Dr. Turk provides excellent care. She listens to the patient and works with the patient to develop a plan of care that works for both the patient and the Dr. Turk. She spends quality time with her patients.

I have been coming to FHCP for 10 or 11 years now and the care has always been top-shelf. They are friendly and knowledgeable and even with rushed, fast-pace or medical care today they still treat you like family. Thank you Cindy for the excellent care today while I was in for a pre-op physical. This is my first review of FHCP and Cindy is a big reason why also and as usual Dr. Turk always makes me feel at home and well cared for.

Dr. Turk's office is unprofessional. I received a rude receptionist on the phone prior to my visit, then there were technical issues when I arrived BEFORE my scheduled appointment. I waited over 30 min for an appt only to get my prescriptions refilled. This is unacceptable. Also, I overheard the doctor yell over, asking who was going to assist me. The list goes on. Basically, I was in an appt for an hour which should have taken 20 min, and no one was prepared at any point. I will not return.

My husband and I left because of locked doors when having appointments, payments being sent to bill collectors when they where paid, very unprofessional staff, never called in prescriptions on time. I feel very relieved leaving this place.

Dr. Turk is so compassionate. She is very smart and always explains things so I can understand. I love that she has flexible hours, even on weekends. The NP is great too. One of my favorite things about her is that she always asks me what my goals are. She makes sure that her plan aligns with what I want. She always asks about my family, and it astonishes me how much she remembers. Especially when so much time passes between visits. She truly cares about her patients. She sees them as people!

It was by far the worst experience I have ever had in 62 years. I scheduled to see Dr. Turk for a first time patient physical and after 30 minutes of questions and my blood pressure taken I was told the doctor wasn't in. They charged my insurance for a full wellness exam and I I have been trying to get them to change that ever since. Because now my insurance will not pay for another wellness physical for a year. lady in billing is the most rude unprofessional person I have ever dealt with

Gave ONE star because I couldn't give zero. Waited an hour and a half to see Dr. TURK got fed up and asked to reschedule then got charged for the WAIT TIME because I got weighed and blood pressure taken. plus They wanted co-pay on my rescheduled visit! Really? Just threw that first co-pay down the toilet...what a waste of my time and money. Stay away!

This office over the last year has made many improvements for the better. I feel they are more customer service orientated. Their process to move patients is more efficient and I feel the overall office has made the patient experience better. As a healthcare worker myself I notice things others may not. I am very happy with my overall care and service.

Dr.Turk is one of the most caring and knowledgeable physicians that I have ever worked with. She takes interest in the well being of her patients. She knows you, your family, your work. Physicians are not usually this involved and caring. I have recommended her to many of my friends and family. Scheduling appointments is seamless and she has great office hours and availability. Dr. Turk is awesome!

I saw her only one time, every time when i need to see the doctor it's always somebody else but not her, even if i have already scheduled an appointment to see her. Also, every time first come the nurse with a lot of questions, than some practitioner with the same question and than the doctor will appear again with the same type of questions. All that time it's about 30-40 min. Not professional definitely. The stuff is not coordinate with information and all of them can give you different answer

This doctor claims to be a pediatric dr. We made an appointment and then spent 2 hours in the office to be charged a co-pay and never get the immunizations for our daughter. They were quick to make my wife feel like a horrible mother for being behind on the immunization and then tell her they don't have them and have to refer us to Wal-Green. Waste of time and horrible people skills at the office. Will never go back and never refer this doctor to anybody else.
