I started practicing family medicine with Elvin Stanton in 1983, one of the first
and greatest champions of preventative medicine in Southern California from 1945
thru 1985. When he retired in 1985, I merged our practice with Foothill Family Practice
until September 2008 when I left to start “Ferguson Family Practice” (Timothy J.
Ferguson, M.D., Inc.).
My staff and I are truly a team dedicated to preventing diseases and improving the
quality of our patient’s lives while saving them time, money and suffering.
In less than 2 years, we have become a leader winning recognition in improving quality
indicators in not only controlling, but decreasing diseases in our patients.
Measurably, we have increased weight loss and smoking cessation, lowered and controlled
blood pressure, blood sugars and cholesterol. We have met 100% of childhood and
adult vaccination goals. In our female patients, we have greatly improved pap smear,
mammogram and breast self exam compliance rates.
Our IPA (Health Care Partners), some of the HMO’s and soon Medicare are measuring
our patientsatisfaction scores. We have the highest area scores for shortest wait
times for scheduling an appointment and waiting in the office to see me or my PA,
Jessica Arenas. Our office is often recommended to others.
We value YOUR satisfaction, however, the bottom line is keeping you healthy! GOOD
HEALTH IS NOT A GOAL….IT’S A CONSEQUENCE of yourlifestyle and yourcommitment to
set an example for your children, grandchildren, family and friends.
