Paul B. Murphree, MD

Oakwood Women’s Centre

Languages: English

“My practice has always been based on the unique, sacred relationship between physician and patient, and the deep respect I have for the science, and the art, of being a doctor”, according to Dr. Murphree. “As a small-town boy with artistic talent and a scientific bent, I could think of no more suitable goal to make my life meaningful. As I continue to learn, to influence policy, to teach, and, most importantly, to take care of patients one at a time, I know I could not have made a better choice. I truly love what I do.”

Dr. Murphree earned the Bachelor of Science degree in 1978, and was awarded his M.D. in 1981, both from the University of Mississippi. Following medical school, pursuing an abiding interest in primary care, he studied Family Medicine in Huntsville, Alabama, then transferred to Houston for a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He moved to Round Rock (population 18,000) in 1985, where he founded Oakwood Women’s Centre. He became Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1987.

Dr. Murphree has delivered generations of Central Texas babies, and continues to provide comprehensive Obstetrical services to his patients. He has practiced advanced minimally invasive Gynecologic surgery since its development in the early 1990’s, and is highly experienced in the most modern procedures, including operative laparoscopy and is certified in Da Vinci robotic techniques.

As a lifelong student and teacher, Dr. Murphree recently graduated from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, with a Master’s Degree in Healthcare Administration, where he focused on healthcare policy and quality. He helped bring the Texas A&M College of Medicine to Round Rock in 2008, was founding Clerkship Director for the campus, currently serving as Regional Chair of their Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology where he is directly involved in training the next generation of Texas physicians. He has been Chief of Staff at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center, Chair of ObGyn for an unprecedented three terms, and has served on the St. David’s Healthcare Partnership Board of Governors since 1996. He is Chief Medical Officer and a founding partner of Central Texas Ob/Gyn Associates.

Dr. Murphree and his wife have three children and two wonderful grandchildren, all of whom live in Texas. His hobbies include golf, which he enjoys with his son and son’s-in-law, and art. He is a lifelong photographer and is an accomplished painter, specializing in portraits and figures in pastel and oil.
