Horrible Doctor-Find a another doctor. Dr. Ford works as a temporary doctor for many hospitals for contract. He only has two hours of clinical time a week and runs his office with Nurse Practioners. Dr. Ford and his office staff behave as if they are patient. Your child doesn't matter. The fact that he's a Pediatric doctor is lost. Expect to wait 2-3 hours after your appointment time to be seen. The office staff attitude is he is a specialist so patient care and service on time is NOT required or necessary. Dr. Ford treats you and your child as if he's the gift for your child instead of your child's needs coming first an foremost. The office staff are very unprofessional. Find another doctor that actually works in his own practice instead of outsourcing themselves to contract hospitals full time and only working two hours a week. Outrageous service believe the reviews. Do not go to this doctor you will be highly dissatisfied!

The wait time is more than 2 hours ours was 2:45 minutes and the doctor was hurried, unpleasant and an egomaniac. Your child's needs are not the priority. It's billable hours and surgery referrals to his favorite hospitals. At no time was he interested in our child's history. Run, don't walk away from Dr. Ford. He's not a patient Centric doctor. His office staff are horrible and rude.

horrible

This place is a joke. I took the day off of work, my husband took the day off, my son took the day off school. Drove through traffic that took us over an hour. They decided to close the office without giving us notice. The lady there gave 2 $h!+ less. Waste of time, loss of money. Ridiculous. The place is ghetto . I give it ZERO stars.

Don't wait your time

The waiting time is just too long and you will only be seen for 5 minutes. All that have been said here is 100% true. If you have appointment by 3rd you be seen by 5pm. Don't wait your time. My first and only appointment with Dr. Ford was also terrible, his assistant is fairer than him. He should retire. If there is any thing less than one star that's what I will give.
