She was my mother's doctor on a valve replacement. Not only was she calm and patient with the entire family, but she was also so incredibly kind. I'm thankful beyond words for her unmatched care.

Dr. Ford has leading-edge surgical skills and outstanding medical care in combination with compassion and kindness. She guided my wife and me through my mitral valve repair. It all went better than I could have expected and I was home just a few days after surgery.

I can't say enough about Dr. Ford's care for me. She performed a quad bypass on me and was at my bed side every night around 10:30 to check on me during my hospital stay. Just one awesome doctor and person. You can trust your care to Dr. Ford.
