Richard Furlong MD has been my primary care physician for over 20 years. He's the main reason I'm willing to travel from Bellevue to Kirkland for primary care. I'm hoping his practice outlives me.

*Dr. Furlong is patient, listens well, and gives you confidence in your visit.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
He was a good good doctor and I see him as a director of a facility, but I just really believe that some sensitivity training could be used as far as what to write in reports. It was obvious he looked at me as wanting pain meds. That was not true at all. Just to have that in my record really bothers me that "I would not be a good candidate for more pain meds" I had a burning mouth from unknown sores, I wanted a lidocaine.
