SHC Patient, May 2015

My provider explained a test that I needed to have done & when I needed to do it. He suggested that I do it at the same time as another test because it was in the same building so that it would be more efficient time wise.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Care providers are OK during sessions, but follow-up instructions are weak.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I felt very comforted.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Very good

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Given it was my first visit with this doctor, I feel the exam could've been more thorough.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Everything was okay.

professional service

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Visit was for a check up only - No problems.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Ford followed up promptly with email on the test results and follow up visits. Excellent!

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

I consider Dr. Ford a superb physician.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

I always have a positive experience and results with this practice.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. Ford is awesome, but clearly the entire staff is under the gun to get patients in and out as quickly as possible. With a minimum of interaction time. Better have a list of questions ready or else you may not get answers.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Dr. Ford is outstanding. I never feel rushed, he includes me in decisions, and I'm comfortable asking any question: Outstanding MD!

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Excellent dr.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Prompt, helpful, friendly as always. I saw Dr. Ford only -

SHC Patient, May 2014

The provider is always in a hurry to leave. He seems to be interested in finishing a quota rather than giving a personal medical service.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Dr. Paul Ford is friendly and kind. Both my wife and I are proud of having him as our family doctor, but he seems to have so many patients in his care though he never neglect taking care of every patient on schedule.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

Dr. Ford does an excellent job. I very much appreciate his compassion & caring.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Dr. Ford always spends the time I need during my visits.
