What People Say About Dr. Cynthia Ward, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Ward was my salvation. It's been a long journey. It started off with migraines. And then for other reasons I developed Trigeminal Neuralgia which she is also an expert on. She suffers from migraines as well so she totally understands the suffering and how difficult they are to control. She works with her patients and makes it a partnership. Always takes time to fully explain everything. Extremely friendly. She is simply amazing and very smart. I recommend everyone to her as she is the best.

In a world of physicians, Cynthia is a doctor. Compassionate & caring. Perhaps too much for her own good. My wife was a patient of hers for nearly 10 years. Almost immediately after meeting her, we didn't see her as my wife's neurologist but as a friend whose expertise was neurology. My wife spent her last week of life as a patient (but not Cynthia's) at the hospital she practiced. Cynthia & her nurse heard about my wife being in the final hours of life and came to say good-bye and cry

Dr. Ward is a well educated and caring neurological doctor that I have ever met - and I have seen several over the past 12 years. She is patient, answers your questions, listens to your explanation of what is going on with you and your system. I like and trust her very much.

I was referred to Dr. Ward after I had an MRI that revealed a questionable issue. Her patience, thoroughness and knowledge left me feeling in awe of her expertise but also quite comfortable knowing I was in her care. She eased my mind a great deal.
