Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ward "I strive for the highest ethical standards of care, offering only well-reasoned and accurate diagnoses, then ensuring that patients understand their problem and treatment. In many offices, patients often spend most of their time with technicians and other staff members, with the doctor making a short appearance at the end of the visit. Patients visiting my office will spend most of their time with me and I will personally perform the exam including the glasses prescription and pressure check."
