Dr. Ward possibly saved my life. My primary doctor dismissed a cyst in my breast. Dr. Ward didn't and ordered a mammogram. I was diagnosed w/breast cancer, stage 1. She is my guardian & brilliant and most caring doctor!

Patient | May 4, 2017

Very good experience.
Patient | April 13, 2017

3 options for treatment were discussed briefly, no handouts or information provided. Asked to make decision on the spot. I needed time to think about my options & ask ?'s.
Patient | April 7, 2017

Dr. Ward was the most polite and caring Dr. I have been to. Her staff is great.
Patient | April 6, 2017

Great provider.
Patient | April 4, 2017

she was more concerned with instructing a student than helping me. I drove 3 hours one way for help for my problem and I didn't feel heard and left feeling like I was an inconvenience. I am in desperate need of help, my quality of life has suffered and if I could find a doctor who would truely listen, I know my problem can be fixed. I cried the whole way home, not because of what she said but because I didn't feel heard,.....
Patient | April 1, 2017

Best doctor that I have ever been to.
