Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I cannot attest to his clinical abilities, but I have witnessed his pure lack of professionalism. After waiting 15 minutes in a disgusting waiting room, I saw his door open and asked if we still had an appt. He asked why I would ask such a thing and I responded that it was 12:45 pm and that he was late for our 12:30 pm appt. He looked annoyed and suggested I find another doctor. Apparently, he believes his time is more important a patients and won't accept responsibility for his tardiness.

I do not like him. First of all his office is a complete mess, secondly he runs like an hour late and your just sitting in his nasty waiting room, also he acts all clever with you whenever you are meeting with him. He acts very obnoxious. All he does is ask you what you did since the last time you saw him. When you talk about your feelings with him he does not respond whatsoever. He is very rude and does not care for his patientce. I do not recommend this guy.

Dr. Patrick Ware. His office and waiting room is a filthy and absolutely disgusting rat's nest. Like a reallyHis office and waiting room is a filthy and absolutely disgusting rat's nest. Like a really bad episode of Hoarders. I hope you're ok with this because Dr. Ware is consistently late. You will be waiting over an hour guaranteed. He wears the same fishing gear vest every time I see him. Does he even bathe? Sounds like he needs his own psychiatrist. He coerces you to set up 3 meetings with h
