Patient Comments (2)
in Mount Kisco, NY |
Dr Turtel is an exceptional orthopedic surgeon. He operated on both my right and left rotator muscles and completely restored me to full mobility. He restored a meniscus tear in my knee, and I was back to full activity within a few weeks. But he is also an exceptional person, caring, accessible and runs his practice in the same personal manner. He returns phone calls, emails in person to ask how I am doing, and this carries over to his friendly, completely professional staff.

I highly recommend Dr. Turtel without hesitation. I saw him several years ago for knee surgery and it's been great ever since. And I returned to him last month for a shoulder tear. He operated on that two weeks ago and I am already on the mend. Dr. Turtel understands the particular needs and frustrations of athletes, and he is as knowledgeable as he is experienced. I have never felt rushed through appointments and have always been respected and valued as a patient.
