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...more
