First, I must say that I waited too long to talk about this horrible woman. Maybe out of fearw and complete shock in my treatment by her. I should have told my story over five years ago. She should Not be allowed to practice anymore....She DOES NOT care at all...I moved to Ocala when I was a couple of months pregnant with my first child and I chose her thinking she would be ok...I was so wrong. She didn't want to wait for me to actually be in labor before she said to me that she has no time and she's going to do a c- section...I was crowning!!! And my child was Not in distress. Three days after giving birth i had to goback to her office to get the staples removed she took the scalpel and reopened a section of the incision in her office without any pain med..she never even told me what she was going to do. All I felt was a knife and excruciating pain and she filled it up with some form of ribbon and told mac I need to admit myself to the hospital. I was crying and distraught I just had my child and I had to leave for 4 days. She did such a bad c- section that whaterver she sewed me up with was literally sticking through my incision and I could feel material that should be in the inside of me on the outside. When I called the office to tell them she told me to "deal with it" and ignore it. I had to go to another obgyn for him to actually go back and surgically correct the issue. When he realized she was my obgyn he told me he didnt want to be involved in a lawsuit. He knew she wasnt a good doctor. 3 weeks after giving birth to my child I was admitted to the hospital again this time for a blood clot the length of my entire leg and pulmonary embolisms in my lung. I nearly died but it was only God that has kept me and I have had other complications related to the blood clot but I thank God for life. My child is now 5 and I'm just sorry I didn't write this review years ago. I wouldn't even recommend this woman to my enemies. She never cared. She only cared about her horses not humans.

I am saddened to see that this doctor is still practicing. She should have retired a long time ago because her heart is not in her work. Of all things a woman needs when she is expecting a baby is someone who is supportive, caring and listens well. She is none of these things. She is cold; her bedside manner is in the negative numbers. She's rude and condescending when asked simple questions or when bringing concerns to her. I saw Dr. Murphy when I was pregnant with my 1st in 2005 and felt stuck with her because of my insurance or I would have fired her long before we got to the delivery room. Everything is done on her schedule. Lots of appointment reschedules and it was difficult for her to even keep rescheduled appointments. The office staff was fairly friendly. I actually was happy on days when I got to see the assistant only instead of Dr. Murphy b/c her assistant was very nice, would answer all my questions and really seemed to care about me as a person. I was treated with such disregard and disrespect by Dr. Murphy. When I asked her genuine concerns she would get rude and respond with a huff and jump to conclusions when I was only seeking some advice. When I asked her questions about what was going on with my baby (when I would even get the opportunity to ask before she bolted out of the room, I should clarify) she would tell me it was for her to worry about, not me & I didn't need to know. This made me feel very uneasy. I felt like she was hiding something from me. Why wouldn't she just talk openly? I did not feel I could trust her and didn't feel she had my best interest at heart. When I brought her my birth plan with my preferences she scoffed and immediately dismissed it saying "I can tell you right now this isn't going to happen. Birth never goes according to a plan and my only job is to get your baby out. I'll put it in your file though. Maybe someone in L&D will want to read it later." She never even looked at it and refused to discuss any of it with me! And if that's "her only job" she needs to find a new one because she's not doing it well. I'll tell you why "birth never goes according to a plan", because birth goes according to HER plan. It's *all* on her schedule. What's convenient for her. She sure as heck made sure I had my baby in time so she could still make it home in time to catch the game on Sunday. She did an episiotomy against my wishes (which was in my birth plan that she never read). She put me on pitocin when I had requested to move around during labor (b/c my labor wasn't going fast enough *for her* even though I was having regular contractions on my own--maybe if I'd been allowed to get out of bed it would have!!). I could go on & on. Even my mom who flew in for the birth & only "met" her for the hour that I was pushing didn't like her at all. She said it was a good thing I had such a nice nurse b/c the doctor was was so cold.
It may sound cliche, but I would never recommend this doctor in a million years, even if she was the last OB on the planet. She needs to retire already because she doesn't give a crap about her patients and she clearly doesn't know what she's doing and doesn't keep up with what is currently deemed safe or the better option in prenatal care & delivery. My baby went into distress because of all the pitocin she ordered. It took 8 months to heal from the botch job of an episiotomy she gave me and I had trouble holding my bowels for months after. If she would have let me just tear naturally I would have healed better & faster (I know this from the birth of my 2nd son w/ a different OB). But to her it was just "routine" whether it was needed or not, she didn't care what damage she was doing.

