Do not go-- you will be wasting your time. She adds wrong diagnoses and performs unnecessary testing to increase the bill to your insurance. She is not competent and does not care about her patients. The worst doctor I've visited in my lifetime.

I called in advance to confirm Fuhrman took straight Medicaid, which was confirmed by whomever answered her office phone, appt scheduled. I took the 1 1/2 hour subway trip and was promptly told by the snooty woman at the desk Furhman does not take straight Medicaid and we won't accept your Medicaid # anyway, without a card. NY St of Health says all docs are required to accept the number, as it can be confirmed. Fuhrman may be great, but her support staff is THE PITs. Another failure!@!!
