DR WARD WAS VERY ATTENTIVE TO MY CHILD'S NEEDS. HE ANSWERED ALL OUR QUESTIONS REGARDING MY CHILD'S CONDITION. I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THE OUTCOME OF THE VISIT.

March 19, 2018

Dr Ward was absolutely no help and told me the crippling pain that I've been experiencing probably doesn't have an actual cause and would just go away eventually. I don't have "eventually" as I am in college for dance (which I told him), I need concrete answers and treatment or action taken to find concrete answers. I did not feel listened to and the entire appointment turned out to be a waste of time due to his apathy. I will not be coming back.

March 13, 2018

Dr Ward was unprofessional, rushed and uncaring. He didn't think that my daughter's problem should have been referred to him and made it clear to us that we were wasting his time. He was condescending and did not help us at all.

March 12, 2018

He seemed biased and short with me regarding questions I had. He had a loud way of speaking and was very terse. Not a friendly person. He was very clear on explaining the diagnosis but rather rude about it.

March 12, 2018

Dr. Ward is excellent. There is no wait time. You get to the room and he is right in. He is very knowledgeable and explains everything.

March 12, 2018

I think this provider is not open to listening to patients and dismisses questions because he's been practicing so long. I felt extremely rushed and concerns dismissed as no big deal. No offer of ideas for possible pain relief.

March 06, 2018

does not have good bedside manner, especially with kids.

March 05, 2018

this apt was a consult on xrays and MRI for my granddaughters back..the Dr was kind and patience and gave us follow up instructions to help her

March 02, 2018

I arrived for my appointment early, and I was waited on within 5 minutes.

March 02, 2018

We are very satisfied with Dr. Tim Ward and would recommend him to anyone experiencing spinal discomfort..
