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.

Just got back from seeing Elaine Turner, M.D. Wish I read the reviews first, but the appointment was just made by my primary yesterday, so no time. Walked in and was not greeted. Stood there and was finally asked if I needed a shot. This was asked by someone behind the counter who didn't even look up. I said no and I had an appointment with the Dr. After 30 seconds of silence, she asked for my info. Never said hello, how are you, good morning.... nothing. She sat me down with a pile of paper work. Got called back and asked a few questions by a nurse who was equally unpleasant. When the Dr. came in, she was exactly how all others have described. Rude, condescending, short with me, snobbish and just not a pleasant person at all. Didn't seem to care one bit about how I was doing. She wrote down a regiment and said she would give it to the nurse who would wright it up for me and give me the info about labcorp. I sat there for 15 minutes and wondered if I was really supposed to go out and

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!
