Dr. Ferguson is excellent!


Dr. Ferguson is outstanding. She is always takes time with us and listens carefully to what we have to say. WFBH would do well to have all their physicians be like her.


We went in to visit Dr Ferguson as a referral for a 2nd opinion. The time that she took with us to explain the nature of injury, procedures for surgery, and recovery processes was greatly appreciated. By the time that we were done with the appointment, we had decided to change surgeon and allow Dr Ferguson to perform surgery. She was professional, gracious, knowledgable. We are extremely happy with her services.


*Dr. Ferguson probably the most caring physician I have ever met. Aware of my personal living situation, she realized surgery wasn't my best option. She gave me numerous options to choose from (including studies) and had out of pocket prices available. This was particularly important as many of these are "experimental" & not covered by insurance. She was genuinely enthusiastic to help.


Excellent clinician and bedside manner!


i have great confidence, respect, trust with Dr. Furguson. She is extremely intelligent, knowledgeable and has the best bed-side manners. I'm very satisfied with the medical care she has provided.


I have know her for many years and so happy to have her part of my life and health! She has been supportive in all decisions when it came to my health, gave me her best options and i never felt pressured to choose one over the other. Always honest and straight with me.


Dr. Ferguson is absolutely AMAZING. This was the first time I had ever saw her and I was impressed from he beginning. She is super friendly, very intelligent and actually seems like she cares wholeheartedly about her patients. I wish all health care providers had her care and compassion. you can tell she cares about her patients and that she is passionate about her job. She did not treat me as if I were a number and ahe did not rush me. Again, she is amazing.


she is exceptional. so smart but talks in understandable language. very compassionate


Great doctor!


Dr. Ferguson has been so patient and thorough in helping me understand everything about my condition and the treatment options. Excellent!


Dr Ferguson is one of the most thorough doctors I have visited and always spends quality time with me!


Dr. Ferguson is outstanding. If all of the Wake providers were like her WFBH would have no competition.


*Dr. Ferguson is a awesome dr. I wouldn't have anyone else performing my operations but her. I just love her again she's a awesome dr.


Dr. Ferguson is simply wonderful. She is bright, caring, naturally friendly and intellectually curious. I consider myself fortunate, as does my wife, in having Dr. Ferguson as our primary orthopedist. I have recommended her to others... as I have also recommended WFBH generally due to Cindy's and my personal experience and, in many cases, the experiences of my clients. I practice law representing plaintiffs in personal injury and and injured workers in workers' compensation, so I have more experience than the average consumer with evaluating the excellence of medical care.


Dr. Ferguson is wonderful! Knowledgeable, personable, and patient with patients!


I have been seeing *Dr. Ferguson for years and have never had a bad experience and would highly recommend her.


this was the best experience I have ever have with a doctor. Dr Ferguson was amazing, she made me feel like I was the most important person for her. I will recommend her to my friends and family. we need more doctors like her.


*Dr. Ferguson is a one-of-a-kind dr. who goes above & beyond in my opinion. Your establishment is lucky to have her.


*Dr. Ferguson answer all our questions and spent as much time with us as we needed. She is great.
