Wonderful! Very informative, great staff, knowledgeable and fun too!
I turned 45 and took a long look in the mirror. Over the past 5 years weight had crept on and at 5’3″ tall, I weighed 185 pounds. I vowed to get fit. In the next 6 months I went to the gym 4-5 times a week and spent 45-60 minutes doing cardio on the elliptical machine. My endurance got better but the weight just didn’t come off. A friend told me about Dr. Murphy and the HCG diet. She talked about a pound a day coming off…too good to be true?
I made my appointment with Dr. Murphy for evaluation and started the diet right after the new year, 2010. The diet is very strict and I worried I would be weak and hungry. In the first week I lost 10 pounds! Great motivation to keep going. The second week I lost 5 pounds, the weight just seemed to melt off, and the weight was fat weight not muscle as I had feared as the % body fat kept going down and down. I was not hungry or weak: it was amazing I felt great. In that first 20 days I lost 15 lbs. When I started eating more normally, but continued to eat healthy the weight did not come back on. It was like my metabolism had been reset. I started an exercise program including lifting weights and 30minutes of cardio, 3 days a week and my body began to reshape.
I have continued my exercise program and been on the HCG diet for a total of 3-23 day cycles. Each time on the diet program droppihng fat weight. At 46 years old I feel and look great as I have lost a total of 45 pounds and 15% of body fat with Dr. Murphy, and his supportive staff and the HCG diet.
Fantastic, wonderful program-but better still, the staff! Almost a soul reviving process! Highly recommended.
I started out on the 23 day program to hopefully lose some belly fat. Days 1-4 were the hardest, as 500 calories is a big change. I was very strict during the first 23 days. I did have days where I had a glass of wine, or a bite of kids dinner. But it was OK.
I walked 3 to 4 times a week and did switch to all organic foods. I kept a daily journal of weight gains/losses. Drank lots of h2O and organic herbal teas. Snack time was easy, as an organic apple a day or grapefruit was very good. I had either fresh fish or organic chicken for dinner and a hand full of veggies. My weight at the start was 156. I am now 132 and holding. I have lost inches all over. My body fat is 7% lower and I feel great.
During the HCG program I did have more energy and wasn’t as hungry. My appetite has picked up a little. But my eating now healthier. I would recommend the HCG diet. Take before and after photos. Have your body fat tested. It has been a lifestyle change for me. I’m very happy with the results.
As testament to your HCG weight loss program, I can whole heartedly endorse the program you offer. I’m currently in the middle of my third round of the twenty three day program and I’m experiencing fantastic results for the third time!
During my last participation, I was also involved in a strenuous exercise regime but only participated in ten of the exercise classes offered – at the end of the 30 day exercise program, I actually won second place of all participants for fat loss and weight loss combined! During my HCG weight loss periods, I find that I feel fantastic, have more energy and I am far more even tempered than normal.
Since I began the HCG program, I’ve managed to come within five pounds of my original weight loss goal. Overall I’ve lost over thirty pounds and the weight seems to stay off. I’ve tried numerous other diets and none come close to achieving the results that the HCG diet does. This is absolutely the program for me!!!

I have been a patient of NNPSA (now Murphy Plastic Surgery) for over 13 years now. Dr. Murphy has quite frankly saved my life! I first met Dr. Murphy in 1999 when I had a breast augmentation. And in June 2010, he performed a preventative bilateral mastectomy due to a very strong family history and the fact a mass was found on my mammogram. My mother and sister are both breast cancer survivors, having had the same cancer, same breast, same age. And that age was 48. During my annual mammogram when I was 48, they found a mass. After two years of MRIs, ultrasounds, and “watching” it, I decided to take back my fear of breast cancer and take control of my life. Dr. Murphy helped me do just that!! Even after five surgeries/procedures, I have never looked back for even one second and/or regretted my decision. I don’t think I could have done it without the unwavering support of Dr. Murphy and his staff each step of the way.
After breast feeding 4 babies, losing weight, and turning the corner of 40 my breasts took a dive to the South Pole.
My consultation with Dr. James Murphy was relaxed and I felt he was veryknowledgable of what I needed to have done. Their was no pressure from him oranyone in his office to set the procedure up. But I knew I would not be happy until I had a lift and breast augmentation done. I must say it is quite an improvement from the day I walked in his office. My breasts are back to looking
youthful & perky and Dr. Murphy took all my considerations in. I didn’t even have to take pain meds. I don’t know why I waited so long to have it done. I would highly recommend Dr. Murphy for breast lift and augmentation to any woman. What are you waiting for?
