"I asked my PCP for a referral to Dr. Murphy when we found a confirmed melanoma. Once he looked at the spot, he removed it immediately that day, and sent for additional testing for staging so the Mohs procedure could be successfully planned. He is very focused and efficient in his work and with his patients, which I appreciate ... In a scary situation, I feel I have been given the upmost care, which will continue with his close monitoring. Hopefully you never need his care, but if you do, I strongly encourage you to seek out Dr. Murphy."

I was well informed about my after care. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone dealing with skin cancer."
