Dr. Ferris is the consummate professional in her specialty as an Orthopedic Surgeon. Her examinations are through and concise based on X-rays, MRI, physical examination as well as her experience in her Specialty! She has taken care of both of my knees and performed a Hemi Orthoplasti on my shoulder which I needed badly. With my work as a Painting contractor I needed the procedures done correctly so that I could return to my business fully recovered and not have to worry about my injury return
