Dr. Murphy takes the time to get to know about each patient and their individual needs and desires. Whether it is selecting the correct glasses or contact lenses for your lifestyle, educating you about a medical condition, or simply listening to your concerns, he always has your best interest in mind.
Dr. Murphy grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia and graduated from West Chester Christian School in West Chester, PA in 1994. He then studied Biology at Cedarville University where he met his wife, Amy. They married in 1999, just after Dr. Murphy received his Bachelor of Science degree. After a year working as an optician, Dr. Murphy began his optometry training at THE Ohio State University, graduating in 2004. Family brought Dr. Murphy and his wife back to Pennsylvania where they have settled in Hummelstown. The Murphy's were so happy to bring their first son, Ewen, home from China in 2009. He is now in 11th grade, and enjoys going to the gym, playing golf, hanging out with friends, and longboarding. The Murphy's traveled to China again to adopt their second son, Ethan, in 2016. Ethan🤟 is 10 years old and is in 4th grade. He loves drawing and playing video games. Isaac came along as a surprise addition in 2017. He is now 6 years old, and is enjoying 1st grade. He never stops moving, but he hasn't settled on a sport just yet.
Dr. Murphy also enjoys serving in several capacities at Community Alliance Church in Harrisburg, PA. When he is not busy with other family, work, or church responsibilities, Dr. Murphy enjoys dates with his wife, golf, and going to amusement parks.
