About Alexandra Elizabeth Ward, MD


Dr. Ward earned her medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 2012. She completed an internal medicine residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center, where she was selected to be a chief resident. Dr. Ward then completed fellowship training in cardiology at the Jefferson Heart Institute in Philadelphia. She is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease. She is also certified in adult echiocardiography by the American Society of Echiocardiography.

Dr. Ward serves as medical director for the Riverside Women's Heart Center and is an advocate for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of women's cardiovascular disease. Her interest began during residency, when she became increasingly aware that women’s cardiovascular disease is different in presentation, diagnosis and management as compared to their male counterparts. Dr. Ward is passionate about groundbreaking treatments and therapeutic options in cardiology and encourages her patients to be actively involved in decision-making for their treatment.

Born in New York City and raised at the Jersey Shore, Dr. Ward appreciates the history of  Hampton Roads. In her free time, Dr. Ward enjoys being outside, especially at the beach, as well as spending time with family and friends.
