Dr. Ferguson is an excellent surgeon. I'm alive because of him.
in Coffeeville, MS |
My mother was recently admitted to NMMC after suffering a heart attack in February 2016. She was treated by Dr. Edward Ferguson and received excellent care. She required bypass surgery and aortic valve replacement immediately and this surgery was preformed by Dr. Ferguson . She received exceptional care from Dr. Ferguson and the staff of North MS Medical Center and is now back home with her family. Dr. Edward Ferguson saved my mother's life and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

5-Years Ago (11 February 2011) ? Dr. Ferguson Jr. while in Gadsden Alabama spent 10-hours giving me new plumbing to restore blood flow to both my legs due to blockage. Dr. Ferguson and Staff never gave up even when unexpected complications happened. I got my mobility back and more time with my 3 Sons.
