About Zachary M. Murphy

Philosophy of care

My approach is to treat you like family. As family, I have some advice: Let's build a trusting relationship, so we can work together to address your health issues. Remember that your illness also impacts your family, so we also will need to help them. And let’s both remain open-minded so you receive the best possible care.

Why I entered medicine

Medicine is endlessly fascinating and surprises me daily as I learn more and more. On any given day I may have the amazing opportunity to help someone fend off a disease or resolve a complex issue. Some days I make the ultimate difference by saving a life, and I cannot think of a greater honor than that.

Community involvement

I have a free YouTube channel called Ninja Nerd Lectures where I discuss various scientific and medical topics to help students cement their understanding of a particular topic. It has reached nearly 1 million people worldwide.

Personal interests

I love spending time with my amazing fiancé and two French bulldogs, Gibbs and McGee. We love to hike or walk in the park. I love the beach and being in the water, surfing whenever possible. I also love reading and learning about science and medicine each day.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
