My 18 month daughter has had appointments with both Dr. Murphy and Dr. Staats. They are both wonderful doctors. They provide genuine care and are very knowledgable. Dr. Murphy always talks to us about every stage of my daughter's development. He always asks if we have any questions. At 9 months, we had to rush my daughter to his office on a Sunday morning because she fell and had a gash above her eye. He immediately checked to see if there was any head trauma, he applied butterfly tape and she was excited to have her lollipop. The weekend walk-ins are definitely a plus.
All in all, our experiences have been wonderful! I would highly recommend both doctors.

Dr. Murphy doesn't believe in Lyme Disease. If I hadn't switched doctors, my life would be ruined. Note: Northern Virginia is prevalent with cases of Lyme!

Not everything is caused by anxiety, but Dr. Murphy doesn't understand that.

I was having a lot of problems-- I had consistent fevers for months, I felt like I couldn't breathe, I had rapid heart rate, among many other things.

I asked Dr. Murphy if I might have Lyme. He wouldn't test me and thought not. He even told parents that I just was anxious, despite the fact I was not anxious over anything except for the pain that Lyme was causing me.

Months and months later, I finally got the help I needed, after I lost vision in one eye. I went to a different doctor. Another doctor discovered that I not only had Lyme, but I had Babesia (another tick infection). I am currently being treated. Had I not started treatment, I would be bed-ridden by now. I used to be very athletic, too, but I am taking things easy now. My body can't do what it used to, since I got treatment LATE since Dr. Murphy thought that I was just 'anxious' and probably a hypochondriac.

Additionally, he kept telling me I was slightly overweight. He never checked my muscle/fat ratio. Had he done that, he would have seen that I had a lot of muscle. How insulting.

Dr. Staats is the most amazing pediatrician ever! She was the first and best pediatrician my son had and we were so upset when we had to leave her because we moved out of the area. We wanted to take her with us! She was so great with my son and very patient with me and the many questions I had as a first time mother. She runs on schedule, which is very hard to find a doctor that does not make you wait. We also like how she is in a small practice with Dr. Murphy, who is also a wonderful doctor. She is hands down the best pediatrician and has been recognized at a top doctor in the area.

This is a small two doctor practice but they have office hours all 365 days. I like a small practice where you aren't seeing a different doctor every time and it is great knowing that if your child gets sick on Saturday night you don't have to wait until Monday to see the doctor. Dr. Staats is absolutely fantastic. My teenage sons still feel completely comfortable with her. We have recommended Dr. Staats to so many people - I think all the kids on our block are her patients! I highly recommend this practice.
