This doctor is all ego....borderline senile, He ordered tests on my daughter...interpreted them as a surgical emergency, I cant be responsible for you he told her" I called him as my daughter called me upset...He used the technique Do you know who I am, to whom younare talking to" He did not feel any obligation to my daughter , twisted the story to fit his rationalization which was anti the Hippocratic Oath When she went to gynocologist she was told it was a normal finding

I initially saw Dr., Futterweit for a consultation. As a result of how positive the experience was, I have seen Dr. Futterweit every three months for the past 11-12 years. He is a valued source of medical care to me. He and his staff have been an integral support to my overall physical health. He takes time to listen, and maintain an open dialogue regarding my care. I have relied heavily on his sage advice and he has educated me regarding all of my medical conditions and advocates for my care.

Dr. Futterweit is a scam. He charge thousands of dollars to those who he feels are desperate for his advise. In the meantime, he does not prescribe the medicine in the right way. The pharmacist had to tell me that there is no slow release Glucophage... how did he not know this... Im sure im not the first with PCOS. He took total advantage of my situation and charged me $2,000 for his visit with he does not take Medical Insurance.... Upon taking the Glulcophage (not slow release) DONT USE HI
