      He is a wonderful doctor who will tell it to you straight but in a kind and caring way because he knows having a bariatric procedure done is a huge life change for his patients and they could use all the support they can get. I had my surgery in June and my scars are healing so fast I imagine in another month or so they will be almost invisible! Dr Turnquest and his staff are extremely trustworthy and he is available almost 24/7 via phone to answer any of his patients questions.

      Gaul bladder removal and had stones in the tube and Gaul bladder. It took longer than expected but he did an excellent job. I like that he explained every step before and after. I would recommend him to everyone.

      He was everything that my friend said he was: professional, to the point, warm, and friendly.
      in Montgomery, TX |
      Dr Turnquest was rude and unprofessional. Also, he took out the wrong part of my colon and I had to have a second surgery by a different dr. Needless to say I am quite unhappy.

      I've been under Dr. Turnquest's care for 1 1/2 years. I am probably his nightmare patient with numerous complications and he still smiles when he come into the room. I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