Dr. Murphy performed two surgeries on me, and I look and feel fabulous! His consultation, bedside manner, and post-op’s were always professional and very upbeat. Dr. Murphy has a great eye for making other beautiful. I definitely recommend him!
The entire staff at Murphy Plastic Surgery is awesome! Professional, caring, informative and perfectionists. Tracy is amazing with injections. Love them all. Would use them for any cosmetic procedures.
I felt confident with Tracy and reassured. She took all the time necessary to answer my questions. I feel good about the whole process and very appreciative for the great pricing. Thank-you so much.
Dr. Murphy is awesome as well as Tracie Murphy and the entire office staff! They treat everyone special and give individualized attention for all your needs and questions. Great detail is given for whatever procedure you are having. They truly are perfectionists at this office and are located right next to the surgery center. Look no further for the best plastic surgery Doctor and staff in the Reno area.
I went in for a consultation and was very impressed by the staffs’ professionalism. Everyone really made me feel at ease and confident. Dr. Murphy was very informative and willing to guide the patient to making a decision that is best for them.
Sincerely, Karen 2/2011
Dear Doctor Murphy,
I want to thank you very much for your concern and care for me throughout my recent operations. As you know, I was a little reticent to have this operation at my age, but my husband wanted me to get it taken care of. I am grateful that my friend recommended you. Your reputation is par excellent with the Renown medical group and they made every effort to make me feel comfortable and at ease with my surgeries. Thank Meghan for all her help – she always seems to be there and had an answer to any questions I had.
Some of the surgeons I saw said it couldn’t be done. The surgeons who did my radical mastectomy left my chest in a terrible state. Then I made an appointment with Dr. James Murphy and immediately I like him. He has a great bedside manner, cheerful, encouraging and supportive. He told me “yes” that I was candidate for breast reconstruction. He showed me pictures of his results and immediately I knew I could trust him. The whole experience was amazing and I am very happy and delighted with the results. My new breast looks excellent, natural, full, size, the shape I wanted and there is hardly any scaring. Dr. Murphy is an excellent surgeon who can be trusted with his amazing abilities. I would encourage any patient to submit to his care and feel comfortable know he is going to do a wonderful job with his talents. I speak from my personal experience and it was a good one. Dr. Murphy is an excellent surgeon, I highly recommend, and has improved the quality of my life.
I went in for a consultation and was very impressed by the staffs’ professionalism…
Dr. Murphy has a great eye for making other beautiful.
Dear Dr. Murphy:
I keep trying to figure out the right works to express to you the blessing we felt with your being the surgeon on duty the night (2/20/09) of Chrystle’s horrific snow boarding accident and the simple thank you, heartfelt, seems to cover it the best.
She is even more beautiful now as the accidents (remember she totaled the car on the Monday) have forced her to reevaluate some (make that all) choices she was making and she has matured into a very different individual than she was prior to the accidents. However the fact that your incredible skill as a Plastic Surgeon returned her as she was prior is still unbelievable to us and for that we are grateful beyond words.
My face-lift has made such a difference in the way I see myself. Dr. Murphy & his staff are extremely caring and compassionate people. I felt very comfortable in their care. I had a major heart scare 6 months after and his staff called my home to check on me. That says a whole lot in my book! I would never consider going to anyone else! Dr. Murphy & staff—YOU’RE THE BEST!!!!!
My review is really for the sweet girl Heather that works here. This place offers more services than just plastic
surgery. They have massage and salon services at their co-business Renew MD, face cleaners and dietary products. ANYWAY, Heather is wonderful and friendly and I thought she needed her own review under this business
Their was no pressure from him oranyone in his office to set the procedure up.
Thank-you for your amazing work. I came to you on such high recommendations and I will continue to highly recommend you. Without much time or consulting, you gave me a beautiful set of breasts and an increase in my self esteem. Thank-you for your time and talent.
Wonderful Experience! Very informative, great staff, knowledgeable and fun too! Thank-you.
I want to thank Dr. Murphy and his staff for making my surgery go so smoothly. First of all, I am extremely pleased with the overall results. I was looking to shed some years without changing my look and we succeeded very well. The staff throughout the orientation, during the procedure, and after, took a personal interest in how I was doing. They positively reinforced me every step of the way. I am thoroughly pleased with the entire experience. Any further enhancements will definitely be done by Dr. Murphy and his outstanding staff.
