Our 7 month old had recurring ear infections one after the next -starting around 5 months of age. She had 4 infections in almost 2.5 months. She was waking up 10x a night some nights. Dr. Ferguson couldn’t be any nicer and knowledgeable. He put us at ease with tube procedure and it’s made a world of difference for her (and us!). Such a kind, humble person. Has always been so pleasant every time we’ve seen him! He even took the time to discuss a procedure with my husband while we were there for our daughter. Can’t say enough good things!!

Our 1 year old son had tubes placed in his ears by Dr. Ferguson. From the referral process, surgery, to the post care appointments, we were very impressed with Dr. Ferguson and his staff. HE answered all of our questions, not a nurse or one of his staff. Would highly recommend.
