Dr Furlong takes her time with you. She will explain everything in detail, including your options. She listens to any concerns you may have. After surgery, she is available 24/7 via her cell phone number which she will give to you and your family.

Dr. Furlong is the best doctor I have ever met. She goes above and beyond for her patients. She is always willing to communicate with me about any health issue, not just the ones she specializes in. In addition, she collaborates very well with my other doctors. Hands down, an awesome doctor and such a caring woman. I recommend her to anyone who might need her care.

talk to me in layman terms so I could understand...answered every question..she was concerned about the best treatment for me...I have recommended Dr Furlong to family and friends
in Chicago, IL |
The doctor seemed rushed and annoyed to have to see me. She checked her cell phone 3 times while I was trying to explain my health issues. I left feeling that my concerns were not addressed. I will never go back.
I am so sorry you felt this way. My internet was down, so I was using my phone's hotspot for a connection rather than cancel office or change appointments. I was also trying to document all of your important information but getting the computer to stay connected was the issue. I never bring a cell phone into the office and happily my internet issues are now resolved. If you would like, I encourage you to call my office and we can talk more.

Very caring for her patients and excellent bed side manners. She really takes her time to listen to you and goes above and beyond with medical needs. Best doctor I have ever met!
in Chicago, IL |
I highly recommend Dr Furlong not only did she control the chronic pain I had for the last four years she also took care of the many women issue that other surgeons had no idea how to fix. But more importantly Dr. Furlong has excellent bed side manners that you no longer see the medical community. She also makes sure your recovery is pain free and is available for her patients 24 hours. If I had to go thru my surgery again I would not hesitate to go to her. I would describe her a Great Dr.
Very nice responsible and cares about her patients,listens to what you say and spends all the time needed with you.
