      Cancelled all my prescriptions for my heart medications for no known reason and wouldn't renew them. When I was having heart complications, I was told that I couldn't see a doctor there for 3 months, when they had the next opening. At one point the nurse told me to double my dosage of one of my medications, but didn't bother to send a new prescription to the pharmacy with the new prescription amount. I would not recommend Aspirus to anyone.

      Dr Furda is an excellent doctor that knows his business, he’s a caring doctor that listens to what you say or ask and is always willing to take time with his patients. He is very easy to talk with and very understanding and knowledgeable of your needs. He answers all questions in a way that you always understand. He is one of the most caring, understanding, knowledgeable doctors I’ve had the pleasure of being a patient of.

      Up until December 31st of 2016, Dr. Furda had been my cardiologist for about 10 years. Unfortunately, due to the rising cost of my health insurance(increased over 50%)I was forced to go with a different health insurance that Dr. Furda was not a part of my provider network. I have nothing but high praise for this man and would recommend him to any and all cardiac patients. Sorry to have to leave him.
