What People Say About Dr. Joseph Turnipseed, MD
I saw Dr Turnipseed for over 10 years. He is arrogant, self-serving, egotistical and rude. Thank goodness he got scared when other pain doctors were arrested. He decided to take me off all long term pain meds (cold turkey) and put me on low dose Loratab only. Loratab never worked for me. There are doctors who care but Dr Turnipseed is not one. His epidurals NEVER WORKED but he insisted I get them bc that's where ”he makes his money” The heck with how YOU feel its all ABOUT HIM AND MONEY. WRONG!
