Here are kind words from others
I have been reading & learning from Dr. Ferguson's Healthtap input for a number of months. He is clearly very knowledgeable about pediatrics, infectious disease & a medicine in general. The information he provides is balanced, accurate & always right on target. He has earned my respect. He is providing an excellent service to the public via Health tap. I recommend Dr. Ferguson.
Dr. Ferguson knows how to talk to kids and to parents as well, which is to say he is an expert in his field with effective execution, combined with warm bedside manner in caring for his anxious youthful patients, as well as their even more nervous parents. BRAVO, Dr. Ferguson!!! We learn much from you here on HealthTap!
Dr. Ferguson appears to be tireless. I so enjoy his answers to even the most unusual questions. He displays a level of compassion and fund of knowledge that are admirable. I highly recommend him and will continue to appreciate and learn from his contributions to health tap.
I am recommending Dr. Ferguson for a 2nd time because he shares his compregensive knowledge of pediatrics in a straightforward, casual but authorative style. Also, he doesn't seem to mind comments from an aging feminist with a quirky point of view.
Excellent answers presented in a down-to-earth, caring fashion. Well respected by patients and his peers here on the site. A great asset for health tap parents and teens
Highly knowledgeable and well respected. Has helped so many patients on Health Tap and in practice. A treasure. Highly recommend.
