    I have been seeing Dr. Ford for 16 years and he has helped me through many health issues and obstacles throughout my life. He is a wonderful physician and I have never felt rushed. You might wait a little longer to see him in the office but that is because he gives all of his patients the time that they need. I would highly recommend him!! I am also an M.D. and will continue to see him.

    Very thorough. Extremely pleasant staff! From the receptionist to the nurse to the doctor, everyone seemed happy to be there and happy to help. I did not feel rushed all questions were answered and explained completely. A breath of fresh air when it comes to doctors office visits.

    Dr. Ford has always treated me and my husband with concern and kindness. You don't mind waiting your turn when you know this doctor is going to see the whole person and not just the illness.
