I have been seeing Dr. Ferrar for decades and hope he never retires. Whenever I see him, he is totally focused on me and the reason for my appointment. I never feel that he is rushing to get to next patient, and I cannot say that about all of my doctors. He is pleasant, thorough in asking questions, and has a good sense of humor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Internist/GP.

Dr. Ferrar is a competent, caring primary care physician who listens to what you have to say and answers your questions in a no-nonsense way. If further follow-up with a specialist is needed, he will send you to the best person available. I never leave feeling that I have been rushed through, but am aware that he doesn't linger over matters that are of little importance. I would recommend him without any reservations.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Derrar for about twenty years and have been very pleased with his medical interactions with us, in particular his prompt reply to any inquiries we have submitted to him (not something we can say of many doctors).
in Richmond, VA |
Dr Ferrar shows interest in his patients and takes time to talk with them. He does not rush you out as if he is in a hurry to get rid of you. If you send him something in writing you can be assured he reads it. if he does not tell you you can tell by the questions he ask.
in Richmond, VA |
I have been seeing Dr. Ferrar for over 20 years, and he always takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns. Always returns phone calls in a timely manor and I feel confident seeing any of his associates if he should be on vacation.
