A lot of complaints about Dr Ward being rude. He is not rude. He is to the point. He did a wonderful job with my daughters spinal fusion due to severe scoliosis. That is all that should matter. He is highly skilled at his job. He is a wonderful surgeon and i would recommend him to anyone with severe scoliosis.

Dr. Ward is one of the best. My son has a fairly complicated case, and Dr. Ward made a very sound decision and relayed it to us in terms we could understand. I did not find his bedside manner poor at all~he is just matter of fact and honest. He is one of the few surgeons in our area who specializes in the spines of children and he needs to make many difficult decisions quickly. He was in and out with us, but answered all questions quickly and efficiently. Very happy with our son's care thus far
Terrible. Seemed as if we were bothering him while we were there for my sons appointment. If he doesn't want to help children and has better things to do he should get out of children's orthopedics.
