Dr. Furrow is excellent. She has always responded immediately to any reasons I come into the clinic. She also refers me to specialists when needed and orders the tests I need immediately. I couldn't feel more assured with all the staff and services at Grant Creek Clinic.

Dr. Furrow was very stand offish like I was disease or something I was very sick and possible had the flu! Thank goodness the rapid flu test came back negative however Dr. Furrow did not go over anything after the test was negative! She even walked to the room standing in the hall way handed me my after visit summary and said not a word and walked away. I left the office feeling horrible the way I was treated.

love dr. furrow but the 5 min appointment cancellation is ridiculous especially since you don't offer evening hours. I work full time and my husband works full time. I was rushing to make my appointment after my husband left work early to watch our 2 kids and I got stuck in traffic. I called to say I was going to be about 10 min late and they were about to just cancel my appointment!! after I had to make so many arrrangements to get there by 4!! I went anyway and was 8 minutes late ... luckily my Dr let me come have my appointment still. absolutely ridiculous. this should not be a policy what's so ever: especially since I've never been late before. instead, if someone is repeatedly late then after a few warnings tell them they need to find another provider. just don't cancel my appointment that I already waited a couple weeks for and my husband had to leave work early for! for being only 8 minutes late?! ridiculous. maybe try having one day a week where doctors come in later but work later so it's easier for people to come after work when it's a non emergency medical problem they need to be seen for.

I've been seeing Dr. Furrow for a few years and she's very easy to talk to, and expressed concern for my overall health. Though she was busy, she did not make the appointment feel rushed.

I felt like my doctor was rushed. Like she had too many other patients to see at the same time zipping in and out of my room. Not really allowing me to fully address my concerns. Ready to walk out the door before I voiced all my concerns. It was a bit disappointing and not like my last appointment with her.

On previous visit provider appeared rushed. This visit was in early A.M. and provider spent more time listening and explaining. Provider relatively new to client so both still establishing rapport.

Special doctor that has a heart for others. She shows so much concern and very polite, caring person. Takes time to hear your needs and understands what you say. The best doctor i have ever had. So thankful for her because I am not afraid to ask her anything. She cares about me I feel.

I felt my doctor treats me like an addict and can't listen to what my needs are when she is so focused/ accusing me of being an addicted when I was being medicated improperly. She did give me a referral to see someone who does specialize more in my condition. When I travel it's been hard to get an early refill without being treated like an addicted which makes traveling to see my family who all live outside of Montana. It's hard to get her to understand my needs without being judged too. I don't like having to try to prove to my care provider that I'm telling the truth, it makes me feel super uncomfortable.
