I went to Dr. Ferguson about five years ago when I found out I was pregnant and subsequently having a miscarriage. I was prescribed cytotec. I was told I could try again after my next period, which I did. I became pregnant again about two months later and went to confirm my pregnancy. Without being examined or any blood tests run, I was told it was the same miscarriage and they prescribed cytotec and told me to take it today. I asked for blood tests to test my levels. They agreed, but said I still needed to take the cytotec. I asked why they didn't want to wait until the test results came back to see if my levels were up/confirm if a new pregnancy. They said I could wait if I wanted to, so I did. A week later they confirmed it was a new pregnancy. Had I taken the cytotec, I would NOT have my 4 year old today. Against my better judgement, I gave her the benefit of the doubt and stayed with her though my pregnancy. I was judged the entire time - I went to the ED because I was having major stomach cramps and because of my history of miscarriage, I wanted to be evalauted. She threatened to discharge me because I did not call her first for the ok to go to the ED (I was never told I had to do this - it was still early in my pregnancy). I was accused of missing an appointment, which was never scheduled. I never knew what I was going to get at an appointment - either she would be okay or she would be cold and when I asked questions, I was told I needed to take a class and educate myself (I was open to taking classes, but didn't think my questions were that far-fetched for her to answer). When I went into labor, thankfully DeEtte, the midwife, delivered my child. She was kind, patient, and encouraging. Dr. Ferguson had to be called because I hemorrhaged afterwards. She reportedly (according to family and friends in the room) came in and told them to make sure I did not get pregnant again. I thought - surely, they misunderstood. She must have meant to make sure I didn't get pregnant until cleared post-partum. I was discharged from Vidant and began having breathing problems two days later. I called her office and she said it was not a pregnancy issue. So I went to the ED. Come to find out, I lost so much blood postpartum that I had to be given two blood transfusions. I was also told I had postpartum cardiomyopathy and fluid in my lungs. I was told just a few days after giving birth that I was in heart failure all due to my labor. I went to a cardiologist within a week and was told I did not in fact have heart failure, but they had given me so much fluid immediately after my delivery that it had backed up into my lungs and caused my heart to enlarge/work extra. They gave me lasix and I was fine - no chronic issues, no postpartum cardiomyopathy, no heart failure. It was, by far, the scariest time in my life. I will NEVER EVER go back. I love DeEtte, but I gave Dr. Ferguson too many chances. If you decide to go to her, be on your game.
I was made to feel very uncomfortable and like something was wrong with me by this physician. She made me feel like she was doing me a favor by staying to answer my questions during my visit. I felt judged (and I was offered antidepressants at my very first appointment) because I did not display the cheerful disposition they thought a mother-to-be should be displaying. I was weight shamed after finally gaining weight in my last trimester. My appointment for a 3D ultrasound was botched because a scheduler had the wrong information on what week it was to be done, so my window of opportunity passed. When I politely expressed my feelings to this provider she was argumentative, defensive and condescending. I was offered no apology, more of a "I'm sorry you feel that way" and told I could find another doctor if I wanted to. Wow.... She was the only in-network provider in Greenville so I initially felt like I had no choice but to stay. But after the way I was spoken to I opted to drive down to Raleigh for all of my OB appointments, at least there I didn't have to wait 45 mins to be seen.
I have seen this dr before & last visits she was in & out in a flash. No time for questions or concerns. When I had a vagnal d/c, instead of doing wet prep, for a diagnosis, she said the sample had to be sent to a lab for testing. Therefore I had to wait a week for dx & tx. I had already dx myself having had problem before.All these necsary tests whick cased insurance to have pay more. I believe this is a reason insurance rates increase so much.I will definitely see another DR.
The best doctor I have ever had! Dr. Ferguson delivered both of my last two babies - the last delivery was a complicated one and she provided excellent prenatal care, expert crisis care for me in the OR and expert follow-up after delivery. Her knowledge, skills, and compassion are second to none!
