I have been a patient of Dr. Ward’s for 12 years; she has consistently been very thorough in her exams in checking from year to year on past skin issues, addressing new concerns, reviews in detail any procedure she’ll be doing, follow up care and asks me what questions or concerns I have and addresses them accordingly. She calls when biopsy results show that a further procedure, like Mohs surgery is needed; explains procedure and recommends specialist. Dr. Ward, while professional, is very compassionate, caring, pleasant and easy to talk to. Dr. Ward is 5 star MD!!!
