Fortunately, I joined Dr Furman's practice a year ago. Due to a plethora of autoimmune illnesses, when experiencing an acute flare, I was bewildered concerning whom I should contact for my current condition.

from Ronald in NC February 6, 2014 for Jeffrey W. Furman, MD

I have been a long-term patient with. He was always a superb doctor, but his change to MDVIP enhanced the doctor/patient relationship.

I attribute my continued good health to a significant degree to the thoroughness of the annual physical, the time he has and takes to discuss the implications of… See more
