we were kept waiting an hour before going into the clinic and no-one told us the doctor was in surgery. I had to ask what was going on. once back in the room we waited another 20 minutes. I made an effort to be ontime but nobody cared.

July 17, 2018

Dr was very fast, got to the point.

July 17, 2018

dr Ward was a huge blessing to us. he is amazing at what he does.

July 17, 2018

Always late for appointments and spends very little time with us during the appointment , I know he is busy but almost an hr late everytime we go is a bit ridiculous. Appointment scheduled for 9:40 am Post op appointment , didn't even go back into a room until well after 10

July 17, 2018

Dr. Ward and his staff are very professional and courteous. I would recommend him to everyone.

July 10, 2018

Dr. Ward's communication with my daughter and with me has improved a great deal. I appreciate this change.

July 10, 2018

I wish Dr Ward would not take phone calls during my visit.

July 10, 2018

Patient, pleasant

July 09, 2018

Dr. Ward and his staff took wonderful care of my son and made him feel very comfortable.

July 06, 2018

My Child and I felt very disregarded by Dr.Ward. my child was in severe pain and it was not acknowledge. Dr.Ward staff appeared to be on edge when he was around and it was very uncomfortable. My son ended up in the emergency room at Children's 6 hours later. We never met any of the other doctors in his practice but we will be going to them for follow up appointments. I can not believe this man works with children. Very disappointed in Children's Hospital and we would go to another provided, except no other orthopedic surgeon will see my child because they did not do the work. Very frustrating. I hope my child never breaks a bone again, but if he does we will never go back to children's ortho department. Since Dr.Ward is the department chair he controls all of the department.
