What People Say About Dr. Marcus Ware, MD

Dr. Ware was a very attentive surgeon when I first saw him. I had two failed spinal fusions with him. The 1st fusion failed do to the disc cage collapsing. The 2nd fusion he placed larger screws and another disc cage and that caused even more pain. I was unable to walk and the pain was Excruciating! He ordered a spinal cordstimulator that didn’t help.I was told that the manufacturers of the disc cage would be a the surgery and that wasn’t true. He began to distance himself from me. Disappointed

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.

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.

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.
