Dr. Turnbull was referred to me by trusted friends when I broke my arm. They said he was the best in the area, direct and no nonsense. That is was I like in a doctor and exactly what I got. I fortunately didn't need surgery but at every visit he took the time to show me my x-rays and explained what I was seeing. I would have no problems referring anyone to Dr. Turnbull. I wish I knew about him before I went to CRMC when it happened. .I believe he would have been a better choice.

Dr. Turnbull has assisted me and my family on several occasions. His insight and helpfulness put all of us at ease. He has always shown a deep sense of concern for what needed to be done. I trust his diagnosis and he has always gotten us back to being healthy again. I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic care!

I was not treated with respect. I was left with a bad limp and pain.it has been 10 months. My hip replacement was a total failure.
Cookeville, Tennessee |
I was received coldly and left my visits frustrated with the lack of compassion and disrespect that I had never received by a physician during my follow up visits after rotator cuff surgery. I recommend finding another place to go other than Tier 1 to be treated as a whole person. Have since then heard the same story from many others.

Met with Dr. Turnbull this am who expedited my visit to his office. Took time to review option both short and long term as well as addressed some immediate treatment option. He took time to address my concerns and appreciated the level of interest and attention to detail.
