It's hard to determine if a physician "knows what they're doing" so-to-speak so I tend to look at their training andDr. Ward ticks those boxes and part of her training at Harvard. To me, a doctor's personality and bedside manner are very important and Dr. Ward is excellent and just a very nice person and I could tell she was concerned and very empathetic. She was running a bit late, but was very apologetic and respectful of my time. I was really impressed!

Waited a little while after I went back to the exam room to see the doctor, but otherwise everything was prettyquick. Dr. Ward's beside manner was very good. She was knowledgeable and I never felt rushed. I had actually scribbled some notes down that I hadn't brought up in conversation and when she came over to examine me, so actually asked about, which shows an attention to detail I certainly haven't seen with most doctors.

She was great. To the point, quick, and left with a clear plan to attack my allergies in the future. Don’t push future visits or expensive tests.

Dr Ward, her techs, and all staff were the MOST friendly specialist office I've encountered in DC, and with a rare genetic condition, I see many doctors. Everyone is solidly professional, knowledgeable, and listens well. I couldn't be happier!
