Jeffrey W. Furman, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to provide personalized and attentive care to all of my patients. By emphasizing wellness and disease prevention, I strive to enhance each patient's quality of life and become a "partner" in their goal of achieving and maintaining good health. I believe that state-of-the art education and technology, compassionate care and a comfortable friendly environment where people feel confident they are being heard and helped, all combine to create the type of personalized medical care that will keep my patients happy and healthy.
