There is so much I can say about this doctor and his practice. Originally, when I first started seeing this doctor, I was satisfied. As time went on I became more and more frustrated with the way his office conducts business and how I was treated by Dr. Ward. When calling his office, you have to call several times throughout the day to get a live person, when visiting his office for an appointment, plan to be there at least 4-6 hours.

Dr. Ward and staff, are very cordial as well as professional. On my first visit Dr. Ward took my medical information and ran numerous tests. On the follow up visit Dr. Ward explain a program of treatment regarding my pain issue that works best for me. It's been almost a year and I'm very satisfied with progress of my condition.

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.
