He explained basically all questions asked with no hesitation and with ease that gave a sense of comfort, reliance & trust in his expertise. He was extremely pleasant & knowledgeable in his profession & speciality. He was excellent! He offered & provided a wealth of knowledge. I can’t stress enough of how well received he was. He presented a calm-relaxed atmosphere. Great Doctor!

awesome doctor, by far the best I have ever seen all around. Takes time to explain everything to you and is very down to earth. He has Personally called to explain my blood work and treatments for hep c to me. I am a former opiate addict, so I have definitely been witness to my fair share of doctors over the years. Dr. Ford is by far the best when it comes to actually being a doctor and getting treatment for his patients,also very easy to talk to.I do not feel rushed what so ever in his office.
