Dr. Hare has alway been warm and empathetic as well as professional

December 28, 2016

Dr Hare is awesome, would hate to see anyone else.

November 25, 2016

dr. Hare is very good I've been seeing him for years and would not even consider seeing someone new

November 01, 2016

I was told I would be given a summary at the end of the visit, but I was not and bad to call to get then. I left very confused regarding the game plan.

October 25, 2016

I do recommend Dr. Hare and this clinic quite often!!

October 25, 2016

I'm having very good pain control, and while pains are changing all the time, they are the "usual" pains and those at the forefront change each visit but are from the usual crowd. I get to meet the fellowship practitioners each time and I find that interesting. It's important for this next generation of pain practitioners to have these experiences at what appears to me to be one of the best pain clinics. It's good to see that a stable situation can be left unchanged when it's going well. I've had a lot of unsatisfactory treatment in my life and am very glad to be at this clinic where a pain patient isn't treated as a pariah.

September 02, 2016

Dr. Hare is an excellent doctor. He is caring and offers information and guidance regarding any and all of my questions or concerns. Dr. Allen was helpful and encouraging about my progress. I appreciate the team efforts made by all members who have assisted me in managing my symptoms and feeling better overall.

August 28, 2016

No one addressed my Fibromyalgia. no one seemed to care about the pain I am in.

August 23, 2016

I feared losing my status as Pain Patient, Poster Child as after many years going the clinic and having my. pain and stiffness well-controlled. Recently my neck has become very tight, limiting my range of motion and making my exercises difficult. I was referred to P.T. Lynn and anticipate undergoing TPIs. this tx plan was immediately formulated and put into action. I appreciated the respect for my. opinion and truly feel like a partner in my treatment.i think I may copy this survey and paste it after my next survey in six months as my appreciation for the excellent care I receive never wavers.

August 01, 2016

Doctor Hare is the Best!

July 15, 2016

He is very engaged with my care, which is very important to me.

June 10, 2016

this continues to be a superb organization ... very professional and caring, I have high confidence in this group

May 28, 2016

I received the feeling everyone involved wanted to do what the could for me, and I felt more like an individual rather than just another case

May 23, 2016

It was only an evaluation. They didn't have a treatment plan yet.

May 22, 2016

looking forward to working with the providers in this clinic. they were all very helpful and caring.

April 29, 2016

Always a positive experience. A little confusing when it came to peeing in the cup. I had to come back a second day.

February 13, 2016

I've only seen Dr. Hare this once--but already he strikes me as the most empathetic, kind doctor I've encountered at University Health Care--it's not even close.

January 19, 2016

Dr. Hare and his interns are kind, professional, informative and caring. I appreciate the care I have received from Dr. Hare and the whole team of care givers doctors, therapists and interns. Dr. Hare is wonderful.

December 14, 2015

Dr Hare seems like a very good doctor and is working with me very well due to financial issues with my visits. He didn't need to do this at all but, seems to actually care about my problems. I like him a lot and am hoping our goal can be met.

October 27, 2015

Dr. Hare was extremely positive and optimistic that he could help me with my condition. his positivity was like a breath of fresh air. We have been told by other doctors that there is nothing they can do and good luck before they sent us packing. At least now, there is hope that I will be active once again.

September 23, 2015

I really appreciate Dr. Hare and his care. He listens and he considers my concerns. He is understanding of my frustrations in the process of maintaining symptoms and being able to live my life. I really appreciate and value his input. His students have all been excellent as well. They have been informed and caring. I am very grateful to Dr. Hare for his care and the care of the entire team of providers.

September 21, 2015

think this was one of the best team that I have had all of them

August 28, 2015

very good experiece

July 13, 2015

this was a very bad experience, later looked Dr Hare up on the internet and apparently I am not the first one to experience poor care for him.

June 14, 2015

Dr Hare as always been helpful and concerned about my treatment and the residence which he has are very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions or concerns that I have

June 11, 2015

Dr. Habib was extremely helpful and kind. I felt that he was listening and responding to my concerns and questions. The intern Eli was also very helpful. Dr. Hare of course is wondeful. I appreciate his care and his professionalism.

March 24, 2015

I met with a fellow and we talked about a plan and some next steps, Dr. Hare came in and basically stopped the entire plan and does not seem to listen to my concerns all that much sadly.

February 06, 2015

Doctors seemed very genuine individuals who were there to help and make a difference

January 31, 2015

Dr. Shwarz and Dr. Hare offered solutions to my pain. The lidicaine patches worked wonders. I appreciated how both doctors offered concern and care for the future with my concerns on the my recent visit.

January 10, 2015

Listened to problems I was having and gave me multiple options to relieve pain I was experiencing.

January 08, 2015

Totally opposite previous experience. THAT guy should NEVER touch a patient !!!!!!

December 18, 2014

Dr. Hare has ALWAYS spent as much time as needed with me. He is so patient and understanding.

December 12, 2014

very nice visit

December 07, 2014

Good Experience

October 02, 2014

Nurse was very interested in my hobbies and activities. Dr. Hare has become a trusted friend and advisor. He recalls details about my medical history often better than I can.

September 18, 2014

The team approach they have is wonderful!

