    Having suffered from acne for 10 years+, Dr Ferguson’s treatment has been life changing. He immediately persuaded me to take the right medication, and was very supportive and detailed. I felt confident in his judgement. I will undoubtedly go to him again with any future skin problems I have, and look forward to hearing options for scar reduction.

    I contacted Dr Ferguson after becoming very frustrated following 3 misdiagnosis of what turned out to be a periorbital dermatitis. Other dermatologists had diagnosed it as an allergy and prescribed various antihistamines which didn't do anything. Dr Ferguson was thorough in his examination and quickly identified it as periorbital dermatitis, prescribing a 2 month course of antibiotics which cleared up the problem. Dr Ferguson's detailed knowledge and thoroughness solved the problem where other supposed specialists had failed - I'd have no hesitation in recommending him. Thank you!
