I've had the misfortune to damage my left rotator cuff once, and the right one twice. Dr. Ward repaired a full tear of my supraspinatus this last time, and did a fine job. I had full range of motion within weeks, and I am very satisfied with my experience, overall.

The whole appointment was a joke. Don't go to this doctor or this office. They take unnessessary X-rays that they don't need or even mention during the appointment, then they can't even take your money to pay for the appt. The office literally couldn't take either a card OR cash! It was the weirdest thing... It was at Glacier Medical something or other on Baker in Whitefish. I'll never go there again.

I was treated and operated on for left shoulder rotator cuff repair . It has been a year and the shoulder repair was a success. I found Dr. Ward to be friendly, caring and truthful. His appointments were on time and he is very considerate. I would recommend him to family and friends..( I have already). Don

Dr. Ward is exceptional. The time, care, and effort he put forth when taking care of our son (whom he performed elbow surgery on) was incredible. The follow up care was also exceptional. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family. If we ever have any orthopedic needs in the future, he will be my first phone call.
