Jim Ferguson, PA-C, chose to become a medical provider out of a desire to be of service to the people in his community, especially the underserved. “My most important role as a provider is to be a compassionate listener to my patients' concerns and to help them in their journey towards good health,” he says. He believes people are much more than just the sum of their body parts and as a provider it’s important to be considerate of the whole patient.
Jim earned his a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine and has a Master of Public Health degree from University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Born in Ottawa, Canada, Jim is a dual citizen of the United States and Canada. He and his wife, a pediatric occupational therapist, have four grown children. In his free time Jim enjoys bluegrass music, hockey, playing the mandolin and participating in interfaith activities to promote unity and diversity education within the community of Newberg.
