As a member of our OHC physician team, Dr. Ward has full access to the OHC Clinical Trial research program.

We encourage our patients to discuss all of their healthcare options — including Clinical Trial research programs — with their doctor.

The following are recent reviews provided by actual OHC patients:

"My doctor is Patrick Ward. He always spends time talking to me about what is happening in the research community involving breast cancer. I realize that I may have to wait a while, but I feel he gives me his undivided attention and he must do the same for others. It is nice not to have a doctor sitting at a computer typing during my appointment!"

"My life has been saved by Dr. Ward!"

"My treatment has always been excellent and Dr. Ward always answers any questions I have. He is always well informed and provides good explanations. Thank you for offering a high level of care."
