Dr. Ward has a terrible chair side manner. He is abrupt and rude. He talks over the patient and does not listen. He is consistently unpleasant. The office is cramped. He overschedules and once you in the office you wait and wait until he breezes in and gives you 3 minutes. I had waited in...more

Dr Ward and his staff are very professional while being very patient and helpful. My mother and I are both patients. We like the hospitable staff for the extra care they give my mom who has dementia and has some difficulty getting around.

I was referred to Dr Ward through the Lion's Club and was so happy to find such a professional doctor. He immediately repaired my retinal hole and helped me with the eye drops I needed. I loved his caring staff and would recommend Dr Ward to anyone with eye problems. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

Dr. Ward is an excellent doctor. He has gone out of his way to help every member of my family over the years. He only performs the necessary procedures and doesn't do anything just to put money in his pockets. He is very professional.
