weeks later, and my GP has had these test results back two days after they were done. I can't get past the receptionist to get a follow-up appointment because she says it takes months to get the test back, well hello obviously that is not true if my GP has them. Go look for them....find another doctor his staff are horrible and I have called 6 times...
Great doctor. I went to see Dr. Murphy after seeing another ENT who was rude and sarcastic and unwilling to help me. Dr. Murphy explained to me the pros and the cons of each option but if I chose one option (tonsillectomy) he would do it without a problem. Once I made that decision he answered all my questions fully and explained everything to me in advance. If you have ever done any reasearch on an adult tonsillectomy you will see that it is a very unpleasant experience. Dr. Murphy did everything possible to make the process pleasant. From coming to see me promptly after the operation when I asked the nurse if I could see him (he was elsewhere in the hospital by the time I made this request) or simply down to the apprent skill of the work (I have had no bleeding, and I appear to be recovering faster than most). He was also up to date on a neat trick for less frequently used painkillers which actually worked wonders for me. I would recommend Dr. Murphy to anybody.
Excellent Doctor will go out of his way to help you. Very dedicated and very caring individual. He operated on my throat taking the time to see and discuss what will happen after surgery. He made himself available by phone during the recovery period. I have been informed by other doctors who have viewed my throat after healing a few years that did an excellent job.
about 10 years ago Dr Murphy saw my sister for less than five minutes, and despite what we were told were classic symptons failed to diagnose her acousitic neuroma. She still suffers from the effects of his miss today
