Patient Comments (2)
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
Took time with me to explain what was wrong with my knee. KInd, experienced and thorough physician.
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
The worst experience I've ever had. Showed no compasion in helping me. He even contradicted himself on the time frame of my injury. Exact words: your knee will be back to normal in 4 to 6 weeks. After I reminded him it had been 5 months already. He then said your knee may never be the same again. He never recomended anything for me. He did not want to help me period. Please people. There are many other Doctors to choose from other than this one. Do your research before considering Dr Ward.