Office staff friendly, but Dr. Murphy does not listen to patients questions or requests. I saw her for my 2nd pregnancy after having a miscarriage the previous year. The only good thing about Murphy's office is getting the baby pictures each month. My questions were answered with "Have you bought the book, What to Expect When You're Expecting?" While I did have the book, it's nice to also to be able to communicate with your doctor, especially after losing a baby already. My husband and I were also adament about not being induced, or using pitocin. I refused to be induced and luckily went into labor several days later. I refused the pitocin at the hospital, Dr. Murphy gave it to me anyway. I then received an epidural shortly afterward. Not sure what happened next...husband says the baby and I went into distress, he was escorted out of the room. My next memory is 2 1/2 hours later, about to have my baby. I screamed in pain...Murphy told me not to scream. I then started to cry (not boo-hooing, just tears running down my face) from the pain...Murphy asked me what I was crying about. During my entire delivery she seemed very irritated with me and having to be at Munroe on a Saturday night. As a 1st time Mom, some doctor support would have been great, instead I felt like I was doing everything wrong. Luckily, the 2 delivery nurses, Christy & Kelly were wonderful and made me feel like a human being. I specifically chose her because I thought being a woman she would understand what I was feeling. I would rather deliver my next baby at home with my family then see Dr. Murphy again.

I should have read the reviews before I went to this doctor. The wait was long, doctor was rude with her staff. The office was over booked, but she doesn't care. All they worry about is their $25 administration fee. Will not go there again.

my husband and i were planning on getting pregnant, when we got pregnant we were really excited. I called Dr. Murphey's office to get an appointment, i had to do a survey because she didn't want to deal with a woman that was overweight or high risk. she then told me that she would call back on monday and i never got called back. when i called them back they never got my survey so i had to do it again the girl that took my call told me to come in on the following monday. My husband called off work to come with me and when we got there they couldn't find my appointment after she huffed and puffedd she took me in. didnt ask me anything told me to lay down and then squirted the gel on me without even saying anything to me. (this was the first time i was pregnant so i had no idea what she was doing.) she then googled on her iphone and said ur baby looks like a poppy seed and walked out! didnt even say to get dressed or even gave me anything to clean myself with. i got an appt for 7 weeks this was back in November told me to get blood work and sent me on my way. I got my lab work done and had an appt on Jan 3 2011. Mid Dec i had bad cramping went to er and they said i had an uti. On new years day 1-1-11 i couldnt even walk i was in so much pain we went to the er again and i found out i was having a miscarriage. Turns out my blood type is rha- and i was supposed to have shots during my pregnancy. the doctor at the er was great he contacted dr murphey and all she said she was she wanted to see me sometime next week. On monday the 3rd we went to our appointment she had no respect or empathy for us. i showed her my discharge papers and all she did was skim thru it and threw it back at me told me to get blood work done and sent me home. didnt even ask if i had any questions or anything! after 3 weeks the nurse called me and said they just got my blood work back and said you need to have a shot because u can have a miscarriage!!! r u kidding me!! i told her i already did and thanks for her concern. i went back on feb to get my medical records they couldnt find me the guy gave up after 40 mins of looking for me said he would fax it to me of course he never did. when i went there once again waited another 30 mins and they gave me my medical record. when i was looking at it they had just got my second set of lab work two days prior feb 20. how unprofessional i dont reccomend her or her staff to anyone.

I went to Dr. Murphy for my son's first pregnancy. From the beginning, I was not very impressed with her. Her office hours are ridiculous, only open M-W 9-12 & 2-4, then Thursday only 9-12. I remember her canceling our appointment numerous times only to not hear back from the office about rescheduling for about 3 days after the original appt date(even though the paper she gives you at the start of your patient relationship with her states they will call you back within 24 hours.) For the 9 months I went to see her, she maybe came into my room to actually check how the pregnancy was coming along maybe 5 times out of the 9 months, otherwise I would see her assistant. My last two times into see her before my son was born I didnt even see her, I saw her assistant. The real kicker is that when I did finally go into labor, we went to the hospital that she works in, I was having contraction every 5 minutes. They called her and she told them to watch me for an hour, then send me home!!! I mean come on contraction every 5 minutes!!!! I probably wouldnt have mad it home before turning back around to come back!! They did let me stay, but they later informed me that she was in Tampa for a concert so she wouldnt be able to deliver my son, I had to have some complete stranger I didnt know deliver him since she was "too busy" at a concert to come take care of one of her patients!! I did go back to her once more after having my son, but surprise surprise I didnt see her I saw her assistant again. Also they cancelled my last appt because she wasnt in the office(typical for her) and when I called them back to reschedule I had to leave a msg for them t call me back....that was in Oct. 2010....its now Jan. 2011 and I am still waiting for the call back! I would never recommend her to anyone, I dont know how she keeps her practice up with how little care she actually shows for her patients.

