We saw Dr. Furlan when he happened to be on duty in the Pediatrics After Hours at Dallas. Our first impression on him was fine. He seemed knowledgeable, and friendly to kids. Just a little bit impatient to our questions. However, he asked us to get some OTC Neosporin ointment to apply to my 5-year-old son's eye. He also friendly wrote down the name of this ointment to help us find it. In the drug store, I learned that Neosporin clearly was not for eyes! Only the prescription Neosporin Ophthalmic ointment can be used on eyes - but that one clearly says "not for children". The second day, I called my son's pediatrician, who then refused to use Neosporin to my son's eye and, in stead, prescribed a different eye drop for my son. During this process, the pharmacist and nurses that I contacted were all surprised to learn that I was told to give Neosporin to a child's eyes. This seems a basic knowledge to a pediatrician, which Dr. Furlan did not even know about. Doctors do make mistakes from time to time, which I understand. But, it should not be such kind of stupid mistakes. I seriously doubt the qualification of Dr. Scott Furlan as a pediatrician.
