Ratings for Dr. William R. Ford
He was very unhelpful and dismissve of my concerns. I had been increasingly tired with the pregnancy and having been anemic before with pregnancies asked if they could check my iron levels again. He responsed that they had been fine in January so he didn't see that being an issue, despite that it was now the end of April. Also, as a patient looking to do a VBAC he discouraged me greatly against it even though all the other doctors at the practice were encouraging and supportive. He actually used scare tactics to try and get me to change my mind by listing all the possible worst case scenarios. Then he actually suggested I travel to Cleburn, TX for care and delivery to an office there. Never mind the fact that it would be at least a six hour drive, one way, from where I live. And when I saw one of the other doctors they listened and tested my blood and I was indeed low on iron.
Dr. Ford is amazing! I was really hesitant at first because he was so new to Ponca, but he is the most gentle caring doctor I have ever been to! He was not pushy, and listened to what I wanted/expected and helped me achieve that! I am grateful for such a wonderful doctor when delivering my 4th baby. He made this the easiest recovery and best birthing experience I have had so far. The only thing that was very frustrating was the office staff...they took over 5 months to bill out my first visit and I have still yet to receive any bills 10 weeks after I have delivered.
I used Dr. Ford in Texas. I love him. I do not trust many people however I do trust him. So much that I am tempted to call his new office in OK for a conference for some advice. And even drive there if it comes to down to me having to do something. I have many health problems before I became pregnant and He I never worried about if I was being taking care of or not. I trust him completely
Dr. Ford is the best.. He literally saved my sons life. at 1am he made it to the hospital in 5 mins to take my baby by csection.. Also he had me come in 2x a week to check on my little one.. one time i couldn't make it in on a Thursday so Dr.f came to the hospital good Friday to see me even tho his office was closed.. he knew i wad high risk n my baby could b coming any day.. sure enough that following Tuesday at 1:41am my baby was born by csection .. im lucky he asked us to stay at the hospital because if he didn't my son may not have been here today.. He us a very honest and reliable And trust worthy man. i only wish he would have stayed in tx so he could deliver the baby i have on the way now
I found out I had a miscarriage and this is not what had upset me. I asked him to see why I've had to with in 4 months of each other. he said it was just probably just from my smoking. He should of ran test... Also he is so creepy too quiet. Oh and to top everything off he gave me Loratabs and I'm allergic to codeine yet he proceeded to tell me it would be fine. He asked me what make you think your allergic? Well my throat swells I get hives and I ****for days afterward YET HE STILL SENDS ME HOME WITH THEM. I honestly hate the man with a passion. Don't go to him.
I went there to have a procedure done left there not having it done and being asked some very personal questions that didn't have anything to do with why I was there. Was there having a cancer check and left the office feeling like I had an std. Do not recommend him and will never go back I am hoping my regular doctor steps in as what he requested to be done wasn't
Dr. Ford is a good doctor. I think he cares about his patients. Sometimes he seems more human to me than doctor like. Not all bad really! He delivered my daughter by c-section and did a great job. I got the feeling that the nurses didn't like him for some reason, but who knows why??? He has six kids of his own I think. I've always been treated kindly by Dr. Ford and his staff.
