    This visit was a waste of my time. I have been dealing with my issue for years. He acted like it was the first time I'd ever sought help and kept offering me things I've already tried. Even after I told him which medications I had already tried and told him I had already done the suggested things on the list he still offered me a medication I already said hadn't worked.

    As a healthcare worker I was pleasantly surprised with my doctors attentiveness and connectedness. He made eye contact and was pleasant and conversational. This put me at ease. He listened very well and was compassionate when I spoke of my personal life challenges. Grateful for a good experience! He looked up my medical records online which made it easy for me as I couldn't remember dates of tests. I'm appreciative of the good experience I had!

      He gave very little explanation of how these tests or conditions would affect my medical condition. I have no symptoms of sleep apnea but he gave me no explanation of why I could have it except for menopause. I had to ask him to explain the testing he was sending me for.

      This is the first time a doctor has taken the time to listen to my concerns about my issue I've been having with sleeping and actually discussed what could possibly be going on and the steps we are going to take to resolve the issue. I went away from the appointment finally feeling hopeful that I will find some answers! I will definitely be recommending to others.

      Dr. Murray is a wonderful physician. I trust him 100% in my care. He is always prepared by looking at my chart both ahead of time and with me during my visit. He is interested in my total plan of care, which is extensive with many physicians. When going through my status with sleep/alert issues, my medications are emphasized. Although changes have not been made for awhile, he makes them when necessary. When I call for refills, they are ordered the very same day. I am blessed to have Dr. Murray. He is so knowledgeable and compassionate. I know I can ask him questions at any time. He is also willing to work with other physicians on my team which is very large.

      This is the first time I met Dr. Murray in person. He had already reviewed my medical history which is lengthy. He had asked for older sleep study records which I provided. He explained what he thought about these studies and how they would affect my treatment plan. Working together, we decided on a medication change that might help. When I told him that I had trouble remembering information, he put it in MyChart before the appointment was over. He also put in a prescription order before I left. He answered all my questions. It was a great experience with him.
