Dr. Furman is my favorite Doctor that I have seen - he has made the most significant improvements in how I am doing he is possibly the best listener I have encountered in my long medical history.

I was pleased that after a morning of tests, in the afternoon Dr. Furman gave me a diaognosis, perscription, and another test, and a followup appointment. I have struggled with vertitgo for over 1 year with other doctors, and in one day Dr. Furman has done more and given me more answers and hope. Thank you.

I had an excellent experience! Absolutely wonderful!! From the front office staff, to all the audiology staff, to Dr. Furman and his staff. He was able to pinpoint my problem when other doctors in Wheeling, WV couldn't.

Excellent in all aspects. I'm very sick.

DR.Furman and his whole staff from top to bottom are the best at UPMC. DR.Furman is the best doctor, I've ever had in my whole life dealing with my health problem! He's the only reason I come to UPMC.( He's just a great doctor! It's a priviilege to have him as a doctor).

Dr. Firman was very professional and thorough. He is obviously a very experienced physician who listens to the patient and very clearly explains his diagnosis and treatment plan.
