Friendly, spent time getting to know my child
Tamara is always so comforting and sweet to my children and always takes time to answer many questions!
Tamara is superb. She is always super attentive not only with myself but with both of my children. She answers all of our questions very thoroughly and genuinely cares about the well being of my children. It makes it a very easy visit every time
We love Tamara and believe she provides our children with the best possible care. She remembers our children from visit to visit, speaks to them directly, and always listens to all our health concerns. She is an excellent PA.
We love Tamara!
She is very thorough and always does a great job with my children. We enjoy seeing her!
This office is always pleasant, comforting and knowledgeable from the front staff to the nurses and doctors. They do a wonderful job and I always recommended this office.
We usually meet with Tamera, sometimes Dr. Burns. We are always satisfied with the care our daughter receives there. Whenever she is not feeling well they are always able to get us in the same day.
Tamra is always helpful. Questions always get answered and any information/phone numbers I need are always given before I leave. Tamra is an asset to your office.
It was a great experience. Tamara Murphy is wonderful.
Tamara is always kind and friendly.
Tamara is amazing, her medical knowledge is superb and her bed side manor is even better. all around an excellent doctor, I would not trust anyone else with my child care.
We love Tamara! She is excellent with kids and always very patient and caring. After leaving, my 3 y.o. son said "I like my doctor, she's so nice to me!". He also requested to go back and see her the next day!
Absolutely love this office! the staff are so helpful with every single question I have about my daughter and also my son, they take my questions very seriously.
Tamara took time with us and answered all of our questions.

Tamara is so personable and really makes my daughter feel comfortable while we are there. She listens to everything going on and really shows concern for her.
wonderful staff that are patient and kind. knowledgeable and experienced.
We love Dr. Tamara. She knows all 4 of my children, remembers issues they have and is always willing to answer any questions. She is very sweet and explains everything clearly and never makes me feel bad for asking any question.
Tamera was great with Asher and helped answer all questions I had!
In the last year, I've probably come into contact with more than 20 care providers (doctors, specialists) for my families care.Tamara is the provider I trust most!Tamara is caring, compassionate, truly listens, engaged in connecting with my children and myself, explains the why's( both why choosing certain treatments but also why issue is occurring,) and ensures all processes function to help us have the best possible experience.
Tamara did a great job with my newborn baby! She was awesome and if I cannot see the doctor I definitely would like to see her again!
Tamara is Amazing and an asset.
I really appreciate how Tamara takes a minute to build rapport with our children/engage them on their level prior to assessing them clinically. We are very satisfied when we receive her care.
Tamara has eased my worries about childhood vaccinations.
We love Tamara. She's always friendly and great with kids and adults. We trust her and feel confident in the care she provides.
Tamara was very thorough with our concern and had a lot of good information for us. She was attentive and showed true concern. My daughter had an episode after receiving a flu shot of feeling faint, and Tamara was so calm and helpful. She got her a snack to regulate her blood sugar and made absolutely sure my daughter was ok before letting us go. Both of my girls have been seeing Tamara since she was in Dr. Russo's office and we are so pleased with the care we receive from her. We were very sad to see Dr. Russo retire (though very happy for Dr. Russo!) but we are so glad to have someone else that takes the time to listen to all of our concerns and questions and seems genuinely invested in our family's healthcare.
very fast getting a same day appointment for my sick child and staff was very caring and gentle with child.
this was the first time we have been here because our child is 6 days old. after birth she had light therapy and the hospital recommend we get in for a follow up with a provider asap. even with the holidays they were able to get us in next day. Tamara was very pleasant and sweet with our baby and us. we were very pleased with our experience!
we love Tamara. she is always kind and patient during our appointments.

I always ask for Tamara Murphy since she has started at our office. We miss Dr. Leonard, but have been very happy with Tamara Murphy!!
I always had a good experience with this provider.
Tamara was excellent and had great interaction with my son.
we have always had excellent care when we see Tamara or Dr Burns. They show concern for any of my questions and never rush us through
We had a great 4 month visit. I feel that the staff does their best to handle an unnerving time during the vaccinations.
Always love to see Tamara Murphy, she is very competent and caring!

Donna and Tamera were excellent!!
I was so incredibly impressed with Tamara. she was so incredible and thorough! I'm so happy to have her as my children's provider.
This was our first visit with Tammy as Dr. Maria Leonard moved out of the area and I was very pleased with the service and care that was provided for my children.
awesome people with a lot of care
Tamara is always so great with out children. She listens to our concerns and gives great advice and treatment plans. the nursing staff is also excellent at this office.
very happy with our visit
Tamara is phenomenal. She accurately diagnosed the problem (pyloric stenosis) and got the ultrasound ordered ASAP. She helped us make informed decisions about a sudden, required surgery. Lindsay, the nurse, was also very helpful and made calls to pediatric hospitals on my behalf while I was at the ultrasound with my newborn, so that we were better informed and chose the best surgery site possible.
We love Tamara. She is very personable and confident in her assessments of our children. This is reassuring. I always feel like I can ask questions without feeling rushed and Tamara listens attentively. She smiles and has a nice personality. Thanks Tamara!
we have always had a great experience with our visits
our first time seeing Tamara and hopewe see her at every visit. she was very caring and knowledgeable. She had 2 students with her and it was evident that she was equally as good of teacher as she is a provider.
Tamara has always been kind and taken the time we need.
very friendly and knowledgeable staff!
We love Tamara, I am glad both kids are able to consistently see her for their appointments. She is great with kids, and it is always a pleasure!
I had a very good experience yesterday.
Tamara always gives the best care and is friendly and professional.
We prefer to see Tamara even over the Dr when we go to the office.
always friendly. They answer my questions without making me feel as though we need to rush.
Wonderful experience for our first trip to the office!
We love Tamara. Great visit.
Tamara has always been wonderful with our family. we hope to continue seeing her for many years to come.
Tamara was very nice and informative. I was glad to have met her after hearing that Dr Leonard had left the practice (as we were very disappointed about that). we look forward to seeing her again in the future.
Tamara is great, very personal & friendly with the kids. She knows us & knows the kids. Always look forward to our visits...unless it's because one of the kids is sick!
Overall, good visit. Wish the wait time to be seen wasn't so long.
