I appreciated the whole staff for helping us though a emotional scare. The Dr and his nurse were extremely helpful.

December 27, 2016

I felt Dr. Ward could have directed his conversation toward my son since he is 15 (almost 16). Also show some warmth & caring. Dr. Ward was knowledgeable & did answer questions.

has a somewhat curt personality.

December 20, 2016

The care my son had was world class and a credit to UPMC.

December 20, 2016

great!

December 20, 2016

Dr. Ward was very rushed in his visit with us, and did not have a very good "bedside manor". When we asked him questions about our child's development that had been stressed as important by the Pediatrician, he completely disregarded our concerns. He also provided no solid suggestions or advise when we asked about how to do normal infant care (diaper changes, bathing, breastfeeding) and responded with a "You'll figure it out". He came off as extremely egotistical, and that his opinions/care trumped all other Medical Professional's previous opinions. We do feel confident in his ability to care for our daughter, but he is not a Dr I would recommend to other parents facing similar issues due to his lack of bedside tact.

December 20, 2016

We drove over an hour for this appointment. Not only was he 20+ minutes late, he one spent two minutes with my daughter. So we drove over an hour for a late appointment with a doctor that did not spend any time with my child and seemed bothered that he even had to come into the room. I will not have his see my children again! And if my child continues to have this problem, he did not seem to even care to find out what may be wrong!

Very friendly staff, and excellent doctor!

November 15, 2016

dr ward was extremely rude. we waited for more than 45 minutes after we had an X-ray. he walked in 1.5 hrs after our appointment, pulled up an X-ray, said everything is in place and tried to walk out of the room. I stopped him and asked a few questions. He answered quickly as if I was bothering him. he never once looked, touched or asked about my child. I found him very ignorant.

November 15, 2016

the only thing me and my wife didn't really like it was the wait time. Our appointment was scheduled at 1:20pm she had her sonogram done around 2:00pm but then we were seen by the doctor after 4:00pm.
