    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.

Great medical care.

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.

Humble, Honest and Plain Speaking

Dr. Ferrar is a very likable and humble individual who will speak to you in plain English. If you don't understand something, just ask him. He is a no-nonsense physician but still maintains a sense of humor and has a terrific bedside manner. I always feel completely at ease visiting him.

Dr. William Ferrar

I have doctored with Ferrar for over 15 years and he is very knowledgeable and thorough. He is one of the few doctors that call his patients directly with lab results or returns calls if a patient leaves a message. I would highly recommend him. When I first moved to this area and was looking for a PCP, my wife asked around her office if anyone had a recommendation. One girl told her that her dad was a doctor and instructed her to doctor with Ferrar. He said he would trust him with his life. So, I went and have continued on with him ever since. I am thankful for all his care of the years.
