I like Dr. Ward. He is low key and explains everything and shows you the problems on the x-ray or MRI. Gives you the treatment options and lets you decide what you are comfortable doing. The nurses are great.

He listened to me. When you're like me with chronic pain and several issues, doctors think you're just looking for meds. A band aid if you will. We talked about how my issues manifest. We talked about what I've done before and how effective was it. It was good.
