I first met Dr. Turpin in 2017 when I was a patient at BJC Hospital in St. Peters. I have seizures and have been under Dr. Turpin’s care since that time - he is very knowledgeable, considerate and has been responsive to my questions and concerns — I would highly recommend him. His office staff has also been excellent. Life has been quite challenging the past 12 months with the epilepsy, so I am grateful for the care Dr. Turpin and staff have provided!

Dr. Turpin is excellent. Thoroughly explained my diagnosis. Pain in my back was fixed with his help and some therapy. I would highly recommend him for anyone suffering from back pain.

0 stars if possible: Horrific bedside manor. Completely unnecessary and unprofessional. He belongs in a field that doesn't interact with people. He needs a mood stabilizer himself. I've never encountered a neurologist that rude. Absolutely no reason for it.

I have MS. Dr put me on a med that caused liver damage. Told me to stop taking it which I did. Had a flare up and went to ER as I was not able to walk. ER called him and he told them to give me low dose steroids and call his office next day for him to see me in office. Called his office and held for 75 minutes. Finally left message. Called back at 101 right after Phone on for lunch..held 40 minutes and still waiting. Next call is to find another doctor.

Not really doctor's fault, but took incredibly long time to not get checked in. Left without seeing the doctor. Now looking for another neurologist - preferably one without another company doing the booking, insurance, etc. Gosh, miss the old way without the computers getting in the way.

The office staff is wholly incompetent in insurance matters, it's very difficult to get through to the office on the phone, and Dr. Turpin gets a zero for bedside manner.

I love Dr. Turpin! He really seems to know what he's doing, unlike other Neurologists I've been to in the past. My only complaint is the long waiting time to speak to someone on the phone when I have a question.

He is a great Doctor, office staff is good and friendly. My only complaint is that they are always behind, the wait is at least 30 minutes, yet they have the audacity on their recorded reminder to state that if you are late, you may be asked to reschedule.

Dr. Turpin has poor communication skills. He does not explain the diagnosis or communicate with the patient. He could be a good doctor but how do you know if he doesn't interact with you? His office staff are friendly and try to overcome satellite for his shortcomings. I wish to see him succeed. I have never written a negative comment on anyone. Please talk to and communicate with your patients Dr. Turpin.

Doesn't ask very good questions, it's an ordeal trying to get a hold of him OR his staff on the phone. The visits are too brief. No communication between him and the oncologist.

He was the worst Doctor I have ever been to. He has a horrible bedside manner. We were there for a second visit and he did not even remember our first visit. He made us repeat information again. He blamed it on everything being on a computer and not a paper file. He couldn't remember what medication my family member was on. He was over an hour late to the appt and then checked his watch the entire 6 mins he was in there. He acted like we were bothering him by asking him questions.

Recently I received the worst patient care I have ever experienced, and that includes a drunk dentist, so my bar is pretty low. I waited an hour before I was taken back, which I understand.things get busy, stuff happens... I'm understanding of the roles that each part of the office play. However, after speaking with the nurse and then a medical student, whom I thought were great, dr.Turpin came in for just moments, had no clue of my previous history, dismissed my concerns, and just left.
