Dr Ward is great will def recommend him

September 20, 2016

Dr. Ward was fairly punctual for our appointment time. He is very to-the-point, but I felt my concerns, at times, were trivialized. My daughter has clubfoot, and we asked to order the next size in boots as our correct pair took 6 weeks to arrive. The first pair that arrived were three sizes too big. However, he relayed that toes going over the edge of the boots is normal and should not order the next size. I respectfully disagree with this and would prefer not to skip a size in boots if our insurance will cover it. We also asked him to check the bar length, which he did, but said we could adjust it ourselves, though I would have preferred he completed this himself to ensure it was measured and adjusted properly. Overall, we will more than happily continue treatment with Dr. Ward, but we would love to experience a softer persona.

he was brisk and quick, not much interest in what i had to say about why we were there.

August 29, 2016

Dr. Ward had no interest in caring for my daughter. Made us feel like an imposition.

August 23, 2016

Because my child's prognoses wasn't bad, the Dr acted as if he couldn't be bothered with her case. He was very short with us and very unfriendly.

August 22, 2016

Everyone has been helpful, courteous and competent.

August 16, 2016

Dr. Ward is an expert in his field and greatly appreciated. His only area of growth would be to have increased interaction with the patient--it's all business. One or two questions about the patient's current life would greatly increase engagement and take very little time.

August 16, 2016

Doctor was not very friendly and only spent about 1 minute with us.

August 15, 2016

Dr. Ward acted like wee were wasting his time. He spent less than 10 min with our son and determined he could do nothing for him. The whole appointment was a waste of our time.

wanted to put me on a pill regiment and I don't do that
