Always excellent.

July 24, 2017

I have the utmost respect for Dr Ward and his staff. After a 2 month stay last year in the hospital and not knowing my problem, Dr. Ward repeated a test I had done at East and found my problem, resulting in my needing open heart surgery and a valve replacement . So I have the highest regard for Dr. Ward.
