Awesome Doctor, very nice and explained everything very well, the key word is comfortable and that I was. It's so nice to found a Doctor like Dr. Furlin. Very happy with my visit.. Thank You Dr. Furlin and the staff....

Dr. Furlin was my primary doctor throughout my pregnancy. I found him to be professional and courteous. At every visit he was patient and informative. Most times appointments were running a bit behind, but that could be because Dr. Furlin is very thorough with his patients. I was a high risk patient and had to have my child via C-section. I feel parents need to have questions for the doctor as he was very resourceful in helping me to feel at ease during childbirth. He's an excellent Doctor.
The doctor is amazing however the staff members are inconsiderate and rude. The front desk receptionist has an attitude and there are more than 3-4 people working there but everyone is doing their own thing and dont pay attention to patients waiting to ask a question or fill out forms. The appointments go by first come first serve regardless of your actual appointment time. He is a pleasant and knowledgable doctor and should hire better staff.

Horrible experience. Dr was very negligent to my condition. I lost a baby, that could've been prevented but because of Dr's negligence condition got worse.
