Hello, my name is Dr. Diane Ferguson, and I have practiced internal medicine for over 20 years. I am happy to be part of the Kaiser Permanente family, where I can continue to enjoy relationships in primary care with members, guiding them through their health and wellness decisions. I look forward to meeting you!
I grew up in Kansas and was influenced by my internationally famous spine surgeon from the age of 11 on. I had scoliosis and had to wear a back brace for 4 years, which was a real life-changing event for me. I went back to Kansas City for medical school after college in Texas and ventured on to California for my residency program, then stayed for the beautiful weather. My daughter and I have enjoyed living here since 1993.
I like to know the members I interact with and their goals. I feel I learn much from them as I provide medical knowledge in my areas of expertise. I enjoy teaching and motivating members to achieve their goals in wellness, encompassing psyche (mind) and soma (body).
Life is busy but better if we take time to take care of ourselves. I enjoy yoga immensely as well as meditation. I also like to run on the sand at the beach.
