Note: Although Healthgrades has Dr. Furst listed under the category of sleep medicine, his practice is otolaryngology. My review has to do with Dr. Furst's business practices. I returned hearing aids on 8/19/21, ordered less expensive ones, and was due a $1,700 refund at that time. Dr. Furst would not credit the credit card I used to pay for the original hearing aids for the $1,700 due (according to his staff) because he didn't want to pay the credit card fee. He would only pay with a check from his home office and thus couldn't pay me that day. I went back to his office to pick up the less expensive replacement hearing aids on 8/19/21 and again asked for my refund. This time I was told that Dr. Furst's home printer was not working, and somehow that prevented him from having my refund check ready. I finally got a call that my refund check was ready to be picked up on 8/30/21 - 11 days after I was due to get my refund.

Choosing a doctor based on doing your homework and searching the net could be disappointing. This time, I went to Dr. Furst as my GP recommended and I am glad I did! The office is simple and clean, it is unassuming and not in a flashy building. The receptionist was polite and cordial. I waited about 15 minutes. Dr. Furst came into the exam room with a smile, shook our hands, asked about what brought me there; he listened intently, took notes, ask me very thorough questions, told me what he thought my problem was, went to his office to review the imaging himself, returned and confirmed his diagnosis, and used pictures to explain what is happening in my throat. He called for a prescription, told me what the medicine does, answered my Qs about side effects, laid out the time line for seeing progress. I was VERY happy with the visit, and I left his office feeling better and more assured than when I went there. I highly recommend Dr. Furst who provides a genuinely caring service.

Am recovering from surgical excision of a benign tumor in my neck. Dr. Furst laid out all the information from start to finish. All is going just as he said. Another great doc who treats you like a person.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Furst for many years. He has performed surgery on my husband after his nose was broken in a swimming accident, he has repaired a ruptured ear drum for me and tended to many other more minor situations over the years. He is extremely competent and gentle and always takes time to explain the situation.
