The office people, doctor, and nurses in the department were wonderful.

November 06, 2015

I was very pleased with the way Dr. Ward took his time to thoroughly explain my health concern to me in a way that I felt at ease with my problems.

October 30, 2015

Dr. Ward is the best! Back surgery was 27 years ago - obviously, it has lasted to the present time.

October 26, 2015

Amazing Dr.

October 16, 2015

I have been having health concerns for a year which is why I scheduled an appointment with a specialist. I was made to feel like I was dumb for making the appointment. I was in the exam room for less than 10 mins and no care at all was expressed. Waste of my time off from work to come to the appointment and waste of my time in general. Very disappointed.

October 06, 2015

Dr. Ward is great! Excellent doctor I would defiantly recommend him.

September 28, 2015

Not very happy with the time spent and lack of concern the dr. had for my concerns with my child. Very dismissive of questions and concerns.

September 22, 2015

Dr. Ward has eased my mind about my child's condition and the outcome that is expected. He is always so kind and very knowledgable.

September 11, 2015

I referred Dr ward to my sister since he and his staff were so professional

September 11, 2015

Dr. Ward performed a spinal fusion for me on 5-31-06. No pain, easy recovery, and nine years with no problem.
