What patients say about Dr. ferguson

  • Thanks to my ligament reattachment at KOC, my ankle feels strong and I'm no longer afraid to wear heels, exercise or anything else. Dr. Ferguson is great. My recovery was quick, my scars are small, and I feel like I hit the doctor jackpot.
    – Allison, Knoxville
  • Thanks to my new ankle replacement, I can walk with dignity! I love being able to be active again. Dr. Ferguson is an awesome doctor who is knowledgeable, kind, and he LISTENS. He will accomplish what needs to be done in your best interest.
    – Angela, Crossville
  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can walk without pain! I had my first foot surgery when I was 28 years old and after that I was in pain. I have had four surgeries from different doctors telling me they could fix my feet and of course they couldn't and didn't fix them. I have gone many, many years dealing with the pain. I said they would never touch my feet again until the inevitable happened and I couldn't walk. So I called KOC and met with Dr. Ferguson. He talked to me and went over my X-rays. I put my faith in him and the Lord to do this one more time. Since then I have blessed him and his nurse everyday. I am not in pain on the one foot and now I just can't wait to fix the other one later in the year. If you're in need of a foot doctor please go see him. I cannot express how happy I am with him and his staff. Even the surgery was not that bad. Yes, you are in pain, but that is to be expected if other doctors had messed you up so bad and they're trying to correct a wrong. That is my success story and thank you Dr. Ferguson and staff. I am ever, ever so grateful.
    – Linda, Sevierville
  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can wear fun shoes again! After having constant foot pain for three years, Dr. Ferguson fixed my foot and it feels better than it has in years. I would encourage anyone dealing with foot pain to go see Dr. Ferguson and the great staff at KOC.
    – Mikki, Crossville
  • It is a tribute to Dr. Ferguson's marvelous abilities that Tylenol was the strongest medication needed for pain relief following my somewhat extensive surgery. His personality, at the very least, equals his surgical skills. I personally recommend Dr. Ferguson if you have foot problems. He is a great guy and a surgeon beyond compare!
    – Wayne, Maryville
  • Thanks to my care at KOC and Dr. Ferguson, I am able to walk & play golf pain free again! I have been an athlete for most of my 51 years, and been through several surgeries in my time. My Achilles surgery experience went better than I ever could imagine. Dr. Ferguson is an asset to KOC & I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a foot/ankle surgeon. He was very direct & to the point in every aspect of my surgery & recovery. Follow up appointments were pleasant & informative, plus I never waited long to see him. Following his direction, my recovery went much better and faster than I had expected. Thank you!