This is the worst dr. ever she ??s never in the office her medical condition always stops her from being there for her patients! A girl in the office names a____ is a total duce bag I hate her! She??s the most inconsiderate bit#h ever!! AN besides she??s not even certified to do ultra sounds!! Yeah she might give us free ultra sounds but is she really reading them correctly or what HELL-O umm I think not an I mean come one when you an ob gyn your suppose to have someone cover for you, at all times. When you call in sick this doctor is unethical. When my son is born I??m going to make sure she doesn??t touch me I don??t want her touching me after reading all of this an I know for a fact that I am not the only person that feels this way about her I have a bunch of friends that go to her an they say the same thing about her!! Doctor Murphy is not professional at all I honestly feel that she??s done her dead as a doctor an it??s time to call it quits lady!! So here is my mother on what an how she feels!!!

Ok so here we go .. I have never in my 53 years of living, met a doctor who, has no ETHICS. This has to be the first doctor in my life , who has no business, being in , business.. She??s very nasty , oh god dear do not even consider asking her , any type of questions !!!!! She becomes, very offensive, and very rude ,,she has a medical condition , that prevents her from being in her office-85% percent , of the time,, the office employees, are not even legally certified to do ultrasounds ...well also she is not, but she does them as she stated just to give u a picture of the unborn baby,, the only part of the ULTRASOUND she actually measures, is the head .. Which each time we go ,she says , oh he is very big and ur not 32 weeks your 36 weeks as of the measuring I am doing now. Lol and lmao. She had an awesome employee, who left her, due to personal, differences, but it had a lot to do with dr. Murphy??s , extremely filthy dirty mouth.. One day I was at the dr, office across basically from her , and my daughter in law and daughter who is still pregnant went in for her my daughters, appointment.. Well they come in the door and doctor Murphy is on the phone now mind you her glass door that slides open to sign in, were closed,, well she used almost every names in the book to, scream@ her employee? she was cussing her with the F-WORD, and more,,, my daughter and daughter and law, heard all, this??? Do any of you call this professional??? It is extremely far from ethical?. Her health interferes with her patients care beyond extreme measures. She is just not fit anymore to be DELIVERING BABIES!!!!! She also does not have an in house, partner, to cover for her.. My daughter went 6 months with out seeing her doctor??? What in the name of god is this all about??? Once again it is about ethics?. Well I can go on, and on, but I hope those of you who use her as ur doctor?I will seriously keep u in my prayers. Because now that is all that is left. Thank you so much..

I have never met an unprofessional, bad mannered, inconsiderate doctor ever. I just recently went to my second visit with her, after a long struggle of getting a review appointment with her since her staff claims they never received my labs which I ended up tracking down for them. First of all another new patient learned first hand on how rude and snippy she is as a person, that patient walked out of her office after a few not so nice words. Secondly she treats her poor staff with such disrespect, and last she not once looked in my eyes to discuss my issue at hand. She was very rude and inconsiderate, I will never go back to that lady and suggest you too take a detour let alone have her perform surgery on me. She needs to learn to have compassion for her patients going through their personal issues...I have found a much better rated and compassionate doctor, I really wish I would have done my research the first time I would have avoided her from the beginning.

I go to Dr. Murphy now, and when i was around 3 months preg. i had an appt there, and she waited for me to get there(25 min drive) to tell me that it was canceled, she canceled that same appt. 3 times, with no explanation. Then when i was five months, i started leaking clear fluid and went to the hospital, she said that it was nothing and to just send me home, what do you know.. im back at the hospital 5 hours later GUSHING blood, but i was fine? & turned out i had a ripped placenta. & now, there is something else wrong with me.. and im 29 weeks(7 1/2 mths.) & i went into the hospital 3 days ago with the same pain as i had when my placenta was ripped, & she wouldnt do a ultrasound, & i went in yesterday also because the pain got so bad that i can't even walk or put pants on on my own. But she says im just cramping from growing, and refuses to do an ultrasound. So im switching to Midwives of Ocala, hope they do better!

Did not call me back at all with the bloodwork results from my threatened miscarriage. I called multiple times a day, for two business days, to find out if I had lost my baby or not. Each phone call I was promised somone would get back to me shortly. No one ever did. No regard for what I was going through as a patient. Completely unprofessional and unacceptable. I would never set foot in this office again.

