A very positive and reassuring experience. Trustworthy and charming

As a first time mother I feel that I am in very good hands and am confident dealing with Dr Ward. She takes her time and explains everything very thoroughly without feeling rushed.

Fantastic doctor down to earth, never over medicates the kids!

I appreciate the follow-up on my calls always the same day but most importantly I value the common sense approach.
