Larry Kinard – Jul 17, 2021
Dr. Turner is an intergalactic visionary. BEST oncologist I have ever had. In addition to an exceptional "bedside manner," he has a remarkable sense of humor. He asked me how I was. When I replied happy, he actually searched to see if there is a diagnostic code for that! He meticulously manages my health concerns, gives easy to understand information, takes plenty of time at my appointment, and allows me to participate in decisions concerning my health care.

I have been coming to Dr. Turner over 3yrs and I find him pleasant and very knowledgeable in his field. I like the fact that he don't recommend treatment unless it necessary. He likes to go the course and not put you through underdo stress. He friendly and explain things on a level you can understand.

I certainly am blessed to have Dr Turner as my oncologist . I was not expecting the diagnosis I received after being admitted through the ER but Dr. Turner came highly recommended. I read reviews too and they exactly described his knowledge and experience. Dr. Turner is practicable with an optimistic approach. I know I am in experienced hands. Dr Turner listens to me and ask the right questions. The support staff is wonderful too.

Steve Honkle – Oct 09, 2020
This was my 26th anniversary visit since my original diagnosis of having Chronic lymphocytic leukemia ( CLL ) . Had my usual lab test, then was seen by Dr Turner for my annual physical exam. My condition is basically unchanged and my disease remains stable over the past year. In all the years that Dr Turner has been my oncologist since the original diagnosis, I have always received the best of care and compassion for my condition. He answers all my questions with accuracy, timeliness, and makes me feel very upbeat about my future prognosis. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Turner to anyone that has been diagnosed with any leukemia condition or other blood disorder.
