I am very impressed with Dr. Ward. He always takes time to listen to any concerns I may have and very patiently explains and/or recommends solutions, alternatives, etc. Before I leave his office he always confirms that I am satisfied with his resolution to any questions/concerns. He is a fine example of the perfect doctor!
