    May 21, 2016
    Hello my name is Myrna A. I was Dr Wards last patient to have surgery performed by him prior to him leaving Bakersfield , CA. The exceptional care with the surgery he performed on my wrist was to say perfect . I personally recommend Dr Ward w any fracture and not to mention his bedside manner . Dr Ward explained everything in detail as to what to expect before , during and after my surgery. I truly wish he would come back to California for he was a great asset to Kaiser
