Dr. Jeffrey Furman is hands-down the best physician I have seen in my adult life. He takes an interest in both my physical and mental well-being and gives me frank and honest assessments of my health. I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and he recommended a local breast cancer center with excellent physicians who will provide me with care through my treatment. I appreciate having Dr… See more

from Janet in NC March 3, 2018 for Jeffrey W. Furman, MD

I've had the luck to have had Dr. Jeffrey Furman for my physician for over 30 years. When you're with him, you are his sole attention. You never have to wait and your visit is never rushed. He takes all the time needed for whatever your reason for being there is. He's a very kind, gentle and wonderful man and I hope I die before he retires! P.S. His nurses are great also!
