Always good with *Dr. Ober.


Dr. Ober is ax excellent doctor, he is informative, he listens, he cares and shows great concern for my overall care and performance in how I am doing, he is a joy in all ways a man of great character


#9. Superb.


I have been a patient of Dr. Ober's for more than 10 years, he is an absolutely awesome care provider.


I've been seeing Dr. Ober for more than 20 years. He is an exceptional physician in that he makes sure that I understand the issues at hand, the treatments, and the importance of his guidance regarding the issues and treatments. He demonstrates genuine concern regarding me as a person and my conditions. I have recommended Dr. Ober in the past and will do so in the future. NCBH is privileged to have such a provider/teacher on staff. I actually dread the day when he decides to retire because I don't want to put my health care into the hands of anyone less than Dr. Ober.


Dr. Ober is an excellent physician and endocrinologist. I have seen him for 5+ years now and he is very friendly and professional. He has always been very helpful and encouraging regarding my diabetes at every visit, and even between visits when needed. I am very thankful to have him as my endocrinologist. Thank you Dr. Ober for your time, attention and care!


*Dr. Patrick Ober is the best I have ever met in Wake Forest in concerns, caring and getting to the issue.


Again, *Dr. Ober is excellent.


*Dr. Ober is awesome & has been for 25 + years!

*Dr. Ober is so knowledgeable & professional.




I would definitely recommend this doctor to others. I have been seeing him for 20+ years.


I received excellent care.


Having professional enter so much info. in stupid computer is intolerable. Takes away from personal care/discussion time. Honestly this is an admin.'s job. Shouldn't have computers detract from care.




always a pleasure, always informative


The absolute best doctor!


Very good.


My fiance and I had a great experience at the office we felt everyone was very nice and office very clean.


I always have a good experience when I see Dr. Ober.


Dr. Ober is excellent at what he does. He is very knowledgeable with a kind and caring personality. His sense of humor is great, as well. I had a follow-up question once I got home concerning the results of one of the tests, which I emailed to him on Dr. Ober responded very quickly with a very thorough response. I feel very fortunate to have found him.


Dr Ober had done an excellent job of reading my medical history before coming into the room with me. Also did a great job of explaining past test results and what we do going forward.


Care is the very best possible!


*Dr. Ober is absolutely the best doctor - Don't let him retire, ever!
