This was our first time to Children's Hospital. I was impressed as to how quick we were in and out. I was very please with Dr. Ward. I look forward to our visit in five weeks.

Everyone we met was great

March 22, 2016

Doctor Ward is the best there is.

March 18, 2016

I love dr. Ward..thank you for doing what you do!

Dr. Ward was receptive to, and informed about, an exercise program to work on my daughter's scoliosis situation. While it may not have been recommended if I hadn't asked about it, his knowledge and receptivity to the idea of PT with a Schroth trained therapist was fantastic. We are much happier to try this active route rather than heading directly to a passive brace situation. Dr. Ward was sympathetic toward my daughter and explained the situation well. He came highly recommended and I certainly understand why.

I have had only good experiences at Dr Wards office. He is the best.

March 08, 2016

Staff was awesome. That says it all.

February 16, 2016

Dr. Ward did a wonderful job, speaking directly to my child during our visit. He would listen to his concerns as well as myself. He was very sympathetic and also showed us differently scenarios related to my son's problem.

February 16, 2016

Not only does Dr. Ward have excellent technical and historical expertise, but his willingness to explore and implement new treatment options (Schroth therapy, new braces) make him exemplary in his field.

February 15, 2016

Very courteous and responsive.
