Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Pediatrician sent us to Turkish with our 5 week old to be seen for projectile vomiting. He said “you’re over feeding her. If you sit around & over stuff your face with burgers, shakes, & chicken wings, you’d be projectile vomiting too”. He didn’t check her stool or do anything. Literally just said that about our UNDER average weight baby who was breast & formula fed. Told us when she is screaming & crying in discomfort to “play white noise as loud as possible & she will eventually stop”. We saw another GI ASAP who said she was NOT being over fed & immediately tested her stool & found blood. Finally, after many exams/tests, new GI was able to diagnose her with a severe milk protein allergy as well as severe reflux. In the end, it took prescription formula in conjunction with two prescription antacids & one OTC antacid (had to alternate meds with each feeding) to finally give our baby SOME relief- also had to start on solids early which was when she was finally “cured”.

Dr. Turkish tends to be a bit on the rough side, and we did a had a minor encounter but I can't deny he's a great Doctor and very good in the GI field. My son for 6 months had IBS with diarrhea for 6 months. I was devastated and scared for my son but he found a medicine and with that treatment my son's 6 month diarrhea went away. I highly recommend him.
