very good

October 12, 2015

The doctor acted in a very professional way and told me the truth about my condition. He offered his best opinion as to my care.

October 05, 2015

I have seen many physicians over the course of many years from Cleveland Clinic to Johns Hopkins, Dr. Furman is my favorite - he is such a good listener, honest with me regarding my condition Best Doctor I have had ever!

October 05, 2015

I had a very good experience through the whole process. This includes every one I met and all procedures done.

October 05, 2015

I came from out of state. It was a breathe of fresh air to have my provider at UPMC talk to me directly instead of typing into a computer. I have not experienced that in years. My providers back home seem more concerned for their computer than their patients. At UPMC the doctors in different departments all work together very well. As a patient, this took my stress level down. I saw four different providers and they all knew my history before they walked through the exam door.

Excellent communicator, thorough diagnostician, caring and thoughtful.

September 04, 2015

DR and staff are wonderfull, finally have some answers. Helped me understand things and spent time with me to answer my questions even though it was late in the day ( after 5).

August 14, 2015

Dr. Furman is brillant. Was able to make a diagnosis that other providers overlooked. I feel I finally have an answer for my issue.

August 05, 2015

Dr.Furman and his staff are the best doctor and staff at UPMC! I love him and his team!
