Claremont, CA |
Don't bother calling. After 3 days of calling, I was never able to speak with anyone in their appointment department. The operator offered many excuses and apologies, but no one ever called. They are, apparently, too busy to help. If this is what it is like trying to get an appointment, you can only imagine what their in office service must be like.
Both my husband and myself have been seeing Dr Ward for various knee issues for years. We have great confidence in her and trust her observations. She is very well know for her expertise as an orthopedic surgeon and if her bedside manner is as good as her office manner she is a definite WINNER!! Also, if you see her PA Andrew, you will continue to be in good hands.
I saw Dr. Ward at Garey Orthopedic in Pomona. She is very much over-rated, not the great doctor some people think. I had been in the exam room a short time waiting for her (that wasn't a problem), and then she enters the room, doesn't look at me or greet me, just goes straight ahead to a computer and sits down at it without a word. That's already insanely rude, but it got worse. She didn't listen to me, didn't ask me any pertinent and wouldn't answer me when I asked questions. Do not go see her.

Dr. Ward! I had two shoulder surgeries (right and left shoulder) with her when I was 16 & 17 years old. I remember her being so incredible! The staff was always super friendly and always reminding me to ease off the skateboarding. (Sorry Dr. Ward, but ask Dr. Chong what I've done recently.) She is such a great individual and incredibly caring surgeon. Highly recommended!

Dr. Ward is extraordinarily compassionate and direct with patients and family
Rancho Cucamonga, CA |
She looks into all medical needs 100%. She took her time with me. She explained the procedure she was going to use for my surgery, She is friendly and out going. Her staff is on task and friendly as well. When she read the report form the x-ray, she also put in what she saw beyond the report.
