Meet C. William Murphy, M.D.

Dr. Bill Murphy is Double Board Certified in Anesthesiology and in Pain Management. He is a founding partner of two different pain management groups in South Texas, Consultants in Pain Medicine and later Hill Country Pain Associates. He serves on various boards, a member of multiple professional organizations, and has been instrumental in establishing pain management clinics and surgery centers from San Antonio to the Hill Country.


Dr. Murphy is a San Antonio native and graduated from Lee High School in 1971 before moving up I-35 to attend the University of Texas at Austin. He graduated as a proud Longhorn with a degree in Pharmacy and worked as a Pharmacist while attending Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. Upon graduation in 1980 with an MD degree, he moved back to San Antonio for an internship in Internal Medicine and later Specialty training in Anesthesiology with Board Certification in 1986. Dr. Murphy was one of the first to become Board Certified in Pain Management when it became a specialty a few years later. Five years ago, he completed a Fellowship in Aesthetics through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. In August of 2020, he merged Hill Country Pain into the growing pain group Tricity Pain Associates. He feels he is now part of growing a pain management group to bring pain relief to more people, in more places, with better quality and more choices than ever before. His goal is to learn something new every day to make life better for his patients, their families, and his colleagues. He has been in private practice in San Antonio since 1983.


Dr. Murphy has been married to his high school sweetheart, Tisa, since 1974. They have three adult children and seven “perfect” grandchildren. Dr. Murphy loves outdoor activities; he loves golf, exercise and fitness, gardening, travel, and spending time with his wife and family. He founded Turquoise Springs Medical Spa 6 years ago, and loves practicing aesthetics and serving as its medical director. Dr. Murphy has always believed practicing medicine is a blessing and helping patients is not a job, it is a privilege. He penned the mantra for one of the practices he founded several years ago, "Relieving Pain; Restoring Hope". This is still the philosophy that is the basis for every decision he and his staff make for their patients.
