Dr. Teresa Ferguson is the very best doctor my son has ever had. She takes the time to explain exactly what is going on with his injuries, why each occurred, and how to fix them through her care. Awesome! We definitely need more doctors like her who understand her patients' needs.

I brought my Daughter in with a foot fracture follow up yesterday. First visit with Dr. Ferguson, I must say she was thorough and kind. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Horrible experience. Does not listen to concerns and not good with child.

Dr. Ferguson is fantastic. My son had three breaks, on three different occasions all within the same year so I have had multiple office visits and plenty of time to evaluate her skills. My son is autistic. She has always made him feel comfortable. We have never felt rushed. She has gone above and beyond to answer questions and provide direct care for him instead of delegating things to her nurses. She is patient and kind. I highly recommend her and I have extremely high expectations!
Dr. Ferguson is a kind, compassionate doctor. She explains things to children as well as to their parents. She always makes us feel at ease, takes her time to answer all of our questions, and she is honest about procedures, healing timelines, etc. We would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an orthopedic doctor/ surgeon. I do wish that the office staff was friendlier and more professional.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ferguson. She took time with my daughter to explain everything so I could understand what needed to be done. She called us personally to discuss the next steps. She was friendly and demonstrated her professionalism with a Mom's heart which was very comforting to both my daughter and me. She even convinced my daughter to swallow pills after I've tried for years with no luck! She has also treated my son. We had a great experience with her care for him as well.

My son was born with a right clubfoot, that night close to 9pm Dr. Ferguson came to our hospital room to completely explain the entire process we had ahead of us. We were so surprise and thankful she made time that late to see us. She then came the next morning at 7am to cast my sons foot for the first time. Dr. Ferguson will be dedicated to your child and do whatever she can to correct the problem. We are so thankful to have such a great Orthopedic Surgeon in Saint Louis. SHE IS THE BEST.

Horrible experience. Will never go back! Rude, didn't introduce herself and very bad bedside manor, especially with kids....do not take your children to her. She was very nasty to my son!

Doctor Ferguson was nice and friendly. However, getting a hold of her office staff is extremely hard. 9.5 out of 10 times that we called the office (to schedule appt or ask questions), nobody picked up the phone. We left messages and prayed to get a call back. Sometimes it happened in an hour; others half a day later; sometimes, none. The office didn't seem to be super busy, so I don't know why they didn't pick up the phone. Also, the website do not have office hour info, not convenient.

Waited quite awhile to be seen then was rushed through our appointment. She wasn't friendly at all and really doesn't seem to enjoy her job. Not kid friendly at all considering she is a pediatric doctor. Also had some billing qiestions after receiving EOB and couldn't get office to return my phone call.
We didn't have to wait long but we felt rushed the whole time. Dr Ferguson didn't introduce herself, I assume we were supposed to just know who she was? She wasn't rude but acted very aloof and most questions were referred to the nurse. We were supposed to have a wheelchair called in for ease of mobility. I had to call the office 3 times and go there in person to demand an answer as to why the order hadn't been sent yet. No one mentioned that they close early on weekdays. AWFUL EXPERIENCE
