I have an injury do to a workers comp claim and I used to see Dr Zhang. when I met de Murphy I felt like he kinda listened and then told me I may have carpal tunnel to my wrist not from the injury he didn't even really say it to me but to the intern that was in the room he even said it probably wasn't from the original injury but it's a non dominant hand so before I could even explain myself he walked out. I asked the intern how often could get carpal tunnel to a hand that I hardly use because of the pain and uncomfortable feeling I get when I used it. I feel like he was blowing off that I hurt it at work even if it was a long time ago I had a very dangerous job at that time and if he asked how it happened he would've understoodDec 08,2016
This was a follow up visit after treatment for a finger condition. I was interviewed by a resident, followed by Dr. Murphy himself. He explained to both me and the resident what will be necessary if I ever have a recurrence with this finger. He did some excellent teaching of the resident, which I took advantage of myself. Dr. Murphy excels at teaching and patient care.Dec 08,2016
