      My experience with Dr. Ward was excellent. He had a special ability to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. He is highly qualified and very confident. I would definitely go back (but hope I never have to!)

      I have already mentioned Dr. Ward to several friends. He is a highly proficient practitioner. He is able to convey complicated information in a very understandable way. I was very nervous and he put me at ease...not an easy thing to do. I felt very confident in Dr. Ward's skills. I was not disappointed.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
