did a great job very happy with the results

Disappointed with the follow-up visit - no follow-up x-rays were given, physician did not ask about my child's level of pain or if there were any questions or concerns. Never touched my child or looked at her cast - only briefly reviewed the x-rays given in the ER and told me to schedule an appointment in 4 weeks to remove the cast. Total time for the appointment was approximately 5 minutes. A nurse and resident were present in the room and did not introduce themselves. This "appointment" could have been given over the phone or not at all - I didn't learn anything new that wasn't already told to me in the ER. And the worst part is my insurance company will be billed and I had to pay the co-pay. And I had to drive over an hour to get to Children's, so I didn't appreciate the inconvenience.

Dr. Timothy Ward's surgery skills demonstrate exceptional knowledge required for his field of medicine. He listens to you so well you can almost hear his brain thinking out loud and is ever vigilant to your physical movement which also provides a diagnosis. Dr. Ward 's diagnosis will give you the confidence you need to make your own personal decision. My electrical shocks were immediately terminated after surgery. If you are hesitant about postponing neck surgery don't. We all have a window of opportunity, use your's wisely. My Dr. Ward guide you.

Appreciated the frank honesty.

my daughter has been diagnosed with a slight scoliosis and uneven leg length wish two of her pcp's agreed could be causing her hip pain. This Dr did not notice scoliosis or think her uneven leg length mattered. When asked if a lift in her shoe might help, he told us to get one at the drug store if we want. Once he informed us that she did not have a disc problem that he needed to correct surgically, he seemed totally uninterested in recommending other remedies.

Dr Ward is excellent! We were in and out of our appointment in no time. He answered all my questions and gave us tips on how to care for him after the spica cast was removed.
