Great eye surgery in the valley

I hope that all of the Roaring Fork eye patients know that Aspen Valley Hospital now has an outstanding full-time eye surgeon, Dr. Michael Murphy, who works in the AVH Ophthalmology Clinic. Our community’s patients have traditionally gone to Grand Junction or Denver for eye and cataract surgery, and this no longer needs to happen. I recently had a somewhat complicated eye surgery in the AVH operating room that Dr. Murphy performed exceptionally well, professionally and very caringly. Dr. Murphy thoughtfully consulted several times with my excellent primary care physician, Dr. David Borchers, to determine the best way to perform my surgery, and the outcome is perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Murphy and Johnna, who assists him in a most pleasant and skillful manner.
