Frequently Asked Questions
Is Dr. Murphree taking new patients?
Yes. After reviewing your paperwork and speaking with you on your initial consultation, he will determine whether he may be able to help you. He will only accept patients he feels confident he can help.
What does the first new patient consult cost?
The new patient consult is 7 and is paid in full after the phone or in clinic appointment.
Do you do phone consults?
Yes, Dr. Murphree does phone consults.
Ninety percent of Dr. Murphree’s practice is now phone consults. We work with patients throughout North America and the world. New patients fill out the new patient history and questionnaire on line. A phone or in clinic consult is then set up. Dr. Murphree reviews the questionnaire and spends one on one time with you asking questions and reviewing your health history. This interview, question and answering, fact-finding session, whether by phone or in-clinic, allows Dr. Murphree the opportunity to dig deep into uncovering how and why you are challenged with your poor health issues. It also allows him the chance to either accept or decline your case. He will make his recommendations, explain his findings, and if needed recommended lab tests. Lab testing can be done in your town at a local lab and or test kits can be mailed to you for at home testing. Results will be sent to him for review. All future appointments can be done by phone as well.
