Saw Dr. Ward for very painful carpal tunnel in my right hand. Discussed options with me and listened carefully to my concerns and questions. Prior to going down a surgical road, he suggested a cortisone shot to see how that would work. So far, so good. Would recommend Dr. Ward to others.

Dr. Ward is an incredibly skilled physician. After my accident where my pinky tip was removed, Dr. Ward restored it such that it retained full motion and function with nearly no loss of sensation. I highly recommend Dr. Ward and staff.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ward to family and friends. Dr. Ward is an excellent surgeon who takes the time to listen to his patients. I went from extreme daily pain to no pain after Dr. Ward completed my surgery.
