Dr Furman operated on both of my hips (not simultaneously) and I am a new person as a result of his precise, caring, skilled surgery. He is a kind and ;helpful person, and I would recommend him very highly for consult if you want an honest opinion on anything orthopedic.

I have seen Dr Furman twice for my right knee due to osteoarthritis. He is an ace at giving cortisone shots! He is very personable & informative. He has same day appointments which was a blessing for me. He will be honest with you that if he recommends a procedure & he is not to perform it, he will refer to another physician. I would highly recommend him to my family & friends.
