This place is a joke! The facility is a disgrace as they do not properly maintain it. The staff (I mean everyone) has an attitude for no reason. If you try calling them, they will place you on hold and never return. In addition, they are rude, they do not care about your well being. There are honestly no words to describe this place. I was terrified when I first came here and clients would come in very upset and they lady shuts the glass door. Do not say you have not been warned!

Shortly after moving to Fredericksburg we chose Dr. Ferguson as our primary care physician. Months later my husband became seriously ill with a complicated medical condition. Since then we have come to appreciate the competence, compassion and time afforded us by this very dedicated man and his cheerful staff. If you want a fancy office do not go to Dr. Ferguson. If you want exceptional medical care this is the doctor to see.

I would recommend Dr. Ferguson to anyone looking for a doctor that has the combination of intelligence, compassion, and the unique skill of listening. He stays up to date on the latest in preventative therapies as well as restorative/prescriptive therapies. He takes the time to listen to your symptoms and never makes you feel as if they are "all in your head". He is excellent at providing that integrative approach when you are seeing multiple doctors for multiple problems. Excellent doctor!

Dr. Ferguson is the best doctor I used for primary care. Others here have sung his praises, and I concur. I would trust his judgement in a hot minute. However, his staff has been mediocre-to-terrible for several years now. Presently--Dec 2016--they are hovering at incompetent. I believe they don't know they work for a doctor! You are VERY lucky to get them on the phone. If you get their message, hang up; you are wasting your time. The OGM has no choices. Don't expect a call back.

Horrible doctors office! Was there for 4 hours to be seen for a problem and a physical. Was told to go get blood work done, after 2 weeks and not hearing anything I called, it took 2 days to get a call back. Tried having my records transferred is been several weeks and that still hasn't been done. Now they won't even return my call. Went to another doctor and still this place won't send my blood results. The nurse practitioner had no clue what she was doing. She was on Google for my diagnosis.

Dr. Ferguson is an awesome doctor who you can share your health issues with and it's like seeing a friend... you feel very comfortable with him. He listens and takes action to help whatever you're going through. The only issue I have is that his staff leaves a lot to be desired. They don't respond to voicemails left, they don't return calls, often they don't call in prescriptions to your pharmacy, or they let the phone go unanswered often. Overall, Dr. Ferguson makes it worth going to him.

He is very qualified and listens to what you say. Always answers questions and really looks for answers to problems. Sometimes wait is long but because he is with patients doing his work. He can refer to specialists when necessary; does a good job of organizing plan for treatment. Office staff is pleasant but is not overly efficient. Perhaps more supervision by office manager would help.

Dr. Ferguson is a fine doctor - very caring and thorough. However his staff and office is lacking in every way. I could not possibly refer anyone to his office for those reasons alone. I like what someone else wrote about them - a hot mess accurately describes the office staff!

My husband and I have been going here since 2008.We have always been happy until this past 6 months.We've been thinking of changing doctors.We still love the doctors and PAs but the reception staff leave much to be desired.They are disorganized and rude both on the phone and in person.We've showed up for appts to be told we don't have one, even though we have the paper from them showing we do, and have been charged for no shows for appts we never had.Its sad, I wasn't like this before.

Most thorough doctor I have ever been to. Dr. Ferguson takes the time to listen to you and responds to each and every concern. It may be necessary to wait a while to see him sometimes, but that's only because you can be assured he spends quality time with every patient.
