Dr Furman and staff were wonderful. my only complaint was the time between testing and seeing the Dr.

December 19, 2019

The receptionist was pleasant and professional. Joseph was very knowledgeable and patient with me. Monica was also knowledgeable, very pleasant and came across as caring to help me get through the three hour process. Dr. Joseph Furman had me take a few steps with and without my cane to determine what my medical problem was. Dr. Furman determine it was the crystals in my left ear that was causing my balance to fall backwards and corrected it. He also ordered PT. causing me to fall backwards
