I have seen Dr. Ward on several occasions for two separate issues. I feel that he does a great job in overall evaluation, listening to me, discussing various directions/options with me.

*Dr. Ward spent an amazing amount of time explaining my problems & their interrelationships with other orthopedic problems at issue currently. I was able to understand everything completely, & felt very confident with our plan of action going forward. I have the utmost confidence in *Dr. Ward, & am still so impressed with the amount of time he spent with me to assure my understanding & subsequent confidence in the treatment that he recommended & I chose.
