Needed some tests before cataract surgery. Have been going to Dr Ford for 30 years and wouldn’t go to anyone else. He is absolutely the best. Also, his assistant Jeremy was outstanding. Friendly, professional and funny.

Dr. Ford is the Doctor you always want hen you are sick> He listens!!! After listening, he goes out of his way to provide a potential solution or makes a referral to a specialist if one is required. When I moved to San Antonio from Dallas in 2006, I continue to thank the doctor who recommended Dr. Ford.

Very appointment with Dr. Ford. Always concerned and answers all my questions without hesitation. Always reviews the results from the prior appointments and asks if I have any questions or concerns. He checks to see if I need prescriptions refilled and handles it right away. A GREAT DR. and I am glad he is my Dr.
