I have seen Dr Ward many times over the years. He has successfully treated me for disk degeneration, worn cartilage in my knees and broken vertebrae. I would highly recommend his services. He is warm and congenial and speaks with his patients as people. He takes his time with patients and treats them individually with passion and concern. I have never felt I was on an assembly line like at other Dr's offices. I highly recommend Dr. Franscisco Ward.
