Dr. Furman is excellent and was able to diagnose and effectively treat a severe vestibular issue that no other doctor was able to figure out. I suffered for many years prior to seeing Dr. Furman, and am grateful to him for being so thorough and effective in his diagnosis and successful treatment. He is also personable and caring. I would highly recommend him.

Brilliant, comprehensive testing on hearing and balance and a very professional doctor who will take the time to address any questions you have while in the office with him. The staff is incredibly nice and the rest of the staff who do the actual testing are very nice, comforting, and explain what's happening every step of the way. Highly recommend this office!!! Spent four hours there and I have not one complaint.
