Douglas Ward, MD

I received my medical degree from Loyola University Medical School in Chicago and completed a residency in Emergency Medicine in Dayton, Ohio at Wright State University.  After practicing Emergency Medicine for 22 years, I joined my previous partners at The Vein Specialists to treat patients with vein disease.

Initially I lived in Bloomington/Normal while attending Illinois State University to obtain a degree in Computer Science.  After completing medical school and residency, I returned to the area where I have lived for 17 years with my wife, Stephanie, and our two children, Jake and Lexi.  My hobbies include fishing, astronomy, traveling, and spending time with my family.

I have served as the Chairman and Director of Emergency Medicine at both hospitals in Bloomington/Normal, EMS director of the McLean county region, and participated on the board of the local Red Cross.

I joined The Vein Specialists as I wanted more time with patients and could not pass up the opportunity to work with my past partners.  Patients are amazed with the results and I wanted to be part of it.

Currently, I am in a fellowship in Phlebology with The Vein Specialists and treating patients alongside Drs. Bohn, Nielsen, Castillo, and Wright.
