Oklahoma City, OK |
Dr. Ware is comparable with other doctors in his profession however his choice of nurses and his expectations of them seem to be lacking. Don't expect too much from his nurse.
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

My mother broke her neck and saw Dr. Ware. He's very nice and assured us that someone would contact us the next day for her to be fitted for a neckbrace I have made countless telephone calls to his office and spoken with several members of his staff and here four weeks later no help at all. I would never recommend this physician to anyone because the quality of care seems to not be even near the radar of their priorities.
We are very concerned to hear about this encounter and truly apologize for your recent experience. Please email connect@ochsner.org with your phone number and the location where you were seen so we can have a patient relations liaison reach out to you personally. Thank you for your time.

Would definitely recommend Dr. Ware! He listens and explains very thoroughly what needed to be done. Did not feel rushed at all!

I seen Dr. Ware when he was at Tulane Medical Center. I have Chairi Malformation and I am having alot allot of trouble finding a Dr to treat me properly. I tried making an appointment with Dr Ware at Ochsner but they told me they don't accept Louisiana Health Care Connection. I really need to see him. I am having multiple complications and the Dr I was seeing that has been treating me for about the last 5 years told me that I am a very tough case and highly recommends me get a second opinion

Dr. Ware may be good at what he does and was attentive on days leading to surgery but I will say between himself and his office the bedside manner and being available for a patients need after surgery is pretty much nonexistent. Once he's done, I guess he's done. Very disappointing that cannot get any advice, answers, or concern when reaching out.
