Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Fuhrman was warm, personable, and knowledgeable. My visit was a really positive experience!
I think Dr. Fuhrman and the woman who first saw me were both very nice and professional. The woman at the check in also very nice and professional. There was a really long wait time though, which I found frustrating. I expected this to be a pretty short visit but I was in the office for about an hour and 20 minutes most of which was just sitting in the waiting room or getting shuffled around from room to room in back.
She is very kind and accurate. All the staff is very prepared.
The staff and doctor were friendly, polite and respectful. The wait time was short and the Vista went smoothly and did not take long. The doctor was knowledgeable about my condition and explained it well.
I loved the way Dr. Fuhrman took care of an elderly patient before me. She was thoughtful and patient and since I am approaching that age I am always looking for someone who can listen. She has good communication skills. I enjoyed my visit and she reduced my fears.

I liked Dr. Fuhrman. She was thorough, explained things clearly, and friendly. I did not like being kept waiting for over thirty minutes. Especially given that I had asked if the doctor was on schedule and told yes, and no one came out to let me know there was a hold up. Also problematic: 1) when I inquired after 30 minutes whether someone at the front desk could check what the hold up was, I was kinda dismissed (though in a friendly way), and when I got frustrated, got the "ohh a difficult person" smile and "don't worry just wait a little more" but still basically ignoring my request that they check and find out what the holdup was and how much longer it would be. 2) then when someone came out a couple minutes after that (35 mins after my app't time), a sort of coldness and "what are you complaining about attitude", and finally an explanation that there had been an unavoidable medical issue that took longer than expected. I have no problem with that - I, myself have run late for appointments due to unforeseeable emergencies, but it's customary to let someone know rather than to just let them sit and wait, or at least to explain if they inquire about what is delaying their being seen. 3) When I took this up with the doctor herself once she finally saw me, she indicated that she had no control of this issue, that she has no mechanism for overseeing the front desk or any system of informing patients when there is an unavoidable holdup, and implied that it's a clinic in Harlem for poor people, so unfortunately that is how it is. Even in a clinic, I would expect to have my time respected and to be informed of any unavoidable holdup so I can either continue to wait patiently or reschedule. As I told the staff, I had patients of my own to see later in the morning, in my own office at the other end of town, and I needed to know how much longer the wait would be. It was unfortunate to have my request for this responded to in the way it was.
She gave great insight and advice! She was so knowledgable and patient and answered all my questions. I highly recommend her.
Her assistant was quick and efficient and the doctor was patient and answered all my question. Highly recommend.
YAAASS kween. she was also familiar with and confident about herpes of the cornea, which has been such a big, terrible thing in my life. she listened to my concerns for real and offered solutions & explanations for everything. like, she said that if i needes help when she was off, she knew a cornea specialist who could help me then. (since hospitals do not know how to help this it seems, and pharmacies do not keep the emergency medicine for this in stock.) had a pretty great time! for someone dying inside from eye herpes!
