D.J. Ferner, MD, FACEP
D.J. Ferner grew up as a small-town boy in northwest Ohio. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Heidelberg University, then graduated from the Medical College of Ohio, now known as the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Science. His residency training in Emergency Medicine was at St. Vincent’s/Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio.
Boarded by the American College of Emergency Physicians, Ferner also holds Fellowship status with the college. A full-time emergency physician, Ferner’s current medical practice is focused on adult medicine and trauma at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2008, Ferner has worked as a physician while overcoming deficits associated with the disease. A combination memoir and guide for others with MS, Ferner shares his successes and failures in Doctor, Heal Thyself: A Physician’s Journey of Discovery, Acceptance, and Healing with Multiple Sclerosis. The book, available on Amazon, represents a deviation from mainstream medicine without condemning modern medicine and disease modifying therapy protocol.
Available for interviews, Dr. D.J. Ferner lives with his wife and daughter in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia and can be contacted at djferner.book (@) gmail.com.
