      Dr. Furr jumped to conclusions too fast without having all of the information. The nurse/nurses who handle her calls are completely incompetent and they do not take messages very well. I had a question for Dr. Furr and instead of her helping me, she was just too busy, and didn't give me the time of day. If you are looking for a long term doctor, I could not recommend Dr. Furr. I felt belittled, less than because of how I was treated by her and her staff. I don't have any respect for her.

      Dr. Furr seemed to care and listen, but when I was faced with many different ailments going on, between her and her staff, they were very condescending. I think that Dr. Furr would be better served with better nurses who handle her patients' calls and communicates them to her. Many times, what I said to the nurses, were different than what they communicated to her. Unfortunately, I saw a different and unfriendly side of Dr. Furr, when she took what the nurse's said over what I had said.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
