I understand when a doctor can't return trivial calls, when it's crucial to the patients health it should be automatic. My work changed insurance co.'s 5/1 when the new 7 day law passed for controlled substances and after several calls to her for a simple authorization to bypass this as I have been a pain patient for 11 years and not 30 days like Anthem was showing, she wouldn't comply. No return calls, no fax retuned, nothing. I had Anthem going thru hoops for me and she didn't lift a finger.

I don't mind going to her but when things go wrong they are of no help. They Never return calls, not even calls from other doctors or your insurance company. The waiting room is packed and hot with no air at all. They had a fan to help blow stale air around, now thats gone. Once I showed up to my appt. and had my appt. card with me and since someone forgot to enter my appointment into their system they refused to see me. I was given an appt. for the next day but it's an hr. round trip for me.

One positive point, great medication knowledge. No true compassion, Unethical and will not under any circumstance over see or correct actions of her staff. If you want be treated like a drug addicted criminal you're in the right spot.

Always double and sometimes triple books each slot! Spends the minimum of time, usually 5 minutes,after waiting a minimum of an hour. She barely lays hands on you during that 5 minutes. She does not look into anything new or innovative. Appears to be like a puppy mill, get as many patients in per hour in order to earn max amt. of money.

Both Dr and office personnel get a F grading in all areas. Dr is uncaring and doesn't care about patient and required needs and pain. They do not return phone calls and office personnel are constantly quitting or getting fired. If pharmacy is out of med prescribed Dr will not transfer to same pharmacy but diff location. Her response to this problem is she doesn't have the time and patient will have to do without meds. Do NOT go here and waste your time and energy because you will be disappointe!

Please find another doctor!!! The staff there is horrible. They treat you like garbage and they are very rude. The office is very outdated. You will always wait 2-3 hours for your appointment, so be prepared for that. Dr. Ferrell does not have a nurse. She is just an assistant with no medical knowledge and very rude. The waiting room is always packed with patients complaining about how behind things are going. You also will never get to speak with anyone on the phone!

She is very knowledgeable in her area of expertise, pain management. I have not undergone any anesthesiology procedures performed by her. I have only been a patient for four months, yet during that short time I am remarkably satisfied with her care for me. I can usually get an appointment within 1-week of calling. On most visits (4 out of 6 to date), I've experienced a lengthy wait prior to seeing her, which becomes a bit uncomfortable at times.
