Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am somewhat disturbed. I have been a patient of Ward and Portillo close to twenty years. I called today (November 1 at)to make an appt and was told that the soonest would be February 23 of 2022. How horrible. I guess they don’t need to keep their old patients.

I have high myopia and other vision issues. Dr. Ward gave me the most comprehensive eye exam I've ever had, and adjusted my prescription so I see better at night. She is warm and personable too. The best!

Dr. and staff are all very personable. The doctor is very thorough with the eye exam. When I had questions regarding my diagnosis, she clearly explained (using a model of the eye) the physical changes occurring with my eyes.

Very organized and detailed. Found cataracts and directed me to a surgeon. Did the procedure and ordered minor glasses going forward which came in in less than 2 wks. The staff is excellent.

Been going to Dr Ward for 25 years. On top of her game. Diagnosed two conditions I had and referred em to specialist for treatment. Those doctors were amazed that she found what she did. Best examination ever.
