"Respectful & very considerate"

I’ve been to see Dr. Murphy several times over the last year, they’ve been nothing but respectful and very considerate of my issues!

"Would not go to anyone else."

Have had Dr. Murphy’s services and a surgery for many years... he is absolutely the best surgeon/ortho Doctor in Tampa Bay! Would not go to anyone else.

"Best limb I have is due to Dr. Murphy."

The best limb I have is due to Dr. Murphy. He tied my shoulder together 3 -4 years ago. Made my decision easy about who to see for my knee.

"I can't say enough!"

I needed to have my knee drained and the fluid tested. I've had bad experiences, but Dr. Murphy had me relaxed and it was painless. I can't say enough!

"Dr. Murphy treats you as he would treat his own family."

Dr Daniel Murphy is one of the best doctors I have seen in 63 years of seeing doctors. Absolutely very compassionate about his patients and wants the best outcome for them regardless of how it would benefit him monetarily. His approach is amazing in that he pays attention to what your body is doing or not doing more so than what might be on a report. Dr. Murphy treats you as he would treat his own family. He is very innovative, wise and superbly thoughtful. Can't say enough good things about him and his office staff. I searched for quite a while for the right doctor and thank God the Lord brought me to him. Very unusual not to have to have surgery after a torn ACL and torn MCL. Thank you dr. Murphy and all the staff Tracy is also incredible compassionate knowledgeable!!... Read More +
