Dr. Furman is a very prepared and ready doctor, like a soldier.

from Eric in NC March 6, 2018 for Jeffrey W. Furman, MD

It is difficult to know how to express in words my and my wife's gratitude for all of the help, support, and kindness that Dr. Jeffery Furman and his staff have given us over the last 27 years. He has always been willing to go the extra mile to provide outstanding medical care and advice, and to counsel us as we face life's challenges and milestones. Recently, my father's… See more

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!

from Brian in NC February 28, 2018 for Jeffrey W. Furman, MD

Dr. Furman has served as the doctor to our entire family of five for over 27 years. He has also assisted with the healthcare of an elderly parent and other visitors who have fallen sick while in NC. He can best be described as a caring human being who just happens to be a doctor.

We feel extremely lucky to have this dedicated, passionate, calm, and readily available person to be our… See more

I have been a patient of Dr Furmans for as long as he has been with your company. I have nothing but praise for him. He is easy to talk to, takes as much time as is warranted at each visit. Understands, and for the most part works with my particular foibles!

He is. My favorite doctor.

from Wendy March 31, 2017 for Jeffrey W. Furman, MD

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. Having seen several specialists for my potpourri of maladies, as expected, the specialist was never available in a time of crisis due to the needs of those with appointments.… See more
