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.

Dr. Furlong is amazing! I hated going to the gynecologist. Because of Dr. Molina I am not shy or scared to get checked out Dr. Molina and staff are great!

I have been to other Uro gynecologists and Gynecologists, it can be embarrassing and frightening. I felt that Dr. Furlong put me at ease and made it easy to make the best decisions for myself. Very informative.

Dr. Furlong is by far the best gynecologist I've ever seen. She made sure to be very thorough in her exam and found the root of my problems I was having that no other doctors were able to figure out. She is also very kind and makes you feel very comfortable the whole appointment, she truly cares about her patients. I highly recommend her services!

I highly recommend Dr. Furlong!!! Dr. Furlong makes you feel welcome in her office. She creates a safe environment for you to express your feelings and concerns. I used to hate going to the gynecologist but with Dr. FURLON it's not that scary. She answers all my questions and provides me with useful information based on my medical needs. Dr. Furlong is very caring, funny, and empathetic. She has a great sense of humor and is very understanding. If your looking for a gyno she's the one!

Dr. Furlong was rude, condescending, and full of herself. I would never return to her again in a million years. There are plenty of other wonderful doctors out there. Dr. Furlong is not one of them.

Dr. Furlong is such a professional and compassionate doctor. I’ve been going to her office for I think 3yrs now and wish I had known about her before. I always feel comfortable when I visit her. And I love that she personally contacts me with any results.

I had major prolapse issues that Dr Furlong addressed with very thorough explanation and patience with my many questions. She gave me options and allowed me to choose the best option for me and performed surgery on Dec.13. Gave cell number which I’ve used several times and received a quick response to my concerns. Dr Furlong has put my mind at ease on several occasions with her calming and caring approach. I highly recommend her for all women’s health issues and will continue to see her.

Referred by primary Dr. Had prolapse concerns. At initial appt, Dr Furlong explained my options & at first I didn't opt for surgery, but after prayer & some soul searching, decided surgery w/b my best option. So thankful I did. Dr Furlong is truly a miracle worker & would recommend her to anyone who requires reconstruction of the female organs. Thank you Dr Furlong for everything.

Dr. Furlong is an excellent physician. I first met her when she was an OB/GYN 11 years ago and she has been my Women's Health physician ever since. Then I took my mom to her for an urinary incontinence problem. My mom was very please with her results. Dr. Furlong is an extraordinary doctor that has a great bedside manner. She is kind, compassionate and always takes the time to explain everything and answers all of YOUR questions. I highly recommend her.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. She seems to project her personal issues onto her patients. She under minded me and completely invalidated me as patient. She was speaking extremely loud, I am positive everyone on the floor heard our conversation. She spent more time talking about her life rather than focusing on me. Very unprofessional. She prescribed me medicine without explaining how it would work. Her attitude was very much like "im the doctor i know everything" you know nothing

I have been to offices of many urologists and I have also tried all the medications available to treat my condition. When I started seeing Dr. Furlong, she went above and beyond and researched the best treatment for me. Finally, I've been relieved from one of the negative symptoms of my condition, Thanks to Dr. Furlong! She truly cares for her patients and I will not hesitate to recommend her in a heartbeat!
