Specialties

Dr. Kendra M Ward has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

Incompetant and dangerous

Dr Ward poses as an interventional cardiologist but in reality a high schooler will exhibit better judgement and skills. Please do not jeopardize your childs care by going to her! Besides she is a liar and denies complications when that occur blaming staff working under her if you persist in your complaint to the hospital

Dishonest and lies

This doctor was one of the worst I have seen. She really misled us regarding treatment options for our son. Her clinic staff in fact told us to see someone else.

Caring and smart!

Dr. Ward was kind, listened well, and in the end was able to provide a diagnosis others could not. Our daughter is doing well because of the care she received from Dr. Ward
