Everything about this appointment was 5 Stars! From scheduling my first appointment with Karen. She went out of her way to help with my referral and get me in ASAP. Dr. Warnock is amazing! He’s Seems to be brilliant at his profession. He is so personable and funny! He is the only ortho doctor who has tested the flexibility in my right arm and shoulder and immediately found exactly where the pain is. Then he showed me on my last year MRI and X-Ray today what is causing me so much pain. Calcific Tendinitis which is calcium deposits on the rotator cuff. No surgery required. Just treat the pain and limit use. I have already recommended to others.

Dr Warnock and his staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. They are clearly experts in their field and clearly explained the causes of my issues and what my options were to improve my conditions. I saw Dr. Warnock for an issue with my shoulder; after the MRI and X-rays were done, he explained how physical therapy and a regiment of stretching were the best options to improve the pain. I also saw him for follow up on a torn meniscus injury from 5 years ago. He clearly explained my why additional surgery would not help the problem and prescribed low impact cardio in replace of running. I would highly recommend Dr. Warnock and his staff for anyone with sports related injuries.

Dr Warnock was in surgery but his PA saw me. I got scheduled for PT and later that day his office called to say Dr Warnock wanted to see me personally. Fast forward to the day of therapy, Dr Warnock also examined me and gave his diagnosis. The PT team and office staff are friendly and professional and use technology to transmit my rehab program. I have always wanted a dedicated Sports Med MD as I am a weekend warrior. I highly recommend Dr Warnock for your sports injuries needs.

You will never find a more kind, honest, compassionate, and knowledgeable doctor than Dr. Warnock. Five stars is not high enough. He helped me with an injury to my hand, and I am so pleased with the care that I received. I have seen him help numerous people and students at my school. I have also seen him interact with his own children. There is no better dad than Dr. Warnock. He is beloved by every one that he meets.

I have been to Dr Warnock for my shoulder, my knee and broken wrist. Over the past 5 years he has proven to be an exceptional physician/surgeon over and over and over again. I referred my sister-in-law for her knee surgery and she raves about him! Anyone who uses Dr Warnock is very fortunate. I strongly recommend Dr. Warnock

Kenneth Warnock did my knee surgery that entailed a reconstruction of my ACL and repair of a torn meniscus. His bedside manner was excellent and he was willing to answer all of my questions very thoroughly. He was also willing to get back to me ASAP after the surgery if I had any questions about my recovery, and helped me find amazing physical therapists. He has also checked on me periodically since then to make sure I'm happy with my results, and I definitely am! Thank you Dr. Warnock!

I came to Dr. Warnock after seeing several other physicians who did not know what was wrong with my arm. Dr. Warnock took the time to hear all of my symptoms. After being evaluated, he concluded that my arm pain was not Ortho and recommended me seeing another specialist. After months of tests and procedures, Dr. Warnock was able to help me finally find the answer to my health issue. I appreciate your time and consideration. Your office staff is also friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Warnock to anyone looking for great care.

Dr. Warnock is a rare caring physician! He deserves 10 STARS! I took my elderly mother to him for a 2nd opinion, after the first one wanted to do surgery before even seeing an X-ray! Dr. Warnock said not needed. Years later she is still doing great! I see him for different issues related to other health issues which caused hip and knee pain. He was surprisingly knowledgeable about my autoimmune disorders! I can't say enough good about Dr. Warnock and his caring staff.

Dr. Warnock and his staff are simply amazing. They make sure they answer all your questions and speak directly to the patient (even if a child) to ensure you completely understand your injury and treatment. Billing department is a bit of chaos but I will deal with it for the care received.

My family has been seeing Dr. Warnock for almost 7 years for a variety of sports related injuries with our boys. Dr. Warnock, Byron, and the entire staff at the office is so caring, professional, and sincere. The patient experience they provide is first class. I am a nurse, and I can assure you I have not seen anything this outstanding. It is quick and easy to get an appointment with the office when needed. The staff is accessible and responsive which is so important to me as a patient or the Mother of a patient. Dr. Warnock and Byron spend time explaining everything from treatment options to what to expect next to making sure your child is prepared for the days ahead. He repaired 2 tears on the right shoulder of my 14 year old and Byron got it all scheduled so quick to accommodate us. Shortly after, my Mom had fallen and shattered her hand. He did hand surgery on my Mom and her experience was no different than mine. We are very grateful for Dr. Warnock and his staff.
