I really liked Joe when he was doing my testing...he was very professional and courteous, but also had that genuinely friendly aura that allowed the testing to go smoothly and timely.

I felt like the equipment used was state of the art. I traveled 3.5 hours and I needed a diagnosis from a specialist. Dr. Furman was an excellent choice. His staff was competent and everyone showed compassion and empathy. Dr. Furman provided a diagnosis and a plan for recovery. I am really glad I made the trip.

Only Dr. Furman understands my vertigo. He gives me medication so I can live with it since there is no cure.
