Review of Dr. Ward


I went to Dr Ward for chronic abdominal/pelvic pain that I had since my hysterectomy done by another doctor. This was for a second opinion. I was on meds for it causing bad side affects. I did a lot of research and I just knew I had adhesions. Dr Ward LISTENED to me. She gave appropriate options and offered to take a look inside to see if she could see a reason for the pain. The finding was in fact adhesions. Some were bad. She removed them and I feel so much better ever since. She also has personality! Sooooo friendly and outgoing compared to most doctors.

Review of Dr. Duran


Outlines his preferred course of action & the reasons why he suggests it along with any potential drawbacks. When asked, will offer alternative courses of action and the pros and cons for those. You may need to prompt him for explanations, but he makes them easy to understand. One of the few male doctors I've had who is willing to tell you all your options, let you disagree on what course of action to take, & support you in the option you prefer (the bar is /so low/ but I'm glad he clears it).

Review of Dr. Williamson

- |

Dr Williamson is assisting McFarland Clinic in Marshaltown, IA because of the shortage of primary care providers at this time. He is NOT familiar with any of the patients at this clinic. This makes it extremely difficult for him prescribe your routine meds UNLESS your usual physician has taken PERFECT notes in your profile, which is next to impossible.

Review of Dr. Ward

- in Iowa city , IA |

Dr. Ward has been incredible throughout my entire pregnancy. She has been knowledgeable and professional, but also has exceptional relational skills with patients. I am so thankful to have found such a caring, responsive, and reasonable doctor for my first pregnancy. I cannot thank her enough, or recommend her highly enough.

Review of Dr. Ward


I started seeing Dr. Ward at Westside OB/Gyn when I had abnormal bleeding. Her specialty is/was gynecologic cancer. She was so nice and friendly. No arrogance at all...just a true sense of wanting to help. Over some months of visits, I ended up with surgery which she made feel like no big deal and had me laughing. I would tell anyone family, friend, or stranger, you are in good and caring hands with Dr. Ward.

Review of Dr. Ward

- in Burlington, NC |

My primary obgyn was Dr. Staebler who has been our rock through this pregnancy. However, he was not on call when I was giving birth and I got Dr. Ward instead and I'm very happy we did. She was hilarious and made me smile through the pain of birth. She also sang happy birthday to my daughter shortly after she was born and my husband and I both teared up. She is a beautiful soul and I'm so glad Westside has her on staff.

Disappointing experience with a very impersonal doctor. For anyone considering going through infertility treatments I do NOT recommend this doctor.
