My experience with Dr. Furlong and her staff was great! Staff is always responsive to my calls / questions. Dr. Furlong is super knowledgeable, went out of her way to address all my concerns and make sure all my questions were answered (believe me, there were a lot)! I felt tremendously comfortable with her from the very first appointment. After thorough testing, I decided to move forward with surgery, which went extremely well. Dr. Furlong continuously reached out to me to make sure everything was going well. She made herself available to me day or night to address any post-op concerns I might have. Overall, I am highly satisfied and highly recommend Dr. Furlong and the CCWH staff!

I’ve been coming to Dr. Furlong for over 8 years and has been nothing but professional and caring. Always very concerned of my overall well being and takes the time to listen to my concerns and has always given me the detailed explanations of any questions I may have. Being bilingual is a plus.

I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Furlong through a google search. I had been referred to another doctor by my primary physician but after reviewing his website, he appeared to mostly treat men and their urological problems. I needed a specialist who would understand both the urological as well as the gynecological aspects of my unique situation. Dr. Furlong was wonderful! She was honest, kind and even a bit tough when she needed to be. She had me come back the next day after figuring out my problem rather than waiting for her next opening. She was compassionate and thorough. I felt heard and seen and understood.

I've been with Dr. Furlong a couple times and she is amazing! Her staff is super nice, friendly and helpful. The wait times can be long, but once she takes you in, she will take the time for you and be very patient even when she is busy and has other patients to tend to. Dr. Furlong is such an amazing, kind and caring doctor!

Dr. Furlong is remarkable doctor and an amazing person. She made me feel so comfortable since my first visit. She explained the process and every detail about my surgery. She answered all my questions and doubts I had. Every visit to her office, including the day of the surgery in the hospital, she made me feel relaxed knowing everything was going to be okay. During the surgery there was a little complication, however she went above and beyond to complete what she was there for. The office staff was great and polite all the time. Jessica was so nice and knowledgeable during the exams. Cassandra was extremely pleasant and nice even though I called her almost every other day about my paperwork. I am perpetually thankful and very grateful to Dr. Furlong for giving me a change to live a better and normal life.

Dr Furlong is very personable, with a great, upbeat bedside manner, in addition to being a wonderful, informed doctor. She's very on top of her game, and noticed other issues aside from gyne, to bring to our attention. My mom has been seeing her for years, and she makes it a delight to come to the doctor for a visit. We highly recommend her.

Dr. Furlong is an AMAZING physician. She is compassionate, kind, and patient. She provides a quality of care that is unmatched by any other experience that I have had. Dr. Furlong makes herself available and really maintains a present with her patients through the entirity of her care. She is both knowledgeable and thorough. With every appointment, she was warm and inviting. Her energy helps to put you at ease despite the overwhelming feelings you might have over the medical condition for which you are being treated. The staff are just as pleasant and inviting. In this world of constant movement and everything rush, It is refreshing to have someone (especially a physician) slow her pace to provide quality care, compassion, and genuine concern for each patient she encounters as if you are her only priority. Again, Dr. Furlong is an amazing physician with an exemplary staff and I am all the better after having met and been treated by them. I am eternally grateful and appreciative.
