    Dr Patricia Ford is such a wonderful and caring physician. She has a very calming demeanor and is always empathetic to issues which may be of concern to you. I have been discharged from her car which was very happy and sad. I will miss Dr. Ford and all of her staff. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

    Dr. Patricia Ford is a miracle worker! I have been a patient of hers for a few years and she is the finest doctor I have ever had. She is extremely kind, patient, understanding and compassionate. She goes out of her way to explain things and truly cares. Dr. Ford is a pioneer in her field of medicine and constantly on top of things. The hospital faculty, nurses and staff are also very nice and welcoming. I highly recommend Dr. Ford.
