Dr. Turknett is fine. His staff is very rude!
Decatur, GA |
Excellent doctor, friendly and helpful staff!

Treated like a child by front desk staff. Very rude. Definitely get the impression by staff and doctor that you're just a number and not an individual. Disappointing.

Dr. Turknett was one of the worst neurologists I've been too. I wanted to die after my appointment. Even though I knew that what he told me was not evidence-based, I left in despair.
in Decatur, GA |
I asked Dr. Turknett to visit me twice in the hospital as I was having severe migraines. He never came and no one called to explain why he did not. For a situation where I was having seizures, I was not able to get an appointment for four months. I was told I could be put on a cancellation wait list. At this point, I had been Dr. Turknett's patient for over 12 years.
