26/05/14 5 5 5 5 After surgery two years ago I am still grateful to Dr. Warren and his staff that I can take part in all the activities I was unable to do prior to my surgery. Dr. Warren listened and answered any questions I had. I am thankful for his tremendous abilities as a surgeon and his confidence made me feel reassured.

17/10/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Warren is an amazing surgeon and fixed chronic shoulder instability for me. I had had surgeries that were not successful. All of my interactions were with Dr. Warren not residents. He was very thorough and professional in diagnosing and treating the problem. I found his bedside manner reassuring and considerate. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to return to an active life after a shoulder injury.

30/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Warren fixed what no other doc wanted to touch. He fixed an unfixable shoulder problem and 5 years later I'm better than ever. If you want someone to coddle you, go to a therapist...if you want to get fixed, go to Dr. Warren.

17/02/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Warren is fantastic. He did a reverse shoulder replacement on my right shoulder in June of 09 and I am planning to start playing tennis again in two months (with Dr. W's blessing). The care was terrific and everyone was very kind and helpful. My result is fantastic. I have full mobility and strenght of my shoulder. Dr. W. gave me plenty of time to ask questions and to explain. I travelled from Houston to have this surgery done as I wanted someone with experience in this fairly new and rather uncommon surgery. Three stars and a huge thank you to Dr. Warren and his staff.

04/05/08 2 2 1 3 by far the most arrogant doctor that I have ever seen. Very impressed with himself. In spite of that, after my muscle transfers for irreparable rotator cuff repair, I still can't lift my wrist. He referred me to Dr. Weiland, a phenomenal hand surgeon. So the moral is that creepy guys can send you to really great doctors. A happy ending indeed.

24/04/08 1 3 1 2 This doctor has a reputation among orthopedic patients as being one of the least liked doctors. He treats patients as they were a piece of machinery -- not human beings. I came to consult with him whether I should have ACL knee surgery, and instead I became a study subject for his post resident assistant. He didn't he hear me out at all as to why I made an appointment to see him. He put me through an unnecessary x-ray which is not healthy since I brought him an MRI film of my knee, and only ended up wasting my money and my time so I sued him in small claims court so he didn't profit from my visit due to his loss of time even though in his position of Chief Surgeon of HSS he has access to the hospital's malpactrice law firm. I guess nepotism goes a long way at the Hospital of Special Surgery because based on the way he treats patients he shouldn't even have a modest practice. Yet at HSS he has the title of Chief Surgeon which makes him the highest ranking doctor in the hospital.  Respond
