Seeing 25-30 patients daily over 21 years makes the validity of 11 patients comments alone questionable. Happy people don't go back to the internet to complain.

We had an excellent experience with Dr. Ward when we took our son -- professional, knowledgeable and spent quality time with us. Lets us know the care plan and his philosophy.
in Niles, MI |
Just moving to the area I was a little nervous about starting over with a new neurologist. Dr Ward was very attentive to my concerns and my history. Didnt seemed rushed at all took his time with me and addressed my husband's questions also. He is very laid back not pompous at all.
