Dr. Turok has brought me a level of pain relief that I was unable to find from any other source. I have literally begun living a normal life again. I am so grateful for his expertise, I call him "the Miracle Man" for how much he has helped me.
in WestSpringfield, MA |
Dr Turok cares about his patients and listens to them. His office staff is friendly, but Proffessional. Waiting time is rarely longer than 15 minutes.
in Danbury, CT |
Dr. Turok is a terrific Doctor. He truly cares about his patients and shows this over and over. I was in pain for several years while on pain medication and still barely functioning to do everyday things. I went to Dr. Turok and within three weeks of first consultation I have no pain in my back and I am off pain meds I was taking. He as well as his staff are wonderful, welcoming, caring individuals. Dr. Turok is very knowledgable and professional.
in Wolcott, CT |
Dr. Turok is very knowledgeable doctor who truly cares about his patients. He understands how pain affects people's quality of life and does his best to fix it.
in Middletown Ct |
I went to Dr Turak after years with another pain management Dr. After failing to help and feeling like I was not being given any treatments other than opioids and occasional shots to my back I switched to Dr Turak. From the first appoint I could tell he was different. Not only was he willing to spend time and talk to me on my initial visit but this has continued to date. I recommend him for those who are tired of the same old pay Dr that does more looking at your chart than speaking to you.
in Stamford, CT |
Dr. Turok does not rush through your visit as do other doctors. He answers all your questions thoroughly and is genuinely concerned about your health. The staff is both professional and efficient.
in Branford, CT |
Dr. gave me the wrong placenta injection as he didn't bother to ask me which of the 2 I wanted. I had thought that only one existed, which is why I didn't clarify it with him. It also didn't work & was the more expensive of the 2. He should discuss why he wants to run certain neurological tests as most of mine were needless. Moreover, he presented me with an orthopedic brace without saying that it might cost me a thousand dollars. I wasn't there for my back, and I cancelled its MRI. Very shady.

This is in response to my own review dated April 29,16. I would like to change my review and the rating for Dr. Turok. There was a misunderstanding on my part due to computer generated documents which happened in error and claimed I was a tobacco user. I contacted Dr. Turok who turned the whole experience into a positive one. He was so nice and helped correct the documents. He also gave us great advice on how to manage epilepsy which no doctor has offered in 24 years. I highly recommend Dr Turok
in Norwalk, CT |
I was referred to Dr. Turok by a Neurologist after I fell down a flight of stairs. Being a teacher requires me to stand, sit, and move around a classroom. This became almost impossible for me. I was in constant pain. My treatment consisted of pain meds. and limited physical therapy. With Dr. Turok, I have received the best of care. My pain has subsided tremendously with the PRP treatments that he is now using. Dr. Turok is very caring and is up-to date on new treatments. I am almost pain-free.
in Wilton, CT |
I think Dr. T is great! I have bulging disc issues c-3 to c-6. He has enabled me to go thru life without surgery and for the most part without pain medications. No other Dr. I saw was able to do this. The Pain doctor I was in Stamford only performed additional expensive procedures that aggravated my condition and caused me more pain. I can't was enough good things about Dr. Turok.. He gave me my life back!
in East Haven, CT |
Dr Turok was a great doctor he treated me with respect & explained all the procedures before performing them. His treatment plan for me was working great! It was not very hard to schedule an appointment.Just a little disappointing how i was treated after i was discharged from his office the staff became more rude & Dr. would not even speak to me & left me not knowing what to do next after administering shots for months that he knew could have side effects Overall he is excellent at what he does!
Terrible Doctor. Rude and undignified.
