A real fine doctor!

I've been seeing John for over 15 years and he's gotten me through many tough situations. He's a good listener and shows a lot of empathy. Just what a doctor should be!

Five Stars

I have been a patient of Dr. Ward's for 10 years. My father, my mother and my husband are also patients of Dr. Ward's. Dr. Ward is a professional, puts his patients as his top priority. Our family has seen more that one hospital stay and at all times Dr. Ward tracked and stayed the course. Visiting each and everyday, on top of our care, he saw us through it. I feel so fortunate to know, not only myself and my husband but my Mom is in the best of care!

One Star

Dr. Ward does not listen, does not seem to care and is not helpful. He just wants to book more appointments and collect more money from you without any value.

Greatest Doctor Ever!

Dr. Ward has been my primary physician for 20+ years. He has always treated me with kindness and respect and takes it personally when other doctors do not. He takes time during my visits to talk to me to find out all of my symptoms. As a result, he is able to make an accurate diagnosis and give me what I need to recover. He reminds me of the doctors in the 60's who did house calls. He's very patient. He's the greatest doctor ever. I am truly grateful to have Dr. Ward as my doctor.
