I wish there were ten stars that I could give Dr. Ward, he is rather shy, brilliant, kind, and a master doctor. I highly recommend him for everything in his medical portfolio.

I was considering having the Bariatric Sleeve surgery for some time. Rotten economy, change in insurance I only had Medicaid. I thought my chances of ever having this done were gone. Dr. Ward was welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly and I loved that all the things that go along with it are all in one building. He repaired by Hiatial hernia in August 2016 and did the sleeve as well for me. I am so happy, losing weight,feeling good and hoping to be off all meds as well. He is outstanding.

Dr. Ward Saved My Life!!!! Had Problem with Gastric Bypass done 11 years ago. I couldn't eat, in pain 24/7. Went to Dr. Eliyahu Fuchs (gastro) whom is excellent as well, was able to refer me to him and he was able to correct problem ASAP!!! Did not have to wait weeks and weeks. One Day surgery done...and I have not felt better!!!! I am able to eat/drink ....I love this Doctor!!!
