Really great, very professional, did something to my ear that immediately alleviated symptoms I was having and prescribed some drops as well - my only issue was that my insurance didn't cover them and they were super pricey - but Icalled the office back and they recommended an alternative that worked fine.

This was my first visit to Dr Furr and I was very pleased with his office staff and him. The appointment was a referral that had requested immediate attention. The office that I was originally referred to would not accept thereferral since they didn't accept my insurance provider. So I was extremely pleased with the speed in which an appointment was made by his office. Dr. Furr was very professional and he reduced my anxiety over the injury that I had. The exam seemed very complete and he discussed different options for consideration. I would definitely refer him to others.

I was prescribed a steroid which cleared up the problem, but it recurred as soon as I stopped taking them. Had to get another prescription, vicious cycle of steroids, didnt get the result I had hoped for, no recommendation for allergist, etc.

Previously I saw 2 other ENT doctors . Dr Furr examined me more thoroughly and explained more about what he was doing and why . He made sure I understood everything. He also let me explain what symptoms I was experiencingand really listened. I also found his humor to be the best that I have ever experienced.

Everyone in the office was nice. The office staff and doctor were young and seemed fun. I felt immediately comfortable. For an early morning appt before work, I was happy to be seen right away and wasn't made to wait longby the doctor. Really liked that the doctor asked me lots of questions. After a tortured month of feeling like I had water in my ear, the doctor was able to determine that the cause was actually a piece of blue fuzz (probably from QTips) stuck in my ear, rubbing on my ear drum. He was able to quickly pull it out and voila! Cured! A weird and funny appt for sure.
