The doctor of Westown's clinic White Capsule. Very methodical, he's very strict on himself and on others. His skills as a doctor are sound and the town's inhabitants rely on him. Without being frugal with his effort, he studies new medicine everyday. Though he's usually found in the clinic, he goes to the Garden Grill with Wayne to eat at mealtimes.
Spoiler warning: The following may contain important story spoilers.
Ford had a loveless family and his parents never cared for him, only telling him to study to be a doctor ever since he could remember. He never had a chance to learn and experience humanly love and bond from his parents, thus why he has problems with understanding and showing affection sometimes, and has generally awkward social skills.
Moreover, his parents were also a messy good for nothing bunch (stated by Hashimoto himself in his column inside the guidebook) and that has led Ford to be a very tidy person since he was young as he had no other choice but to clean after his parents. Also, Ford has slightly longer lines when he breaks up with you where he advices you to choose someone who doesn't gamble and drink as your next partner, leading to a fan theory that his parents might been one to gamble and drink.
As revealed in one of the Official Guidebooks, his parents separated when he was very young and at first, he was put under the custody of his mother. However, after experiencing certain situation that also had led him being a germophobic and tidy freak he is now, he went to live with his father later on. The player will learn later that Ford's mother's messiness had led to a fire accident during his childhood and ever since the day of accident, he will become restless when everything is not tidy and orderly. After he became a doctor, Ford has never seen his father again, stating that his family never really talk much to each other to begin with, but they do still exchange letters in rare cases.
He has decided to never get married (until you choose to pursue him) for some reason and will become intrigued to see that some people can actually be happy when they are married after seeing Brad's and Male MC's married life. Curiously, out of all the regular candidates, Ford is the only one who says how "The three of you will build a loving family together", when you give birth to his child, while all other candidates will say the exactly same thing about how "The three of you will make many fun memories together".His wish for building a loving family might have been caused by how he came from a broken family himself and the game producer Hashimoto mentioned in an extra column inside the perfect guidebook how Ford would actually be a 'pretty normal' person if not for what he has experienced from his parents.
End Spoilers: It's safe now!

Dense Doctor (鈍感なドクター, Donkan na Doctor) is Ford's grey heart event.
If player has befriended him up to 2 hearts and above, Ford will heal the player's stamina back to full for free if they don't have enough money (1000 G) to use his healing service. This free heal can only be done once a day, though.
If a female player who dates or marries Ford collapsed due to having her stamina emptied, what Ford will say to the player when she wakes up will be different to what he will say to player who doesn't date or marry him, showing more concern to his lover/wife's well-being.
In the Miranda's Friend Event [Miranda's Band], there are two different set of animations available for Ford during the scene where the player persuades him to join the band and which scene will play is depending on player's relation status with him. If player is a male or girl but not dating/married to Ford, player avatar will make a crying animation in attempt to make unwilling Ford changing his mind and joining the orchestra. If the player is dating/married to him, Ford will be hesitant at first before slowly agreeing to his lover/wife's plea and player avatar will kiss him as thanks.
He is the second bachelor who is not wearing his glasses on his wedding day. The first being Allen, from A New Beginning.
