My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Doctors should treat patients, not just their insurance companies. The current system encourages doctors to see a large volume of patients in the shortest possible time which is incompatible with practicing personalized health care. 

Diagnosis and outcomes are better when patients are allowed to describe their concerns in an unhurried, nonjudgmental environment, in adequate detail which will allow the diagnosis to reveal itself. My affiliation with MDVIP allows me the ability to spend the time necessary to make a sound diagnosis based on adequate information. 

The best physicians are those who teach their patients how to remain well, rather than waiting for illness to manifest and then treat it with all the “magic bullets” at their disposal. This approach has made medical care economically unsustainable. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will receive the time, attention and personalized care you deserve.

from William in NJ February 10, 2015 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Thanks for your friendship and care.

from Laura in NJ December 3, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Unlike any Dr. I'd worked with in the past, Dr. Murray has been most interested in accommodating in helping me to manage my health maintenance which, in my case, can be quite challenging as I am quadriplegic resulting from a spinal cord injury 42 years ago. I think he's great!

from Peter in NJ February 24, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Murray's for over 30 years. Each year he gives me a thorough physical examination. These have revealed a number of issues. Dr. Murray deserves a great deal of credit for the treatment he has given these issues, for I seldom see him other than at the annual exam. I regard that as successful results oriented medicine.

from Lydia in NJ February 19, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Dr. Murray has an uncanny way of finding out what's truly wrong with me, and gives me remedies that actually work. I have to thank him for helping me on my way to do things naturally..... he's been extremely supportive and does a great job of integrating natural remedies with allopathic methods and reasoning.

from Frederick in NJ February 12, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Doctor Murray has consistently been responsive, knowledgeable, and caring during the 20 plus years that we have been his patients. Never have we felt rushed during a visit, but rather have always appreciated his utmost attention and thoroughness. In addition, we view him as a dependable source for recommending alternative paths to resolve issues or concerns that we have. We are grateful to… See more

from Edgar in NJ February 9, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Dr. Murray has always responded immediately to every problem, be it large or small. He is remarkably brilliant in diagnosing root causes. His memory of changes since my last rectal examination prompted a visit to a urologist despite a PSA of less than 4. Biopsy detected significant cancer. I am grateful and fortunate to be under his care.

from Jerry in NJ February 7, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

I am never more than a phone call away from my Doctor and when stressed over various-sometimes opposite- guidance from various specialists, I have the opportunity to sit down with a physician that has time for ME

from Deanie in PA February 6, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Dr. Murray, I can't imagine not having him as my physician. Knowing he is always available and always there gives me such total comfort and peace of mind. Dr. Murray gives me his incredible wealth of knowledge, his depth of wisdom and compassion. Being in his presence begins my healing. Dr. Murray is kind; he is an amazing listener and an excellent diagnostician. I am truly blessed to… See more

from Vivienne in NJ February 6, 2014 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Dr. Murray has been my primary physician for at least 29 years. When I had a recurrence of Giant Cell Lymphoma last year, Dr. Murray researched the best Lymphoma specialist in the metropolitan area. He called the specialist himself, and secured an immediate appointment for me. Not only did Dr. Murray get me the appointment, but he also went with me to meet with the specialist. I know of no… See more

from Peggy January 25, 2013 for Simon D. Murray, MD

Dr. Murray has always respected that I know my own body and his amazing diagnostic skills helps me to work together with him to listen to my body. Together we plan a course for my continued good health. Congrats Dr. Murray!

“You are what you eat” has never rung truer. Dr. Simon Murray, an MDVIP-affiliate and Princeton-based primary care physician, asserts, “If we paid more attention to what we ate, then we would have fewer cardiovascular and other chronic diseases in this country.” A powerful statement, seeing that… See more
