Larry J. Warner, M.D. (March 10, 1942 to December 7, 2020)
Dr. Larry J. Warner, a dedicated and respected dermatologist of over 47 years, will always be remembered and cherished at Warner & Van Meter Dermatology. We deeply honor his medical expertise and continue to celebrate and admire his kind, caring nature, and passion for helping others.
"Dr. Larry" was born on March 10, 1942, in Frederick, Maryland. He graduated from St. Johns Literary Institute in Frederick, University of Maryland College Park and University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore. He served in the U.S. Air Force at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. He completed his dermatology residency at University of Maryland Hospital in Baltimore and returned to Frederick to practice.
He was a dermatologist, friend, and even family practitioner to generations of families. He loved seeing patients and wanted that to be his retirement.
"Treat people the way you want to be treated" was his guiding maxim, and he was known for being quiet but personable, hard-working but easy-going, and intelligent but humble. Outside of work, he enjoyed being with family, studying languages and the serenity of working at his farm.
