My needs were definitely understood and accommodated. Communication was great. When I wasn't feeling well when leaving after my appointment, reception staff immediately responded and provided assistance.

Visit was prompt and I wasn't kept waiting. Dr. Furukawa was great and referred me to another provider that will likely help me with issues I'm having.

My doctor told me that I didn't need to have my IUD removed, which was great news for me because I really didn't want to have it removed

Doctor is personal and professional. She is always prepared for appointments with knowledge of medical/family history and takes the time to review all patient needs.I have recommended her to family and friends who also now utilize her.

The only current downside to my visit(s) is that while my provider is covered in network by insurance - the lab where all my bloodwork goes is not. I feel Legacy should consider having the lab accept same insurance.

I think it'd be helpful to have less of the patient summary notes each visit dedicated to breast feeding (it feels like your office is shaming those who don't/can't breastfeed) and child care centers in our area have 9 mo. + wait lists - you should encourage women to think about their child care plan now, before the baby arrives, & get on several wait lists (some centers have closed so multiple lists is a safer option).

I was extremely surprised how professional was this provider. She is the person you want to see every time. Trustful, attentive and professional. Open to discuss any concerns you have and willing to advice you taking in account also your preferences.

Dr. Furukawa cares, is patient, listens, and explains things so that I can understand. The reception staff is excellent and welcoming! I just wish the wait time in the lobby wasn't long.

After being nervous and trying to read different reviews to decide which provider I wanted to see, I was relieved and very happy with my first visit to a gynecologist with Dr. Furukawa and her team! She was very sensitive, informative, and didn't make me feel embarrassed with a somewhat uncommon issue. I felt she had a good bedside manner.
