Dr. Turner did an excellent job working with me on my medical needs and subsequent follow up.
Very responsive, informative.
Very good experience.
Dr. Turner was very honest and explained every possible scenario about my condition. I really liked his manner and how easy he was to talk to. I was pleased with his suggested course of action and how he made sure to get my input. And I loved Amber the office support dog!
Very good experience, I learned more from him in one short visit then others I have seen.
Dr. Turner is an excellent surgeon, a good listener and is very thorough in his explanations.
