Care provider was very professional and explained in detail my symptoms

September 04, 2019

I left this appointment not satisfied with it's outcome. I do agree with the point Dr. Furman made, I know that there is something more going on. As he himself pointed out, he is the expert in his field, however he left this patient unsettled & uncomfortable with his diagnosis.
