This was originally to be my annual 'wellness exam' but because this was my first visit with *Dr. Furlong he suggested we use it as a get-acquainted visit and have the wellness appointment later. I agreed & this went well.

Dr. Furlong appears to be a great, compassionate, caring doctor; however, in three annual checkups he has been late at least 30 minutes for each appointment. Lucky for Virginia Mason, I feel his care is worth the wait.

Dr. Furlong is the best physician I have ever encountered as a patient. He not only is extremely experienced, but takes the time to understand underlying issues. He takes good notes, and we always discuss changes from one visit to the next. I value his advice. He always discusses alternatives, and makes sound recommendations based on his knowledge of both medicine and the patient. I would recommend him to anyone
