Provider Bio

Dr. Ward is Board Certified in Family Medicine with advanced training in Bio-Identical Hormone Treatment, Functional Medicine and Addiction Medicine. He practiced for more than 30 years in Kentucky, before moving to Utah in 2015.

Dr. Ward was raised in suburban Chicago, Illinois (Glen Ellyn) and then attended college at Iowa State University from 1973-1977. Class work focused on Pre-med with a concentration in cultural anthropology. He returned to Chicago and attended medical school, at the University of Illinois.

He completed his residency in Family Medicine at the University of Cincinnati where he was recognized as the CIBA resident of the year. He started a rural practice in nearby Butler Kentucky (population 550). He continued working in Kentucky, near the Cumberland Mountains in Berea Kentucky and then decided to relocate in 2015 to Utah when he married a Provo, Utah resident. He and his wife Diane, along with their 3 children continue, to live in Provo.

Dr. Ward has always had an interest in holistic medicine. He has continued to make home visits since his training in the early days. He sees the patient as part of a family unit as well as their cultural and genetic background. He also has advanced training in Functional Medicine, which applies principles of natural remedies to traditional medicine. This allows complex medical problems to be treated together more easily, instead of a list of issues separately. He has focused on treating fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, and adrenal insufficiency. Dr. Ward takes a special interest in the well-child care, as well as elder preventive care services.

Dr. Ward has loved the outdoors in Utah since moving here. He enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, camping, and sailing. He also dedicates his time to his local Scout group as a leader in Provo Utah and enjoys woodworking in his spare time.

Dr. Ward is an experienced Family Physician with a diverse background which includes academic teaching, over 15 clinical research trials (working as lead physician), and clinical work in hospitals and out-patient settings.

He has advanced training and experience over 35 years in complementary medicine and natural approaches to health problems which often do not respond well to traditional measures. These therapies include bio-identical hormones, amino acids, diet measures, and nutraceutical products.

Dr. Ward has 10 children and 9 grandchildren. He enjoys hiking, sailing, and camping with his wife Diane in Utah. He is the author of the book Healthy Cells, Healthy Life, recently published in 2017.
