    I saw Dr Ward for an inguinal hernia repair. He was very attentive, kind, and direct. I was, of course, concerned the day of outpatient surgery but it could not have gone better. After resting on the sofa the afternoon when I returned home I had absolutely NO discomfort the second day. I was back in the gym two weeks later. He is amazing.

    He was fast and efficient. Dr. Ward checked on me every day that I was in the hospital. He even checked on me before the surgery making sure I was comfortable and all my questions were answered. Overall he was a excellent surgeon and I am blessed to have him for my surgeon.
