My mother, who has Alzheimers, had an appointment with Dr. Ward, to which I accompanied her. Since she cannot communicate well, and was actually asleep during most of the video, a less kindhearted and sensitive Physician might have been flustered. I found Dr. Ward to be wonderfully sensitive, warm, extremely thorough, very skilled, and extremely patient, taking his time to make sure all was understood. Very down to earth in laying out all of the options for mom, I appreciated him so much.
