provider was unable to look at my daughters xrays with us in the room. I would have liked to have discussed her xrays with him in the room, but we were unable to do that. After he was unable to open them and left the treatment room to view her x rays, we felt rushed out of the room. I know my daughters problem may not be as "severe" as others seen in this office, but I want to be preventative with her care.

The Doctor rushed in, barely examined her spine or standing position. Looked at the x-ray and said there was nothing to be concerned about. Told her to be more active and walked out.

September 23, 2019

Excellent!!!! You are in and out quickly. He answers and explains everything.

I completely understand the struggle of working in a hospital and the delays. This visit was an extremely difficult since I am almost 8 months pregnant with a 17 month old so when there was a 2 hour delay I was struggling. A notice of wait time would of been appreciated I would of prefer my child to just stay in play area longer then. The doctor seemed very good however I would guess he only spent 5 minutes with her. Maybe he should be given more time for patients.

Doctor Ward is an extraordinary doctor. We love him.

September 16, 2019

I'm concerned that my daughter has 2 fractures in her left arm. At the follow up appointment with Dr. Ward, he never did x-rays to see if the bones were healing properly. He told her to wear the splint for 2 more weeks and she didn't need to come back for any more follow up appointments.
