Hi,

Does anyone see Dr. Furst? I just found out he'll be speaking in Colorado. I am really looking forward to it, but it's not until October.

Hi Jennifer, I have seen Dr. Furst, when I lived in California. He is such a great doctor and person. I thought I heard somewhere, that Dr. Furst was thinking about moving back to Seattle. I sure hope he does, because I would definately go to him. It is so worth it to go and see him. Good luck to you and have a great time.

Hi Jennifer,

 

A woman in my divorce support group recently told me about Dr. Furst. She has a friend with sclero who has seen him. I didn't know he was from Seattle. I hope he moves back here too!

 

Go listen to him speak!

A woman I know of says that Dr. Furst saved her life.

 

I spoke with him once regarding stem cell transplantation (which I had for Lymphoma). He recommended a major clinic in Seattle (Sloan Kettering?) for sc transplantation for scleroderma.

 

He is locally recognized as tops in southern California - with his clinic at UCLA being one of the top Scleroderma clinics in the country.

We are from Utah and took my son to see Dr. Furst last fall. My son is 17 and had been diagnosed with scleroderma in April, 2006. Dr. Furst was wonderful. He starts his day at 4:00 a.m. Our appointment was at 7:00 a.m. He verified everything our local rheumatologist had told us and lowered my son's dose of methotrexate since it made him sick occasionally. Dr. Furst said that half the dose of MTX would do just as much for my son, and it has. It gave me a good deal of confidence in what we were doing, and my son is doing very well.
