Dr. Ward has suffered from allergies for most of his life. This personal experience gives him insight into his patients’ experiences. Dr. Ward strives to help patients understand their disease and, ultimately, improve their quality of life.

One of Dr. Ward’s favorite things is treating patients of all ages and helping multiple members of the same family. He finds it especially rewarding to see kids grow up and be able to help them along the way.

Dr. Ward started a food oral immunotherapy program at KCAA. Taking care of those patients and their families has been the most rewarding experience of his professional life. The program has had a great impact and has been very rewarding.

When he’s not working with patients and families, Dr. Ward likes reading, traveling, and listening to music. He loves spending time with his wife, 2 children, and 2 greyhounds.
