What People Say About Dr. Robert Furr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I feel the same as the previous poster. I have been with Dr. Furr over 6 years and no longer feel that he cares about my health since I currently don't require surgery. The nurse practitioners are very nice ladies and can help with minor problems but there are times when you really want to discuss a problem with your true Dr. The only way to see him anymore is to get passed his Np's when they deem it necessary which they won't do. I understand he has a large surgical load but making those of us that have been with him for years feel like a pain to deal with is hurtful. Unfortunately since my situation is getting worse and he refuses to see me, I am forced to find another Dr. Hopefully one that actually seems to care about "regular" patients.

Dr. Furr saved my life and I will always respect this amazing man! When I went to him I had seen over 20 doctors and was about to give up on life. He's always made sure to treat me with love and kindness! I refer everyone to him.

I went to Dr. Furr for endometriosis excision surgery. Since my surgery my symptoms are much worse and everytime I contact his office for advice I am told that I need to track my ovulation and go see a gastroenterologist for my issues. I understand missing some endometriosis during surgery but the lack of follow up and concern after a failed surgery is dissapointed to say the least.

I was really impressed with Dr. Furr at my first visit. I scheduled my hysterectomy and rectocele repair with him. My surgery was a NIGHTMARE!!! I was sent home with a bladder not working without my knowledge. I was rushed back in severe pain 2 days later. They drained 2.5 liters of urine off my bladder. I now have the effects of bladder damage from this surgery and I'm so screwed up with my bowels too! It's been almost a year and I'm in horrible pain everyday! He will take no blame. Stay away!!

I worked with doctors for 20 years and was literally butchered by 2 doctors who I trusted and were well known to me. By the time I finally let someone look at me again I had bladder mesh growing out of me. I am a Vet so I had to go throu the VA. GOD sent me to Dr. Furr...that is the only way I can explain it. He not only fixed me, but completely reversed the affects from these bad bladder surgeries during one surgery. Thank GOD for Dr. Furr and thank GOD he takes Vets because most of them won't.

I was so pleased with Dr Furr on my initial visit... even wrote a great 5 star review. He prescribed a highly potent steroid to use for way too long. It burnt my genital area. Pain! When I called they called back 24 hrs later. Wanted a pap??? I just did! The RN said "oh". Another 24 hrs before getting back to me. Dr Furr wanted a biopsy??? I just had one at my last visit! With the weekend I waited 3 days for a response to come in. Really??? They said I had shingles? WOW! The test came back neg.

The absolute best surgery experience I have ever had. Dr Furr is one of the best surgeons. Very thorough,knowledgeable and his post op note coming from a nurse and nurse auditory is one of the best I've seen. He had to perform two other procedures during the cystocele and rectocele that has really improved my over all well being. I would highly recommend him and his staff.

Before my Dr left Chattanooga he referred me to Dr Furr. I honestly didn't think another dr could compare to mine. It's been 4 years now and I am so completely happy with Dr Furr. He and his awesome staff (Faith) always have answers to my sometimes not so smart questions. I would recommend him and his staff over anyone else in the area!

Dr Furr is the most intelligent person I've ever met regarding the medical/gynecological needs of a woman. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my health needs. Outstanding dr, outstanding bedside manner, outstanding man! Chattanooga is blessed to have him!

Dr. Furr is hands down the best doctor I have ever seen. He genuinely cares about the big picture and you as a patient. His NP Honiko and MA Faith were able to calm my nerves and answer all of my questions after having a not so pleasant experience at another Urologist's office. Faith is very down to earth and makes my sometimes weekly appointments as enjoyable as possible! I would recommend
