Excellent surgeon! Very professional and answered all my questions. Had both hips replaced at the same time, and I have been able to drive 3 weeks post-op, just as he said I would. I am recommending him very highly!!!

I am 79 years old and I have had two successful total knee replacements in the last 6 months done by Dr. Turk; one in February 2016 and second one done last month in August 2016. In both cases I was walking without a cane in just under 2 weeks. Don't get me wrong, this is not a cake-walk, but If you want the best surgeon in Ventura County, the one that other doctors go to, then you want to select Dr. Turk. He is a perfectionist and a genius at what he does. By the way his staff is great also

I was told 30 years ago that I would need hip replacement by the time I was 50. At 70, I decided to get it done. I had conditions - I wanted both hips done at the same time. Right up to when I was wheeled into OR, I didn't know if Dr. Turk would be able to do it. He did an excellent job. It's not been two months, and I'm driving, going to exercise class, cleaning my own house & even mowing the lawn. This man is an artist. No pain at all, just aching from hip to knee for a couple weeks.

I asked my PT working with me for a shoulder injury who they see taking on the challenging and difficult knee surgeries, and he said Turk fixed problems of other surgeons. He is rigorous in his routine and precise in his requirements for PT, but my results were excellent. His bedside manner is a bit gruff, but I'm much more pleased at having a functioning knee again than having a buddy.
in Thousand Oaks, CA |
Main reason is results. Two weeks after total knee replacement I have little pain and walking almost without a cane. I have been able to do physical therapy day 1 after surgery. Throughout the process, Dr. Turk and his team have been wonderful to work with.
in Aliso Viejo, CA |
Worst experience of my life! Totally rude and arrogant. Never addressed my concerns and made me feel like I shouldn't be asking questions.
