This was simply a meet and greet appointment. I am expecting and looking for a Family Care Provider that can do pediatrics. Dr. Furrow was very pleasant and I am confident she will take good care of my new baby and family.

Did not wait too long in lobby, however, waited about 30 minutes or so in the exam room. [...] I had a written list of concerns for my PCP, however, she started typing up her eval and recommendations and I felt rushed out before I was past 3/4's of my written list. At that time, I was too tired from work, waiting so long, and too hungry to protest. I'm dissapointed that all of my issues were not addressed. We will do better next time?

Love Dr. Furrow and her nurse! Dr. Furrow was extremely thorough and patient! Loved how she answered all my questions that I had about current and future health. I came to her because my husband has her for his primary physician and I have already recommended her to others.

This was my second visit to this provider, the first time was 6 months ago. I have hypertension, take routine medications and see a provider regularly. After this visit, I feel much more confident with Dr. Furrow and understand better how she interacts with a patient. She did have a medical student with her this time, so he spent more time with me than she did. However, I understand the need for that.

When I first saw Dr. Furrow, she seemed to be in a hurry, which I thought was being busy with taking on Dr. [...]'s patients (me being one) and seeing new patients at the same time. With this visit, she was still in a hurry. She came to the waiting room to get me, it seems she was double booked. If that is how the office is going to be run from now on, it's disappointing. [...]

Dr. Furrow is the finest most concerned about me of any dr. I have ever seen in the Providence group. She made me feel good and took away the stress of the previous dr. had me under. I am so happy to have her as my new primary doctor. I hope she will also take my husband as a primary doctor for him.

Let me know she was very busy, behind, and made me feel like I was being shoved out the door. A routine yet important lab wasnt ordered with my other ones, so my thyroid wasnt delt with. Some questions I had I didnt even ask. Since then I have had other negative experiences with this office.

Too great a hurry to move me through and get to her next patient. I felt like she way over booked. Quick to prescribe meds without ant consul or alternative approach. I felt like she and the nurse were totally swapped and it was only 8 in the morning!

Care from the providers has always been good. [...] the nurses are great. The prompt response to my chart is great. [...] With Dr Furrow my only hope would be that she could also suggest some natural solutions along with or instead of jumping to prescription right away. [...] But overall liked her well and I did email with my chart and she was prompt and friendly responding. I will continue to see her and she also made sure I knew she would do fit ins if I was ill.
