I use Dr. Turner as my family ophthalmologist and he also provided cataract surgery on both my eyes. I have been very impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Turner and his staff. I have received excellent care and attention in all of our interactions. I appreciate the personal touches, such as calling me after surgery, which made me feel like a name and not just a number on a schedule. I am sure to recommend to others. Sandra Fortner
Fairhope, AL |
Dr Turner seems to very knowledgeable and I really liked him as a doctor. I did not like waiting over 2 hours to see him. My appointment was scheduled weeks in advance. From what I saw in the waiting room numerous patients were scheduled for the same time to see him.
in Daphne, AL |
Dr. Turner is an excellent doctor. He fully explains all your options regarding care and explains things so that you can understand and make an informed decision. Before surgery he comes into the room to make sure you are comfortable and ready to go. Your anxiety levels drops which makes for a more successful surgery. I WOULD NOT CHANGE DOCTORS

I would highly recommend Dr. Turner. He combines compassion & caring with a very high level of skill. From the first visit, I have been treated with respect and care and have had great support throughout a variety of eye surgeries. Have always been given the full story and been helped in making the right decision. His staff reflect his care approach and are great also.

He does not watch the clock and gies his patients the individual care they need. I have recommended him to everyone and have always heard the same comments that I have made. THANK YOU Dr. Turner for your brillant knowledge and care. Also thank you for a wonderful staff. They are also awsome.

Dr. Turner performed my cataract surgery a year ago. We chose to use mono vision correction since I was used to it with my contact lenses. It has been amazing. My distance vision is excellent and close up does not require reading glasses as all! I was also diagnosed with age related macular degeneration 2 years ago. After the surgery, the AMD has stabilized and my vision is wonderful. My husband is also a patient with diabetes. I highly recommend this physician. Thanks for all you do Dr. Turner

Love Dr. Turner and his staff. Recommend them highly!
in Atmore, AL |
He is very personable, and seems to have a very positive personality. He worked diligently to try to diagnose my problem. He decided to refer me to Dr. Davidson, who is also with Premier. I am also very pleased with him, and have heard glowing reports on both of them from other patients. I am 100 percent pleased with my care by these two doctors.
