About Gary Ward


Personal Statement
“I was born and grew up in Poplar Bluff, Mo. After I completed my medical training, I returned to practice Family Medicine in Poplar Bluff, MO at Kneibert Clinic. In 2001, I moved to Doniphan, Mo and started practicing medicine at Ripley County Medical and Samuel Medical Clinic in Doniphan, which are now part of Southeast Health of Ripley Co. In 2007 I left to practice with the USAF 15th Medical Group, in Columbus, Mississippi. After completing my year at the USAF Base, I returned to Poplar Bluff and joined the Primary Care Staff at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center, where I have practiced until joining Southeast Health and resuming practice of Family Medicine in Doniphan, MO.

I'm experienced in all aspects of Family Medicine, from Pediatrics thru Geriatrics. I also have several 1000's of hours of Emergency and Urgent Care Medicine. The last 8 years my main focus has been chronic diseases of adult patient's at the VA Medical Center in Poplar Bluff, Mo.

During my off time, I spend time with Family. We go camping, 4-wheeling, boating with our grandkids. I'm an avid outdoors person. I deer hunt, fish, and floating on Current River. I am excited about joining Southeast Health and practicing medicine once again in Doniphan and Southeast Missouri.”
