As always, Dr. Ward was caring, attentive, and informative. He always spends as much time as I need. I am thankful for his expertise. – C.M., May 2022
At first I was really upset that I have cancer but Dr. Ward made me feel at ease. I love my Dr. Ward. Thank you for saving my life this far. – Anonymous, May 2022
Dr. Ward spent some time with me and was extremely kind and caring. Spoke in terms I could understand. Have not had that much appreciation for a specialist in recent memory. – R.S., May 2022
I have been Dr. Ward's patient since May 2018 when I was first diagnosed with Stage IIIB ovarian cancer. I thank God every day for putting Dr. Ward and OHC in my life through my cancer journey. I was also in a research program until my cancer recurred. I have gone through two surgeries, 36 chemo treatments, and am now on a chemo pill. I have total confidence in Dr. Ward and his staff. Every step of the way Dr. Ward explained what was going on, what to expect, and made sure I was listened to. He always answers me and my husband's questions and spends the time needed to make sure I/we understand what to expect. I highly recommend Dr. Ward, OHC, and their staff. – M.J., April 2022
