Dr. Ard is a excellent physician ....excellent listening skills and great with his MI skills.


*Dr. Ard is very kind and very helpful!


He is great. Easy to talk with and very understanding.


Loved Dr Ard. Told me things to help me that no other provider in that practice suggested to me. He helped me more than all the others put together. Made me feel that I could reach my goal.


*Dr. Ard is one of the kindest people I have ever met.


In just over 6 months I have had ONE time my appointment was > 15 minutes past time, with weekly visits.


Dr. Ard is probably the most caring Doctor I've ever visited. His concern and help definitely aided me in losing the weight I needed to lose. He is understanding and takes into account all of my health issues when making recommendations.


Dr. Ard is an excellent physician! Kind, patient and understanding.


*Dr Ard revised my whole diet plan. He explained everything thoroughly to me. He is very knowledgable on the program.


very good relationship with the staff. they help and do not rush you in or out.very positive as the goad requires a lot of cheer-leading.


The doctor was outstanding. He explained issues in terms that I could understand.


I love Dr. Ard. He is kind and patient. I recommend him to all my friends.


Dr. Ard is very caring and compassionate. His "can do" attitude is infectious!


Dr. Ard is very patient about assisting me in what is a hard weight loss. He is working hard at trying to help me get this weight off in a healthy way.




Dr. Ard is a remarkable physician. I feel very lucky to be in his care.




I find it quite unusual today that Dr Ard and staff never seem to rush you out of the office. They take the time to re-assure me of any concerns I have. The Optifast plan has worked well, but it is quite radical and having a knowledgeable doctor and staff have made it possible for me to stick with it.




Dr. Ard always makes me feel comfortable, even when talking about things that are uncomfortable. I appreciate that he includes me in decision making and displays genuine respect for me and where I am in my journey. He is encouraging and supportive.


Wonderful visit. I don't know what I'm going to do without them when I reach my goal. They are my support team.


Dr. Ard is very caring and understanding of my complicated and frustrating bariatric surgery journey. He genuinely seems to want to help me be successful!
