I was referred to Dr. John Ward through Mercy Scheduling when my regular cardiologist couldn't see me until November and I was SO PLEASED! Dr. Ward, his nurse Nicole, and Sharon the clerk were all so amazing! I really feel like they cared about my health concerns and they wanted to get to the bottom of all the problems. I felt so hopeful when I left the appointment and I knew that progress would be made to resolve my issues. Thank you so much!

Dr. Ward is a consummate professional. When we first met before my catherization he told it like it was to me. He said I had to quit smoking, had to exercise and eat better. He said I would have to take my medicine every day. I liked that. I felt confident I had the right team of Doctors and I can say, "They are the best!"
