    My whole experience with Megan Ward, the receptionists, CNA’s or who ever has taken me to the room, taken information have all been so pleasant to deal with. They have treated me with kindness, professionally, and wit courtesy. Megan in the few times I have seen her is always interested in whatever I say. She listens! Answers your questions and has never made me feel foolish for the questions. Told me what the next step was. Went and got a model of a knee to show me what would be done usually with a replacement. Told me about the surgery itself. And had her assistant come and get me set up to see the surgeon. It all went so smoothly, and Megan has away told the truth. Didn’t sugarcoat anything, so LVel had no surprises. Kudos to Megan and her team! Thank you Megan and others.

    It was very good. Ms. Ward listens very well and has an excellent understanding of orthopedic problems. She starts with conservative treatments such as physical therapy before doing costly tests, etc. One problem: I haven't received my After Visit Summary with all of the instructions she gave me verbally. My visit was on Weds, 9/18/19. Yesterday, 9/19/19, I wrote a message inquiring about the summary and her nurse replied that I would get it, but she did not say when. It would helpful to get the After Visit Summary within a day of the visit.Today is 9/20/19 and I still have not received it.

  • Sep 08, 2019

    I thought she did a great job. I don't know, you know, that much about it, but I think she made a really good recommendation. I appreciate her...her whatever. I think she did a great job. Anyway, thank you.

    Megan listens! She treats her patients with respect. Never makes me feel rushed, or feel hesitant to tell her about my symptoms. I chose to have injections in my knees due to the pain and issue at hand. I was very nervous about this, but Megan was patient, explained what she was going to do and then how it would feel. Did a fantastic job! And during this procedure, she ask me how I was doing, reminded me to breathe. When she was done, she offered me ice packs and to take as much time I needed to sit and relax after the injections. This is how patients like to be treated. Thank you Megan.u

Gave me their suggestions for the pain in my knees. Injection!!! I was very apprehensive, but they did a fantastic job. I followed their directions, and today am doing fantastic! Great job!
