5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Wish I Had Done It Sooner! - Arlington, TX

Dr. James Ward has a terrific bedside manner. He is honest in what he can accomplish for you and what would not be a good choice. I personally knew his surgical nurse she recommended him highly which was an added bonus. He goes over the procedure with you, answers all your questions. Takes all the time you need. My results were far better that all the pictures I have seen on the internet so I was just so amazed to see my results. He is retiring in March! I had hoped to get a face lift before he retired will have to try and work that in my budget quickly. Have a lot of respect for Dr. Ward and a lot of faith in him.
