Message from Kevin P. Murphy, MD
Clinical outpatient practice specializing in Lifetime Care for children & adults with childhood onset physical disability. The multispecialty care team practice is largely rural, providing local specialty care when possible; networking patients to larger tertiary care institutions as indicated. The regions we serve are underserved, with above average percentages of patients living with low income, chemical abuse & domestic violence. This diverse population includes a large proportion of individuals having Native American Heritage. An ideal advisor/advisee relationship would be built on respect for all with sensitivity for those individuals having complex specialty care needs of a developmental nature living in rural regions. Often these patients suffer from unattended consequences of their specialty condition with lack of access to appropriate medical & surgical specialty care. The hope would be to encourage others to consider rural specialty & Lifetime care as a part of their future clinical & research career choices.
