Patient Reviews
Apr 02, 2021
My office visits were very efficient and informative. Dr. Ford thoroughly explained the surgical procedure. I was well informed. On the day of the procedure, he spoke with me prior to the surgery and reassured me about the medical procedure. He answered all of my questions. The staff at his office and in the surgery center were wonderful. The front desk personnel are very polite and helpful. The medical staff was very nice and attentive. I would recommend Dr. Ford to my family and friends. My experience was pleasant.