I was visiting my sister in Florida who was about to be a first time mom, Dr. Murphy was her doctor. She had already told me she didn't like her doctor but kept her because of some insurance issues. When she would go to appointments she would stay on her phone and my sister said she was very inconsiderate to the fact she was working with a human being. My sisters last visit she was 1 day over due so she insisted to induce her she scheduled it for 9 days later because it was "convenient" for her. My sister ended up going into labor Monday night (she was scheduled for Thursday) We never left her house until contractions were 5 Min's apart at around 1:00am on Tuesday. When we got there labor progressed quickly by 2:30 she was already 8cm dilated, the nurses then called Murphy to come in. One of the nurses was comforting my sister and she told her delivery could take 20 Min's or it could take two hours to just relax and Murphy came in, the first thing she said is oh no it can't take two hours I have to go home and clean my house. I think her house could wait, I could not comprehend this woman! Then she continues to talk about her ten dogs she has at home that needed to be walked and she didn't shut up about one that had heart worms. If this isn't bad enough when my sister was pushing the babies head wasn't aligned right so she wasn't coming out so after 15 Min's she threw her hands in the air and said to the nurses " I give up, come get me when something is actually going to happen." Let me remind you this is my sisters first time delivering a baby and Murphy was screaming at her telling her not to breath she was horrible at coaching so thank Jesus that the nurse did take over she was awesome about calming my sister down she had that babies head 1/2 way out in about 10 Min's after that wretched woman left. So the nurses did all the work she came back cut my sister and pulled the baby out. She then stitched her up and told the nurses to clean it up because she had so many things to do. What the hell was she going to get done at 4:00 in the morning? She was the most self absorbed person I've ever met, she tried to make something that should have been all about my sister and the birth of her child, all about her!!! I had my sin in Ocala and I used the midwives of Ocala so if you're in that are I suggest them, they were wonderful! Do not use Dr. Sandra Murphy.....I repeat do not use this woman!!!!!

I used Dr Murphy with both of my sons.... Big MISTAKE. I wasnt totally pleased with her with my first pregnancy but I had already used her so I went with her on the second. The last 5 weeks of my second pregnancy (the most important) I didn't see her. I only got to see the nurse. I asked if we could guess how big the baby was, her reply was "I don't know how to do that you will have to see the Dr" Didn't get a chance to see her untill about 3 days before I delivered, all she did was check how much I was dilated and the heartbeat. I delivered a 9lb 15 oz baby with no drugs. He got stuck and she had to cut through and now I have to see a colon rectal surgeon to fix my recto vaginal fistula, if u don't know what that is google it.... you will be disgusted.

I had one appointment with Dr. Murphy. I waited about 1 hour before her nurse called my name and started doing a medical history. While this nurse was doing the paperwork, Dr. Murphy came out of one room and told the staff with me present, that she had told the "stupid woman" not to get pregnant again. Then she asked her staff if someone could give the "stupid woman" a pregnancy test. Is this how she refers to her patients? She had a total disregard to this person while commenting about her in front of another patient. After this, Dr. Murphy had a file in her hand which she dropped, on purpose, on the floor for the nurse that was taking care of me to pick up. At this point I was not sure about being there.I was taken to a room to wait for the Dr. after the nurse apologizes for her. When Dr. Murphy came in to see me, she kept her blue tooth in her ear at all times. Was a call more important than the first visit of a new patient? The only time she and I had any contact was when we shook hands. She did not evaluate me or the problem I was referred to her for. When I asked a question she replied that my problem was insignificant and that I just needed to get a different pill. I never went back to her again. Complete unprofessional. Not only in her treatment of her patients but in her dress and manner as well.

I went to Dr. Murphy one time. I was almost three months pregnant but, didn't know at that time. She did a pelvic exam on me and gave me birth control and told me although I hadn't gotten my period yet, I could start the pill any day. That weekend I went to my PCP b/c I was sick and even HE knew what was going on with me, did a urine test and sure enough I was clearly pregnant. How she could have done a pelvic exam and even gotten my results back as normal is beyond me. I never heard from her or her staff except to harass me for the $25 yearly patient fee for office supplies! Um, I don't think so...

Even though some say Dr. Murphy lacks bedside manner, I disagree. She is very busy but still provides me with the care I expect and that my baby deserves. She delivered our son over two years ago and we were very blessed and happy, so much that I have returned to her for my care and delivery of our daughter. She tells you like it is, which is good in my opinion. Not that I am saying people are not telling the entire story, I can't imagine Dr. Murphy doing any of the things some people have commented on.

Very pleased and healthy mom of two.

I was a patient of Dr. Murphy's last year from September 2007 - December 2007. I was in a car accident in October and I followed up with Dr. Murphy immediately after. I explained to her what happened and the complications that followed and she blew it off. 1 week later I ended up in West Marion ER, when the ER doctor called Dr. Murphy he was told that she is off and there is nobody else on call. I called her office the following morning to try to get an appointment and was told by her office staff that she was busy with her horses and took the day off!! I was then told that at this point if I was going to have a miscarriage there was nothing Dr. Murphy could do about it and hung up on me! 3 weeks later I ended up going into pre-mature labor and losing my son. So if you want a doctor that is concerned for your well being and your childs life, then please avoid her.
