Great doctor, very pleasant. Took time to talk through my questions and explain his reasons for doing (or not doing) certain things. Showed a genuine interest in me. Very thorough without making a routine appointment excessive. Will definitely see him again.

Great personality and technologically up to date, you can view your medical information online and correspond with your doc via e-mail which is ultra convenient for re-filling prescriptions, getting referrals and test results since it's through a Weil Connect secure server (haven't tried that yet though).

I am an MD so my perspective may be different than that of someone from another profession. Entering as a new patient, first visit I am happy to say that I had a 5 star experience from my initial contact withthe reception staff through my signing out process. Dr. Ford is very personable, efficient and thorough. He anticipated questions, discussed options and explained his recommendations. His nurse was just as nice and capable. I booked a new patient appt for my partner on my way out because internists like Dr. Ford are a real find.

Loved Dr. Ford! The office staff was super friendly and Dr. Ford was extremely attentive and spent a lot of time with me understanding my symptoms and thoroughly explaining prescription options. Most doctors are in and out of the room andthrow prescriptions at you. Dr. Ford was attentive and truly caring. Best part was I got an appt in the same day. I will definitely be switching to use Dr. Ford as my primary care doctor.

Hadn't been to the doctor for a physical in 3 yrs so I was like here goes... What I found: Facility is state-of-the art. Can access health information online and on iphone. I like that as I am tech person Frontoffice staff is very professional, not the borderline ghetto crew you can sometimes get. Dr. Ford and I had a conversation and I could tell he was trying to establish a connection which he did in the end. Genuinely like this guy.
