It's always easy to get an appointment. They have a very flexible schedule and get me in quickly every time, especially if I have a tooth emergency, which I find to be extremely important. With Dr. Murphey you have experience and honesty, two things that are hard to find in a Dentist. GT Murphey and his staff truly care about their patients, they make an extra effort to get to know their patients and find out what they need. They always remember me and make me feel very important.
They're really great about taking their time with me, and they don't mind answering my questions. I've never felt like an annoyance to them no matter how many questions I have. Whenever I make an appointment, I'm always confident that they're going to be ready for me at my scheduled time. At other places I've been to, it's always bothered me when they postpone my appointment, but they've never done that here. I'll definitely be going back. I didn't have a bad experience. It's always uncomfortable having to sit through a dental procedure when they use really cold or hot water to rinse your teeth, but they didn't do that here. They made sure that I was comfortable with the water's temperature. I didn't wait long at all. My appointment started on time, and the wait was much shorter than other offices I have been to.
