left with a sick feeling. I never asked or been prescribed opioids since I broke my foot in 2018 and was given it. was drug tested on walking in but later the DR stated Pain meds don't work on nerve pain so why tested? $$ (shocking) I gave all my complaints and info to the nurse and the Dr walks in asking why I was there, obviously there was no handoff from the nurse. So, again I go through about my PN symptoms and pain and the Dr says "So what do you want?". I suspect this was a seeker question maybe. I said "to be out of pain". Why else do I go to a Pain management Dr? (stupid question). I tried most of the standard therapies I hoped for more offerings with stats on how many people these gimmicks helped. Nothing. They ordered another anticonvulsant to which we didn't discuss and a cream I've already used without my consent? I was offered three "out of pocket" gimmicks including IV B12 though labs show fine and injection would be before IV. Shameful his treatment of ppl

This place is a racket/money mill. Dr. Turok is all talk and no skill. The bright spot in this office is Dr. Marcel Green, who is a fantastic chiropractor. Kiley in the office is downright rude, icy, and will add to the pain you are already in.

Dr Turok is the best! I’ve been a patient almost 6 years and with his help I am able to enjoy my life with a lot less pain! I am very impressed with how he has handled my care during this pandemic. He has been in weekly contact with me which is very reassuring. I look forward to resuming my in office visits next month!

Dr. Igor Turok - I went to his Stamford office. Dr. Turok instilled my faith in neurologists. I had gone to a few and swore I wouldn't go to one again. After a serious surgery, it was recommended that I go to a neurologist. My attitude was negative to say the least, but my family can be pretty persuasive to a point of annoyance. I looked online and figured I would give Dr. Turok a chance. What is the worst that could happen? I can just leave and never go back. I was happily surprised. Dr. Turok took the time to find the origin of my pain. He made my life easier and the pain manageable. The staff is great. The secretary is lovely. She returns phone calls immediately and follows through with a patient's concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Turok.

Doesn’t care to take the time to explain anything properly to patients, nor does he listen to concerns. He just whips through each patient with the same protocol of testing and procedures. Up until now, I was his patient for many years. But no more. He’s constantly looking for more ways to bring money in his practice, sacrificing quality of care. He’s made several mistakes by not looking into my file and doesn’t care to take responsibility or even apologize. He just becomes combative or sarcastic. You can read that in his replies to negative comments. He also PUSHES his patients to write reviews with incessant emails and in office. It’s sad, and I worry for new patients. They need accurate representation and half of these reviews aren’t that. I know of several patients and employees who left because of bad practices.

Stay away, this is a con man. Takes no history, does not care about that. Only wants to prescribe tons of unnecessary tests and treatments. I left there after my first visit with 6 visits scheduled for the next 2 weeks plus a 500 dollar back brace I didn't want.

I feel no one listened to me nor understood why I was there. I was given expensive equipment to take home that had nothing to do with my pain. When I tried to explain, I walked over & told I need these things. Turns out I didn't & had to return everything. I'll not go back.

I have been a patient of Dr. Turok for over 10 years. I had 2 disc replaced in my neck and am seeing Dr. Turok for pain management. Without the treatment (Radio Frequency injection, Cervical epidural, facet injection, dysport injection) I don't believe I would be able to work and have a quality of life that I do have. He ensures that you receive a level of care that should be expected from any doctor. He is straight forward, honest and truly caring about his patients. He will not let you just walk out of his office in pain. He will always do his best to make sure you are living your best quality of life. When my daughter was diagnosed with back issues as a freshman in high school there was no other doctor I trusted enough to help her. He took her on as one of his youngest patents at the time and ensured that she was treated properly and wasn't put on medications she didn't need. I cant say enough about the trust I have in his abilities. Thank you for all you have done.

Aside from being a doctor, Dr. Turok is a compassionate, exceptional human being. He has treated me for quite a few issues. He and his staff are very caring, and professional. In addition, they take the time to care for me, and I feel that is an integral part of doctor/patient relationships. I feel very fortunate to have discovered Dr. Turok’s office. I cannot thank them enough!
