Patient Comments (1)
in Wheatfield, IN |
I waited 10 days for an urgent appointment with Dr Turk. When I got to the office the wait seemed extensive. I was in pain and by the time I was called back to the examination room I was crying. The nurse nor the doctor asked if I was okay or if I needed anything. They quickly went through what I assume are their standard questions. Dr Turk immediately said that I needed another antibiotic, my 3rd and to call him in two weeks if not better. No culture or testing. Lazy doctoring. So frustrated!
