  • "Dr. Murphy and his staff are amazing! Our bulldog had been living with chronic ear problems that were never really treated at our previous vet. Just one visit at Westside and she had instant relief! The day after her visit, Dr. Murphy called to check on her! It is rare to get that personalized care these days! I highly recommend this practice! Beautiful facility too!"
