Dr. John Murdoch's Ratings
When I first discovered I needed to have surgery for a pilonidal sinus issue, I was a bit freaked out. In fact after three emergency room visits I went to see a surgeon to discuss my options. This surgeon (whom I will not name) was not good at making me feel comfortable, only told me the negatives; which in turn freaked me out and I cancelled the surgery. Then after another 3 visits to the emergency room I went to see Dr. Murdoch, he made me feel comfortable and confident in what had to be done. So I scheduled the surgery with him; after another visit to the emergency room it was decided my surgery needed to be bumped up by a month, which was very scary to me as it was a very invasive surgery that would have me in bed for several months. Dr. Murdoch made me feel as comfortable as possible before and after the procedure, answered all of my questions and made sure to do regular check ups in to ensure proper healing. He's saved me from years of pain and constant emergency room visits and for that I am forever grateful!
I doubt that his type of personality & caring can be taught but if it could be done, we wouldn't have so many irate, unhappy & dissatisfied patients. He has the full package of surgical expertise, which is important, but most of all he knows how to relate to people & is genuine. That can't be faked. Most Drs who have practiced as long as he has, have developed an "Us versus Them " mentality. Dr Murdoch seemed to have missed that class so just goes with his authentic, kind self! A treasure. I've only had one surgery done by him but should I need another & if it's in his area, I'd wait for his schedule to free up.
Amazing Doctor great wealth of knowledge ! Fantastic bedside manner, energetic and made you feel more comfortable in knowing what he having to do. Recommend this doctor to anyone we are blessed to have him .
I had a pilodinal syst removed from the base of my spine. Dr. Murdoch said it was the largest one he has dealt with, and had to remove a very large amount of flesh. I am glad to say as of today I am healed and is much less time then estimated. The nurses I see at the hospital always love his work, and say that his patients heal faster and are better prepared when they see them. Dr. Murdoch made this unfortunate surgery easier to deal with. Thank you very much Dr.
Dr. Murdock performed a colon resection on me. During my hospitalization, Dr. Murdock visited daily, answered any and all questions, was attentive and, I believe, contributed greatly to my quick recovery. Dr. Murdock is a knowledgeable, considerate and capable surgeon.
