Ben Warner, MD
Ben Warner, MD, says one of the most important skills for a pediatrician has little to do with medical knowledge. "We all believe it is important for doctors to be competent and knowledgeable," Dr. Warner explained. "I believe it is just as important for pediatricians to be good listeners. We must gain the trust of our patients and their families, and we need to be able to care for their physical and emotional needs."
Dr. Warner understands that being a good parent or caregiver often involves asking a lot of questions and sharing concerns. "At each visit, my goal is for parents to leave with the feeling that they are better able to care for their child and their questions are answered," he said.
While Dr. Warner enjoys most every aspect of pediatrics, he is especially interested in issues related to domestic and international adoptions. "I also enjoy helping children and parents dealing with developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorders and Down syndrome," he shared.
A lifelong North Carolinian, Dr. Warner spent time in Asheville, Charlotte and Chapel Hill before moving to Winston-Salem for medical school. "My wife and I planned to move to South Carolina where she grew up when I was done with school," he recalled, "but ultimately the charm of Winston-Salem was too great to leave. We now love living here with our daughter, Annie Kate, and our two dogs, Maddie and Camp."
