Dr. John Ward is an exceptional Cardiologist. I have been seeing him for 15 years regarding my a-fib condition. He has always listened well to my concerns and has prescribed very pertinent tests, treatments and prescriptions. He has been honest with me about the stroke potential with a-fib. Due to my age approaching 75 he has prescribed Xarelto to help reduce the chances of blood clots.

Dr. Ward was very thorough listening to all of my health concerns and adding his thoughts and insights. He ordered some blood work and expressed a deep interest in helping me feel better with my chronic vascular issues, cholesterol, headaches and anxiety. Wish I would have come in sooner but am happy I found him now!
