Bio: Dr. Tye Ward received his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from Kansas City University of Medical and Biosciences in May 1999, and completed his residency at Memorial Hospital Peninsula at Ormond Beach Florida in June of 2002. Dr. Ward decided to pursue a career in family medicine because he wanted to help people while at the same time be challenged intellectually. Dr. Ward grew up watching his father take care of people as a surgeon and saw how much he loved his job.
Dr. Ward chose to join NeoHealth, in January of 2011, after practicing in the Tulsa metro area for the 7 years prior to his hire at NeoHealth, and seeing Oklahoma consistently rank highest/worst in the nation for number of residents with heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Dr. Ward wants to try and make a difference in these numbers, and what better way to have an effect than to come back to his hometown and to an area where physicians are actually needed.
When not working Dr. Ward enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, running, reading and enjoying the outdoors.
