Ratings for Dr. Karen Murtaugh
Dr. Murtaugh is a great asset to Collingwood sports medicine. She listens actively, is empathetic to old warriors who want to keep movin', and fixed my chronic trochanteric bursitis with prolotherapy. When I zapped my lumbar spine hauling a suitcase at the airport, Dr. Murtaugh was quick to order an MRI (In Ontario, a quick MRI is an oxymoron) and refer me to a neurosurgeon in GTA - in 17 weeks total I had a L2-L5 lumbar fusion which I expect will get me back to the tennis court next summer for my 57th season. We need more young (female) doctors like Dr. Murtaugh.
Dr. Murtaugh has been extremely patient with me and helpful with different injuries to my knee and shoulder. She always takes the time to listen. I like her honest and straight forward approach. She is one of the best doctors I have ever seen! I am sad that she is leaving Milton but I will gladly travel to see her anywhere.
As she has three locations to frequents in Milton, Burlington and Hamilton it is very difficult to get an appointment in your own home town and her hours are not convenient for people who work regular hours. Her clinic in Milton is only opened till 3 pm on the days she is in Milton.
I was referred to Dr. Murtaugh for a sports related injury. She is friendly, knowledgeable, conscientious, and actually LISTENS to you as a patient. Her diagnosis and treatment were dead-on, and the problem that had been bothering me for two years was resolved with the treatment she suggested. I would recommend her for any musculo-skeletal problem. Wish I had found her sooner!
Dr. Murtaugh has helped me where no one else was able to, her excellent bedside manner, care and consideration is deeply appreciated. Dr. Murtaugh has sent me to some of the best surgeons for hand problems. I now live 3 hours away and will travel to see her as I trust her totally, injections she has given me have helped me immensely to alleviate much of pain, unfortunately the cortisone doesn't help forever. I have no problem sharing with others that Dr. Murtaugh is a true professional with much consideration to her patients.
