Though you might have a bit of waiting time on the day of your appointment, rest assured, Dr. Ferguson will spend whatever time necessary to explain and discuss your concerns. He answers every question with full respect and sensitivity….so don't NOT ask this doctor a question because you think it's unimportant. I'm a lung cancer survivor and I owe my excellent health for the last seven years to Mark Ferguson and my other University of Chicago physicians who really work together as a team.

Dr. Ferguson is brilliant! My mom had stage III lung cancer and was given no hope for treatment to work from her other doctors. Dr. Ferguson saved my mom's life! We are so grateful for him and his team!

Dr. Ferguson saved my mothers life - Cancer in the lung. He took out 3/4 of her lung at mid 70's and she is still cancer free. We highly recommend this Dr. very compassionate and straight to the point. Really Cares for his Patients Spiro
