Dr. Ward has been my retinal specialist since 2018. I see him once a year for a comprehensive examination To check my retinas As I had them welded by a laser in 2010. His examinations are always exceedingly thorough and carefully done with very clear feedback.

I have never met a more caring and competent retinal surgeon. His concern for my vision was as though it was his own. Dr. Ward performed surgery to repair a macular hole I had developed. Since moving from Florida I have seen two other retinal surgeons both of whom commented on the amazing work that was performed by Dr. Ward. I only wish I lived close enough to have my other eye under his care. I could not recommend a better physician and surgeon.

He is an excellent retina doctor with superb training and experience. He found a retina problem that others missed and saved me from going blind in that eye.

He performed some kind of laser procedure for blood vessels on my 93 year old mother( which she said was painful); and my mother could never see well again after this! He never communicated to my family and there was no follow-up! I think that he botched the procedure!
