Patient Comments (5)
in Lindenhurst, NY |
I have really enjoyed working with Dr. Ferguson in the past. She is great (can relate to her and she listens to the patient, values what you have to say/what you think you need)--the only issue I had was with office staff/communication. For example, there were a couple of times when the cost was raised significantly without notification and still expected.

Dr. Ferguson is one of the most amazing & compassionate psychiatrists I've ever had. She is always thinking of new ways to improve my treatment. I've also received TMS treatments from Dr. Ferguson's TMS coordinator, Caroline. Caroline goes above & beyond in providing care for TMS patients. Once in a blue moon they may run a little late, but they are obviously human. Every psychiatrist I've ever had has run late at some point--it's just the REALITY of mental health care. Be patient & get well!

I saw her when I was 20,presenting problem: eating disorders, depression. She told me I was bipolar;gave me medications that made me feel worse. When I said that-she increased the dose. I felt like a zombie, developed a twitch & gained 80lbs. Came off meds, Saw a competent provider,&learned she misdiagnosed bipolar for severe OCD. Thankfully I have found relief through acupuncture & exercise because Dr. Fergusons incompetence and negligence made me never want to take medication or trust a doctor

I do not recommend her. The practice is poorly run and unresponsive. Unprofessional staff. Totally missed my diagnosis and lied about my problem to insurance. Wait was also terrible before and during visits.

Excellent psychiatrist. Great listener. Doesn't rush me out the door.
