By far, Dr. Ward provides me with the best medical and personal care. You should have Dr. Ward teach other medical interns how to care and respect patients.

Excellent Care. I was thoroughly questioned about my health and habits.

March 01, 2017

Dr. Ward and his assistant were friendly and asked me to explain what was going on and answered with words I was able to understand, breaking down technical names of conditions for people like me who aren't in the medical field. Everyone at the office was polite and friendly as well as helpful!
