Agreed with above reviews that she comes off rude (read: short with you to prioritize time to sicker patients) and rushes sometimes, however she is spectacularly knowledgeable and has helped me beyond what any other ever has. I'd rather have a rude doc who knows what she's doing than a nice one who does nothing. Advocate for yourself before taking it out in a review. Patients need reviews too, and one that doesnt speak up sufficiently doesnt help their own diagnosis.

Horrible! She is unprofessional and very rude. I will not be returning, and have cancelled my follow up. It's time for her to retire.

If I could leave a zero star rating, I would. I took my son in for an allergy test. After briefly meeting with Dr. Elaine Turner, she immediately left the room and began talking about me, very loudly to the staff of nurses. Only after realizing how loud she was did the nurse tell her to speak quietly... At which time she began to whisper. How incredibly disrespectful and unprofessional. She also spoke in a very demeaning and condescending manner. If her poor professionalism and behavior represents the behavior of the other staff and physicians, this practice is HORRIBLE! Do not waste your time.

Dr. Turner used several racial micro- aggressions during our session in regards to my knowledge of allergies, medical testing already preformed, my insurance carrier and type, etc. In addition to talking over me while explaining prior medical testing and diagnoses relevant to current situation and the validity of my statement in regards to severe allergens and symptoms from exposure to allergens. Did not explain why secondary testing was medically necessary with (+) in office reaction.

Dr. Turner kept trying to walk out before I was done asking my few questions. I had a major allergic reaction last weekend and she said I may never know what caused it and didn't seem to be paying attention to my concerns. Then a staff member said they didn't know I had new insurance even after I put it on the sign in form and they scanned my new card. They also put the wrong code on my lab Corp form so I had to contact them again.and wait for them to fax a new one. Do not recommend!
