Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ward "One of my favorite aspects of being a neurologist is the ability to really get to know patients and their families and follow them over a long period of time. I enjoy connecting with patients and making sure they understand their diagnosis and evaluation/treatment plan, and try to treat each patient as if they were my own family member."
