Excellent. Office staff was wonderful and Dr Turk was always reachable. Explained what was going to happen before and after the surgery. I had a knee replacement and ran into so many people who have a deep respect for him as an outstanding surgeon. I have recommended him to several of my friends.

Dr. Turk did an amazing job with the whole process of getting my knee replaced. He is very detail oriented, communicates the process well, and post surgical care was excellent.

My right hip “popped” out 3 times in June of 2017, even after the original surgeon, who did the THR in 1999, revised my hip, 2017! Dr. Turk , a magnificent “mechanic”, researched why this was occurring and fixed the problem. He, since then, replaced the left hip also. I now have ridden a horse & play PIckleball. No problem!

My husband's surgery was 2/20/19. He has crippling hip pain for 15-20 years and severe in the last 2-3 years. Dr. Turk was easy to get into for a consult. He took x-rays and determined upon arrival that he needed a total hip replacement. We scheduled the surgery within weeks. He only stayed 1 night in the hospital, was up and walking day 1. Home recovery was great, week one walking and therapy. Back to work in 1 week. Today was our 2 week post op.,Dr. Turk was impressed with his quick recover

I am celebrating today! One year ago I had a hip replacement (58 years old) and I was in so much pain for so long. Today I have full range of motion and have been waterskiing, back to zumba and can walk 10,000 steps a day! Dr. Turk knows his stuff! Thank you for giving me my life back!!!
