I have seen a lot of doctors in my life but this one takes the cake for carelessness and indifference to his patients. I was referred to him by my PCP because there was a mass found in my lung. He made me do a heart CT scan, pulmonary effusion and a sleep test. When I came into the office for a follow up, of course my main concern was the mass in my lung and how to treat it. His main concern was to sell me a CPAP machine because I tested positive for sleep apnea. I was stunned when he asked me what machine would I prefer. Not a word from him about the mass in my lung. I told him I'm not gonna need that machine if I have cancer. I left the office and they never called me back whatsoever. For your health sake please don't ever use this doctor.

TGH referred this Dr to us while my husband was a patient. He did a biopsy with negative results but continued to insist that my husband had cancer. After my husband died I got the medical records and found that this doctor had lied on my husband's chart saying I was going to have more tests done at the Veterans Hospital. My husband was so sick from lack of care that there was no way he could be moved or discharged. I have since learned that my husband had pulmonary fibrosis caused most likely by Agent Orange exposure while serving in Vietnam. I feel that this doctor rushes to judgement and I would never seek his opinion.

I had Dr.Furman he has excellent bedside manners. I told him I wish he could me my doctor for everything. He is so kind, patient and he genuinely cares about his patients. He does not dismiss you when you express your concerns. He does not rush in and out he actually takes time with his patients. Great Doctor and I would highly recommend him. Oh and he also had diagnosed my thyroid disease when no one else had the common sense to do so. He sent me to have the test done which a hospital failed to
