this is NOT concerning my visit this time. When I call his nurse line I rarely hear back from them. it's gone on a long time otherwise I'd not have mentioned it.
May 28, 2021
I think Dr Ward is THE best internist.! he's thorough, excellent in finding out something that I ask about if it's something that I want to know that he wants more info on. he talks to me about all things I need to be aware of & even draws sketches to explain things clearly. I'm thankful to have found out about him years ago.

because I am a house cleaner to make a living, it is almost impossible to choose early appts. we clean 2 houses each day. I can usually make it by at least 2:30pm. I must come across as difficult, but believe it or not at 79+, my life is as harried as some of yours. I want alll of you to know how much I need and appreciate you. special kudos to the lab technician. dr. ward, you are the best. actually, I sent joshua gilbert and Connie gilbert to you.

Dr. Ward is very good at explaining answers to any questions I may ask him. He will always write out the information or his recommendations on paper to give to me to take home.
