Dr. Ward’s original office of 14 years was located on Oleander Drive.  In September of 2013, the building was destroyed by fire.  Without delay in time, Dr. Ward and his staff moved into his current location on Medical Center Drive. While the staff misses that gorgeous building, the new office has proved to be a great one in a great location.
