About Me

Care Philosophy

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.

Dr Ward is by far the first neurologist that has actually listened to me! I love that she spends more than 5 minutes with me, as opposed to my past neuro docs. She is amazing and stays on top of my meds and testings for my MS. Thank you, Dr Ward!

I was without an MS Specialist for about 8 years after Dr. Kiren Kresa-Reahl left the state. Followed her PA, Donald Holcomb since being diagnosed in 2004. Recently, Donald landed at CAMC Neurology and expressed to me a new MS specialist would be coming there soon. Well, I transitioned over to Dr. Ward, finally met her during my first appointment and was very pleased with her knowledge and expertise of Multiple Sclerosis. Really looking forward to her working with me on managing my MS.
