Dr. Turbay is truly amazing! While his bedside manner could use work, he is certainly very educated and knows what he is doing. I have seen 2 cardiologists prior and I won't change providers again. I am able to obtain all my diagnostic testing in his office and was even able to obtain a my clearance for surgey in less than 2 months. (Other office asked for at least 3 months) Very happy here.

Hard to give a score for anything, because as far as Dr Turbay, he is an awesome Dr and my Dad loves him. When it comes to his staff, they have no compassion for the patients. My Dad gets treated horrible. They have attempted to call to get prescriptions called in and they have literally hung up on my Dad. Never do they call back when needed and never call to reschedule an appointment because they won't answer!!

I had a really poor service, worst Doctor I have ever seen. I am ex-military and deal with the VA doctors which should tell you about the quality of care. Told him I have a hip injury which means I have issues doing more then walk, let alone run and he scheduled me to do a stress test on a trendmill. Not sure if he understood me but mentioned it several times. Did not look at any documents I brought more then a passing glance. Left feeling depressed and dejected.
