We keep Dr. Warnock very busy these days, and he always offers great suggestions in dealing with whatever the prognosis may be. The kids love the way he talks to them, on their level, and I appreciate him taking time to answer all the questions I have. I highly recommend Dr. Warnock for your orthopedic needs!

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.

Love Dr. Warnock and his whole office staff. What a dedicated, efficient, and lovely group. Everyone is always so friendly and helpful, from the front office, x-ray, the techs, the incredible PA's and of course Dr. Warnock himself. They take great care of my whole family!

K. Warnock fractured my shoulder during rotator cuff surgery and didn't even tell me. I found out 15 months later from another Dr. My shoulder is ruined. I have more pain, frozen shoulder, 4 ugly scars and allergy to anchors he put in. Shoulder replacement is the only option Dr gives at this point. I DON'T RECOMMEND HIM.

I think the doctor-patient relationship is a primary factor in good healthcare and the staff also plays a large role to ensure patients healthcare needs are meet. When I walk in Dr Warnock's office I'm greeted with a smile by Karen at the front desk. Everyone is polite and very helpful. Dr Warnock has compassion for his patients and the best bedside manner, hes a great listener and was very informative regarding my surgery. He will be my family's orthapedic dr for life.
