A visit with Dr. Ward is always an enjoyable experience. He's very professional, courteous and thorough with his exam. He asks a lot of questions about my health and is very effective at answering any questions I may have. I would recommend him to anyone for treatment.

John Ward is an excellent clinician!!!

February 22, 2017

Dr Ward is truly sincere, helpful and kind. I never had a doctor like him to take his time with me and make sure to go through everything and ask the right questions. He really focused on my health. He listened and when he talked he explained things in a caring way. He is wonderful. We should have more providers like him. I'm so happy he's in GreenTree!
