With all respect and understanding, I'm hearing impaired and my multiple medical problems are complicated to narrow to specific reasons. However, for the last six months, I've begged numerous doctors and nurses to take my vitals while I do full body position changes from low on the floor to a full standing position. Also to monitor my vitals while slightly exerting myself. I expected this full-day evaluation that this testing would be done - but it wasn't. I appreciate that Dr. Furman and his staff spend time for multiple tests and evaluations on me; however, these tests concerning my dizziness and lightheadedness, only focused on my inner ears and not on my heart functions. I was told by the morning staff, (in the Lab) that my afternoon appointment with Dr. Furman would entail such tests on my heart pulse and blood pressure changes during various moving exertion positions. No such tests were done, other than a single blood pressure comparison from a sitting to standing position. Later, after my sister, communicating on my behalf, insisted Dr. Furman to do some kind of pulse or blood pressure monitoring tests while I made greater movement from the floor to a standing position. Gratefully, Dr. Furman did my pulse check having him conclude it appears I have an autonomic dysfunction. Thank you Dr. Furman for the generous time and professional service that you so kindly spent of me....
