Dr. Ward's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ward "Dr. Ward is a board certified neurosurgeon that specializes in treating complex spine and brain conditions with a patient centered approach. He is highly regarded by his patients, Dr. Ward listens closely to your problems and takes the time to explain all of the risks and benefits of the various treatment options. When surgery is necessary, it is performed in the least invasive way possible to shorten recovery times and reduce pain. Dr. Ward's interest in medicine began at an early age. His father was a veterinarian and as a high school senior in Mississippi, he became an EMT. That work exposed him to patient care and the inner workings of a small hospital, leading him to pursue a career in medicine. During medical school at the University of Mississippi, Dr. Ward worked with a group of neurosurgeons for a summer and the experience convinced him that he wanted to specialize in neurosurgery. Dr. Ward joined The Center's team of expert neurosurgeons in 2001."

I have been in pain ever since but Dr Ward won't see me because even though he and hospital got over $80,000.00, I still owe $260.00.

I waited 50 mins in a waiting room, all for a PA to come in and spend 8 minutes with me, then waited for another 15 minutes for Dr.Ward to come in and say he can't help me because I'm pregnant. He did prescribe me...more

Dr. Brad Ward I am writing this, because I can not contain my anger and outrage over your demeanor towards my brother, David Howey, when you spoke with him on the phone July 15th.
