Melrose Park, IL |
Met her in 2004 in Illinois. She helped me bring my beautiful doll to this world. Truly dedicated. Very compassionate. I kept thinking I was going to die in the table (I had a very difficult pregnancy). I couldn't of been in better hands.
Urbandale, IA |
I really liked Dr. Turner so much that I put up with the terrible wait times of 45 min. She was real laid back until a month before my due date and she started pushing that I needed to schedule to be induced. I was really close to my due date and she wanted me to schedule a c-section instead. She said I needed to let her do her job. I ended up going 3 days past due. She apologized when I walked into labor for what she had said. I wonder if she was pressured or thinking on her own.
