I used to see Dr. Furlin for my own health reasons, and i was very comfortable with him so when my daughter became pregnant I referred her to him right away. A decision I would come to regret. After the premature delivery of the baby my daughter was very ill, 3 trips to his office an the ER an he kept sending her home saying it would pass. due to his negligence she ended up in the hospital nearly bleeding to death. D&C needed an blood transfusion given. If we listened my daughter would be dead

I couldn't be more grateful to Dr Furlin for taking such good care of me. I had a c section 4 weeks before due date and he was fantastic. His positive attitude is very reassuring and he backs it up with excellent care. I will be his patient for as long as he's practicing in Illinois.

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.
