Brian Murphy, MD

Philosophy of Care

I work to engage the patient as an equal partner in their care. I feel that my duty is to inform the patient in a caring manner of all the options that are available to them. I then strive to actively assist the patient in arriving at the best treatment possible. I believe that an active and engaged patient makes the best patient, and that this involvement of the patient in their own care will lead to the best outcome.
