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, 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.
