This guy is a quack! We took our grandson to see him for months until Dr. Murphy resorted to having us read out loud copies of lectures he received while in school at UCLA. We spent thousands of dollars to read to him. Needless to say, our grandson was not helped by him and has been on a downward spiral ever since. He attempted suicide yesterday. I feel sorry for anyone else that has wasted their time with this jerk or anyone that has lost a family member due to his incompetence.

My now ex, then husband was/is seeing a psychiatrist in Atascadero. This Dr., I won't mention the name, has kept him on several kinds of medications for over 15 years. One of them is an antidepressent. The Dr. keeps switching to different kinds of antidepressents.
Everone know that if a person continues for this long on them, they can make you suicidal instead of helping. The Dr. has him completely convinced that he must have these meds. and mood elevators, along with sleeping pills, and others or he cannot survive, may even kill himself or someone else.
Since she is beautiful and younger, He feels that he loves her also. When I married him, she kept planting bad ideas in his head about me.
It caused mistrust and confusion.
I had to leave because the situation was so impossbile.
She completely controlls him and I feel it is just for the money she is guaranteed from a weekly, standing patient.
I knew him well enough to know that he could survive better without all the meds. and without her.
