Dr. Ferris diagnosed me with melanoma. She was able to get me in for surgery 2 days after the diagnosis. Her staff is very helpful. One nurse gave me a warm blanket because the room was cold and another put music on during the procedure to calm me. I felt extremely grateful to be in the good hands of Dr. Ferris and her staff.

My doctor is unfailingly positive and respectful in her interactions with me. This busy and highly knowledgeable specialist somehow manages to be efficient in her examination and care of me without ever making me feel rushed or slighted--quite a feat!
