Philadelphia, Pa |
Fantastic Doctor. Very knowledgeable, kind and caring and extremely thorough when it comes to explaining diagnosis and solutions. I would highly recommend Dr. Ford.

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.
