Best part of the experience was dealing with the nurse that performed all six off my Ketamine procedures. Dana Saparito was kind, caring, and very knowledgeable in any of the Ketamine questions I had for her concerning the overall procedure. Dana made the experience so much easier for me to get through the six procedures. I felt safe and that I was in great hands through out. If you are lucky enough to get Dana at any time with the Ketamine procedures, you have nothing to worry about.

Dr Ferguson practice is run very poorly. Organization and communications with patient are inconsistent. Dr Ferguson seems more focused on developing her practice, not with her patient relationships. Would not recommend.

I was a patient for years and only because finding a new doctor is so frustrating. This office just wants your money. They pretend to be nice but they genuinely do not care about you, just your $. They moved offices without telling me, I showed up to my scheduled appointment at their previous office only to be charged a missed appointment fee and told they mailed me something (never got it). My appointments were every 3 months for refills on my meds. When we went into quarantine my anxiety went through the roof and she suggested I make my next appointment in 2 months instead of 3. She never mentioned I would be required to make another appointment the following month for a refill. I talked to the receptionist and the doctor about how I didn’t agree and wasn’t told upfront and they claimed me telling the doctor I didn’t think that was fair she charged me for “consulting with the doctor” ...really? A 2 minute call about how she and I had NOT agreed I would be making another appointment a

Without hesitation, I would recommend Dr. Ferguson to my family members and friends, in fact I have already done so. She is caring, compassionate and kind, and her expertise is beyond my comprehension! Her warm and friendly demeanor makes you feel comfortable immediately. Her confidence in her ability to help you, puts you as ease as soon as you meet her. Her warmth and ability to connect with me is something that was very important to me. She immediately displayed that genuine quality, which made me feel that I found the doctor I was looking for. In addition, all of the other staff I have had the pleasure to work with in my quest for optimum health in Dr. Ferguson's office, are equally professional, friendly, caring and possess the same confidence and desire to make you well and whole again, as Dr. Ferguson does. Dr. Ferguson and her staff are truly a team when it comes to taking care of my health and well being. Together they give me complete and total confidence in them. RH

I have been seeing her for a year. I have seen other doctors in the past and she is by far the most uncaring person in the field that she is in. She makes you feel worse after the session with her. At least she did for me and her staff is ridiculous every time I come in there I have some crazy balance when I have two insurances and I pay a copay every time I am there. I would not recommend her at all. Not returning.

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.

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.
