Dr. Murphy graduated from Boston University Medical School in 1995. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine/Primary Care tract at Boston Medical Center (the old Boston City Hospital). He dreamed, however, of having his own medical practice but the time for this had not yet come.
After finishing residency, he passed the American Board of Internal Medicine examination to become Board Certified in Internal Medicine (he also passed his recertification examination in 2008!).
In 1998 he joined a group practice in Waltham associated Deaconess-Waltham Hospital. He quickly grew a thriving practice and was named the medical director of the New England Sinai rehabilitation Satellite hospital at Waltham Hospital. At this satellite facility, he oversaw the unit and cared for very complex rehabilitation patients with severe respiratory, infectious, and cardiovascular problems. The unit thrived under his leadership. But unfortunately Deaconess-Waltham Hospital and thus the New England Sinai close in 2003, victims of the healthcare crisis in Massachusetts.
Dr. Murphy's group practice moved to St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in 2003. Dr. Murphy besides admitting and caring for his own patients here he also instructed internal medicine residents. However, over time he found the commute too difficult into downtown Brighton. Thus in 2005, he joined the Dedham Medical Associates. This this was much closer to home and he admitted his patients to Faulkner and B&W Hospitals. But it was still not his own practice.
However, in early 2007, almost by accident, Dr. Murphy heard of a single physician suite had become available for immediate occupancy in Weston Center. Once he saw Weston Center and the suite at 56 Colpitts Rd., he knew he had finally found the site for his own practice.
Weston Primary Care opened in October 2007.
Dr Murphy & WPC have thrived by maintaining a small, personalized yet professional primary care practice. We have patients who travel from New Hampshire, Rhode Island and throughout Massachusetts to receive care with us. We use an electronic medical record, patients have access to their test results via the web and we have a thriving concierge practice which has become very popular.
