I could tell he was in a hurry and it seemed he did not want to spend to much time with us.

March 20, 2017

I felt that the provider was very rude and didn't really have much time for us. He never gave the chance to ask questions or express concerns. When my child got her cast on , he did not re-check her before we left to make sure it was correct, too tight or that she was able to move her fingers, etc. I was not happy with how we were treated during our visits with Dr. Ward.

This visit was a check-up to check our daughter's growth after hip dysplasia surgery. Dr. Ward has been amazing and I would recommend him to anyone with a child needing orthopedic care.

every time we was at the office the dr was in and out spending less then 10 min with us, it always felt rushed.

March 06, 2017

I was nervous to come in the office after reading so many negative reviews on a doctor, but my child really needs help. Dr Ward was very kind and answered all of my questions. His stall was also very kind. He was not able to help with my child's pain but was able to direct us as to where to go next and relieve us that her spine is not fractured or worse. So we are very thankful for the time he took with us.

Dr. Ward is an excellent doctor!

February 27, 2017

we had a horrible experience with Dr. Ward he was rude and would not listen he also was very condescending .. I would never tell anyone with a child to go see him he acted like we were wasting his time .. it's such a shame that someone with all that knowledge would behave that way with a child .

good experience for my child;
