I went to Dr Turner for light spots on my face. He gave me some cream to darken them but now I look like Aunt Jemima.

Memphis, TN |
I was very impressed with the care I received today. The staff was friendly and professional. Dr.Turner was very friendly and professional as well. This is a busy office so the dermatologists may not have a ton of time to stay but they do their job and they do it well. I would recommend Dr.Turner and his staff.
Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Turner takes time to listen to all you need to say. He has given me excellent care. His staff is equally caring and have worked me in to several last minute appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Turner!!!
Memphis, TN |
Assistant askedME where several warts were located on bottom of my foot. She had a computer diagram, but since she had just walked in the room and the other assistant had closed lap top already, she didn't know. She was miffed when I suggested she take a minute and LOOK at the diagram.
