About Marc Andrew Ward, MD, FACS

Dr. Ward has traveled the world to train with pioneer surgeons who have pushed the frontiers of minimally invasive surgery such as Lee Swanstrom and Brice Gayet.

His philosophy of care is to get patients back to a quality of life that is better than when he first met them. For surgical patients, minimally invasive techniques are usually the best at doing just that. By developing this unique skillset, Dr. Ward is able to offer a wide array of treatments for benign and malignant conditions of the esophagus, stomach, and other areas of the abdomen.

Aside from the surgical aspect of his practice, he is active in conducting research. Dr. Ward believes there is always room to improve on the status quo and therefore uses research to improve patient care on a larger scale. By using evidence based practices and advanced surgical technology, he offers patients safe and innovative surgeries for achieving quality outcomes.

In his spare time, he enjoys being outdoors with his family, cooking and cheering for his college sports teams.

Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Ward is one of the nicest and most caring doctors I have ever seen. In a world where most doctors spend more time staring at their computer screen than they actually listen to you, Dr. Ward is a blessing. I wish all doctors could provide the patient care that he does.
