Feb 21, 2019
I think Dr. Ford is an excellent cardiologist who takes the time to explain and present alternatives. The hospital system that he operates in however has aspects that to me seem amateurish. I feel qualified to make that statement based on the fact that I spent over 30 years at a major in New York City medical center in medical school.

Jan 13, 2019
I like Dr. Ford and every one in his staff. They are friendly and helpful and explain everything so that I can understand. I have made an appointment for my father because he doesn't like his doctor and neither do I. His Dr. is not as friendly and does not explain all the details of his examination like Dr. Ford does.

Please pardon the pun...but, Dr. Ford is always "to die for" --- He is so kind, patient, and caring. Can't imagine why anyone would want to go to anyone else.
Aug 15, 2018
Since moving from up North to down South, my concerns were finding the right physicians...someone I can feel comfortable with and made sure I understood all about my health. Dr. Ford and his staff did exactly that...always comfortable when I am there for my annual check up, and understanding about my situation. Always pleasant and easy to talk to. I have a heart murmur, and this visit Dr. Ford allowed me to hear what it sounded like, as opposed to his heart with no murmur. That was important to me, and allowed me to experience something I have never done. Thank you for your concern and professionalism.