July 25, 2014

Since I have been a patient for 10 years I have a great working relationship with Dr. Hare. He understands that if I'm coming in it's because I'm really in pain. He has worked really well with me to keep my meds to the minimum and that my goal is to be med free and be as close to pain free as possible. We have worked together well over the years with the same clear idea of my goal.

July 21, 2014

Always Good

July 15, 2014

I have seen Dr. Hare for over 10 years he has always been helpful and concerned about my care.

July 14, 2014


July 10, 2014

Good experience.

May 16, 2014


April 18, 2014

We had 3 appointments. One with Lynn Barck, one with Dr. Hare, and one with Dr. Okifuji. Our appointments with Lynn Barck and Dr. Okifuji were EXCEPTIONAL. I would rate them both a (5) very good all the way down. Dr. Hare was a different story. Not only am I a health care provider, but we have been dealing with my daughters illness for over a year. He was nice, but it was obvious he had not even looked at her chart. He asked no questions about her history and talked about the possibility of a diagnosis that she was given over a year ago. He said he couldn't help her, but he didn't even know about her diagnosis or what we had already done for her. I would say that even to a layperson his visit was embarrassing. If it was not necessary to see him to receive care from the other two very professional and thorough providers, I would not return. Next time, I recommend he at least read the patient diagnosis before speaking with us about something completely unrelated to her care. Please note, I could not be more pleased with the care from Lynn Barck and Dr. Okifuji.

April 14, 2014

I really felt good about how I was treated. The team of Doctors, Physical Therapist, and Counselor were all very kind and Compassionate to my Condition.

March 03, 2014

Dr Hare seemed very kind and caring about my concerns and questions!

January 10, 2014

I would not recommend doctor Hare to anybody. He does not care about what the patience is saying or feeling and it's really hard headed. I've never been to a doctor as bad as he is.

December 15, 2013


November 25, 2013

All good.

August 19, 2013

Very understanding. Explained options clearly.

August 15, 2013

It is great to be able discuss any topic with out fear.

July 08, 2013

it was all very good

June 25, 2013

I had an excellent experience w Dr Hare last visit. I was very concerned about my need for more pain medicine and the feelings of guilt. He spend time w me and helped me work thru my issues. I left feeling very cared for.

June 22, 2013


June 11, 2013

My Dr's are always professional and treat me like family. They discussed options with me and made me feel like my well being was the most important thing. I absolutely LOVE my doctors!

May 17, 2013

I don't think I clearly understood the condition and what prognosis is and what my options are.

May 17, 2013

I feel the doctors really care about how I am doing.

April 24, 2013

professional all the way

April 05, 2013

Felt more possitive about this experience after 2nd visit. More settled in keeping this going.

April 01, 2013

I always enjoy my six-month follow-ups with Dr. Hare. He is professional yet warm and friendly.

March 29, 2013

The doctors I saw - Dr. Pittman, Lynn the PT, and the Psych Dr. Akiko Fugi were all very comforting to me. I have been struggling with pain issues for many years, particularly the past four and felt hope for the future for the first time! I am looking forward to meeting with them again and Dr. Hare for them to introduce a plan to help me deal with my pain .

March 22, 2013

Physical Therapist very knowledgeable and thorough. I would have liked explanation at the time about what the findings meant.

March 15, 2013

Everyone has been great

January 11, 2013

The staff; nurses, doctors were great to work with.

January 10, 2013

worse doctors visit I ever had. Nothing has been explained to me.

January 07, 2013

I feel I am in the right place for my needs

December 27, 2012

Dr. Hare is a great physcian and a real partner in the remediation of my chronic pain. His concern and compassion is equaled only by his professionalism.

December 26, 2012

no service given. only pre appt for followup two weeks later. very poor concern about patient

November 30, 2012

Treatment plan still TBD so too soon to say. Hope i AM happy with it enough to refer others to your clinic. I am worried about this beixng short-term care for chronic conditions though.

November 23, 2012

Dr. Hare is awesome and the rest of the staff are extremely attentive. I would have never believed that I would be feeling as well as I am now. I still have pain and with Elaine a the rest of the staff I now have a life and am able to do some activities including some yard work which is one of my favorite pastimes. Thank you!

November 16, 2012

Dr. Hare has always been real good with me and understanding. Its hard now days to get a dr. to understand you when you are really in pain, Dr Hare listens to me and believes me.

November 15, 2012

actual care provider spent 5 minutes.

September 27, 2012

I believe Dr Hare to be one of the best dr's I've ever worked with. He's very compassionate, helpful and takes whatever time he needs to spend with me to address my questions or concerns. I never feel rushed by him.

August 27, 2012

Drs. Walter and Hare were wonderful. I appreicated Dr. Hare popping in afterwards to thank me for coming in, and to apologize for the back-up/delays. He was incredibly genuine, and that meant a lot to me.

August 26, 2012

Just love and hearts and flowers

July 20, 2012


June 11, 2012

Dr. Hare is always smiling and frankly reminds me of jolly old Saint Nick.

June 04, 2012

I have already recommended others

May 08, 2012

Just like Family

March 27, 2012

No complaints whatsoever. I have always received excellent care at the clinic.

February 13, 2012

If I had my choice I wouldn't see him any more he is just in simple terms rude!

February 07, 2012

I felt the overall experience was very good with the exception that I felt that the delay in seeing the doctors was too long.
