Spends little time with patient and rushes them

Awful bedside manner. Rushes patients to the point you don't feel like he is fully listening . Does not spend enough time with the patient to truly help them.

Excellent physician who listens to the patient. Because Dr. Ford listened to my concerns and answered my questions, I was able to decide to have my keratosis removed in a two step procedure to lessen my chances of scarring. Im happy to report I did not get a scar on my temple! I highly recommend him for skin cancer concerns.

The first thing that came out of his mouth was, "Sorry to keep you waiting (40 mins!!). You were 6 minutes late so you were put at the back of the line." I checked in at the registration desk ON time. Problem is your inefficient system where patients check in upon entrance then check in again at the office. FIX that, then your MANNERS. I would never go back to see this guy.
