Yes, I will recommend him. He gave me information of what I expected to know regarding the pre/post-op procedure. The surgical staff very kind and they check/see to it you're comfortable.
in Cranford, NJ |
Today I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy with Dr. Michael A. Fuhrman. All of the nurses, anesthesiologist, and Dr. Fuhrman were friendly and efficient. I felt as if i were in competent hands. Both procedures were done leaving me with no discomfort. Before I knew it I was coming out of anesthesia and was having coffee and Lorna Doone cookies. I would highly recommend Dr. Michael Fuhrman and his facility Gastro Surgi Center of New Jersey.

I was pleased with the whole process. Right from visiting the doctor at his office, setting the procedure date, and going through the procedure. Everyone was caring, and pleasant. No complaints.

It's was wonderful
in Westfield, NJ |
I've been seeing Dr. Furhman for many years now and he is very pleasant, doesn't push unnecessary tests and when he does do the tests (e.g., colonoscopy and endoscopy), he is obviously qualified, but also importantly, is very thoughtful with his post-procedure comments/conversations with the patient. I would highly recommend him if you're looking for a gastroenterologist.
