Ratings for Dr. Lynette M. Furukawa
Dr Furukawa was the no nonsense knowledgeable real world Doctor I needed having not been to an OBGYN for 17 years. She made it clear from the get go that I needed to be serious about my health or I should seek "help" elsewhere. A visit later, she ushered me into her back office and with compassion, a genuinely concerned face and lowered voice, that I had advanced breast cancer. So Sad, and auwe for those that want something else in a good Dr....
I took abuse from Dr Furukawa for at least 20 years, don't know why. The first time she gave me an internal pelvic she was horrible telling me that I wasn't relaxed enough. I overlooked it because I thought it was her raging hormones (she was pregnant at the time). The second time she was rude to a few years later, again very condescending and she scolded me for not taking any notes or writing anything she was saying down. Excuse me, I thought the MD ws supposed to do that. This last visit was the final straw--she asked me the dosage of my medication and I just flat out couldn't remember. So she said to me in a very supercilious manner: "you're just guessing and I don't have time for this!" Literally spat it out at me. Believe me, won't be back there again. Would rate her a zero for bedside manner and told her so.
Staff not friendly. My appointment time was 2pm. I arrived at 1:55pm. MD arrived at exam room 2:43pm. Very straight up about not having enough time with you (I'm curious because no one else was in the waiting room). Terrible bedside manner. Very condescending. I inquired about an OB/GYN matter not related to why I saw the doctor and she told me to "look it up, it's not your problem right now and I don't have time to go over something with you that you can find on the internet". Definitely not seeing her again and do not recommend this doctor.
