Care Philosophy

I believe in patient-centered care. I am committed to partnering with you to deliver safe and compassionate care in a comfortable environment.

I will work closely with you to create a personal care plan that meets your needs and utilizes the depth of my training to effectively deliver high quality care.

Every effort is made to collaborate with the primary care physician to minimize multiple doctor trips.Read more

Dr Ferguson is compassionate, brilliant, and listens to you. He does what's right for the patient. I had a problem with my cartilage in my knee. He went over all options and I decided to have the injections into my knee. Approximately 6 years later, I still feel Great. Thank you Dr. Ferguson.
