Specialties

Dr. Melissa L Warner has the following 2 specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

unfortunate experience

Because many patients are in rehabilitation families due to legal and/or professional requirements, the staff has immense power. To handle that responsibly would require exceptional moral balance, which Dr. Warner didn't strike me as possessing. She seemed capricious, intolerant of any questioning of her decisions, and at times gratuitously cruel. I feel my recovery was more in spite of her than because of her.

Misery loves company

While her knowledge of addiction medicine is vast, Dr Warner was extremely off-putting clinically. She was beyond condescending, and even laughed while talking to me about my diagnosis and prognosis. She was disrespectful frequently. She was moody and unpredictable. She was very haughty and unlikable. She seemed also unable to interpret visual cues. Having had a personal history battling addictions, Dr Warner seemed to be on a personally driven mission to make all patients fit her criteria and plan rather than following the DSM. I tried to heed the advice given to me about her by previous patients- say as little as possible to her, agree as much as possible, and don't ask questions. She is not someone I would ever choose in the future. Unfortunately, her words ruin a lot of promising careers, not for the protection of the the patient or society, but what often seems like a tribute to her own ego. If I wasn't forced by the hand of insurance to be at that facility, I would have quickly exited to any other facility focused on professionals.

Cold, distant, narrow minded, poor listner, poor clinician

My experience with Dr. Warner was negative. She was cold, distant and made the diagnosis and treatment plan without all the facts which lead to an inappropriate treatment plan.

Poor judgement and insight

Takes a superficial history, and then makes assumptions not based in fact. Her assessment and plan are reflexive and not well thought out.

Part of an ineffeicient and unethical facility

My son was a dually diagnosed patient at the facility where Dr. Warner is medical director. There was absolutely no effort on the part of the facility to provide continuity of patient care and my son's medical records were not even requested. He was taken off his psych meds and totally destabilized. We almost went bankrupt due to the gross medical negligence of this facility.
