i used to open clinics for drs in tn and miss i brought in i helped them find drs from canada when we didnt have any here available and since i interviewed drs i learned a lot qbout the ones that were caring and good in their field i was very impressed with dr murphy 7 years ago when i started going to him and still think he is one of the most intelligent ones i have ever met if he is cutting meds its because has cracked down on some meds not his fault there are many people taking more than they need a dr can only go by or records and his compassion for chonic pain you unhappy people need to change drs and leave the rest of us alone since we have been with him since our pain started most of us do not want to take pain meds but wnt to be able to leave a halfway normal life so we do what we can with the help of a caring dr most dr just worry about themselves and wont try to help so they can as you say "stay out of trouble" but he cares i have never had a bad test or abused my meds i have several autoimmune dises as well as ra ,oa, ddd herniated disk need knee replacements and have a tumor that is inoperatable so my left would be unbearable without meds thank you dr murphy and staff you have been good to me as i have tried to be respectable to all i dont understand whar some of these people are talking about since i have been going for 7 yrs and they have helped me to get out if i had to get home to pick up my grandson after school and if not still got out quick as any dr i go too
Dr.Murphy is cutting meds to everyone because he is in trouble!!! I bet he will close his doors soon. He has given so much meds to people that don't need them. Its sad that people took advantage of him but he should have known & now the real people in pain is going to suffer.
I left a comment on here a month ago praising Dr. Murphy & his staff but they've shown their true colors. They do NOT care about the patient, I requested 3 times to see the Dr & was sent to a nurse every time. He's now got the DEA or FDA looking at him being the #1 prescriber, so he's cutting everyone's medication in half, without warning, then cutting even more. I have NEVER failed a test, ALWAYS did what they said, NEVER gave them any trouble, but obviously this "doctor" doesn't give a shi* about patients, & literally the reason I was given for being cut is "nothing personal, he just has to save his butt because the important people are watching him now." If he was any good doctor who CARED about his patients & their quality of life, he would stick to what he's been writing his patients, especially the ones who have been there for years, on the same 1 pain medication, never failed a drug test, & he'd actually told me i was 1 of his best patients. Now my quality of life has dramatically decreased & i can't even play with my children like before, I can't sleep through the night, I can't hardly do anything I was able to do before he got all selfish. I can understand cutting people who are on several different narcotics, but cutting people who have LEGIT diagnoses, is outrageous & he deserves to be shut down since this is how he treats his GOOD patients, but gives the patients who fail test after test, the ones who sell their medicines, they get even more medication! It's RIDICULOUS. I used to love his office, but i realize now, they are all about themselves & NOT what's best for the patient that they've been writing the same medicine for years. A DANG SHAME....
A doctor that knows what he's doing, listens to the patient & doesn't try to force you to do anything you don't want or have already tried numerous times. The staff is nice & as long as you respect them, they'll respect you. They try to make everyone's visits not so stressful like other offices & they actually care about what's going on in your life unlike other offices I've been to. I would definitely recommend this dr to patients who have TRUE chronic pain.
Dr.Murphy is a very good doctor. But like most people I agree about the staff. I will say 90% of the staff are terrible. My appointment was the other day and I had a very good and nice nurse for a change. I am like other people when they say that Dr.Murphy needs to be there more. Things go so much better when he is there. Like mine. November's appointment was a NITEMARE cause he was not there but Decembers appointment was great cause he was there and everything ran so much better. As I have read these reviews I must say the same PLEASE DR.MURPHY if you can please come to the office more. I swear to you the staff treat us like people when you are there and when you are not we are treated very bad. Anyone that reads this please understand Dr.Murphy cares and hewill help you. But be very careful what you say around the staff cause it will get twisted and they will talk down to you. Almost forgot if you need anything and you need to talk to the doctor 99% of the time the staff will not tell him. Just change your appointment to a day he is there.
I went to my appointment the other day and was treated like a dog. I like Dr.Murphy but his staff has to go. I am looking for another doctor now. I have been going there for 6 years and its been getting worse every time. Like I read in another review I just wish Dr.Murphy would open his eyes and see what's going on there. The so called nurses are a joke. They treat you bad. I know they have some problems with some people but we are all not the same. Dr.Murphy I hope you read this and I am sorry but I got to find another doctor. I think you really do care but your staff dont give a da-m about us. I wish you well!! One more thing, if you can Dr.Murphy talk to the people that see you without the nurses in the room and you will see what I am talking about.I know by me leaving is not going to hurt your business but before long it will. Again I wish you well.
Dr.Murphy is great but some of the nurses are really bad. The other day I went in for my appointment and I had this nurse that has been working there about 3-4 months and she has to be the worst nurse ever. I will talk to Dr.Murphy next month about this issue. 90% of staff is the worst people ever. They treat you like trash. I wish Dr. Murphy could be a fly on the wall so he could see what goes on there. Also I really wish he could be more so we could talk more. I have been there 3years and only seen him twice.Please Dr.Murphy if there is anyway you could be there more I know things would be so much better. I talk to everyone there while we are waiting for drug test and they all say and feel the same way that it would be better for all. Dr.Murphy you are great and your wife and Amber are the best. Please Please come to the office more.
