I always feel that my health concerns are thoroughly reviewed and I always feel confident that the treatment that is prescibed for me is appropriate. I have the highest respect for Dr. Ferris.

February 22, 2016

Good experience. Told Dr. Ferris I was having night and day sweats and extremely tired. My PCP never ran a FreeT4 test. Dr. Ferris did and found out my thyroid hormone is off. Would have never known without her running that test. Extremely caring doctor.

upmc should feel very lucky to have this Doctor and her staff represent this health care system. upmc should strive in find doctors who care and treat people the way Doctor Ferris does. You couldn't ask for a better doctor.

Very good

January 28, 2016

Dr. Ferris is very thorough with my exam. She makes me feel very confident on my condition. I travel 40 miles for my routine evaluation, but it's my choice that I go to the best provider in seeing her as my doctor.

The staff is very professional, answered all questions posed and very courteous. I would highly recommend the dept of dermatology. This is one of my several routine visits.
