Not a fan of this guy. No bedside manner. Would not recommend at all.
Johnson City, TN |
Terrible doctor, doesn't listen to you, doesn't remember what he said to you from visit to visit. Gets mad when you tell him how you feel. Thinks that you are only drug seeking, I wouldn't pay my high co-pay if I was just drug seeking! Told me pain pills are for bones and cancer, I hope you hurt so bad you can't find a baby aspirin.

The most uncaring, unprofessional and unethical dr. I've ever been to! Would not recommend him to anyone! Talks over you and doesn't really want to hear anything you have to say. doesn't have your best interest at heart. VERY poor rating from me!
in Brookhaven, MS |
The most uncaring and unprofessional physician I have ever encountered. Having been seen in this office for over 5 years I recently requested an increase in my medication. I saw Dr. Ward and with no exam and no questions, was told that I am getting old and should expect to be in pain and that I should suck it up. The next visit to him 3 months later I was told his business is his main priority, not the patient and he did not care about my pain. He does not listen and talked over me.
