Specialties

Dr. Susan C Ferguson has the following 2 specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Just don't ever pick her for your doc!!!

Worst doctor ever! I think she only went in this field for the money. Doesn't care about her patient's at all or their personal well being. Would rather keep you addicted to pharmaceuticals than explore more natural options. Bet she gets lots of kickback $$$$$ from the drug reps.

Do not use this Doctor or Doctors office

This is the worst doctors office I have ever seen. I got stuck with them because of my insurance. They are basically like a free clinic. I usually have to wait 45 minutes after my scheduled time. They don't have a parking lot, and everything is metered. The staff at the front office are rude and unprofessional. I have actually never seen the physician on my insurance card (Dr. Ferguson). Oh and it takes about month to even get an appointment.
