Dr. Leslie H Ward has the following 1 specialty
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.

Dr. Ward was so caring ad great with my children. We recommend her to everyone
I took my 2 year old crying daughter in for stomach pain and Dr Ward very rudely told me: I can't examine your daughter if she won't cooperate. Well, my child was crying because she was in pain. She wasn't fighting the dr, she was just crying very loudly. I guess the crying irritated her quite a bit because she threw her arms up and said, "I can't complete a proper exam because of her screaming". I understand that a child's crying can be hard to deal with at times. But she is a PEDIATRICIAN! She should have been trained to deal with a child in pain that cries. She told me, "I am guessing it's constipation" and then she rolled her eyes and sighed loudly. Like...her sigh was my cue for to just leave. I picked my daughter up and walked out. She is rude! I saw her a few months later with her own child in an urgent care office...I suppose she isn't even qualified to diagnose her own child. You're horrible, Dr. Ward.
