Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Turnage is a very caring and passionate doctor. I had two rotator cuff shoulder surgeries, one in 2013 and one as recently as October 2017. The latter was quite extensive and took more time but Dr. Turnage stuck with me and glad to say I am 90% better. I recommend him highly.

I would Iike to say that due to the first two comments left I almost didn't go see Dr. Turnage. I am glad I did. He is an excellent doctor/surgeon. He fixed my minisculus tear and removed a ganglion cyst from my knee. I feel so much better and he listens to you and doesn't make you feel like...more

would have been the nice to have been notified before day of surgery that you were going to require $3000.00 to do it!! Your staff could have told us when we came in last week or even two months ago. What happened to don't worry, I just want to see you walking again? We could have done something!...more

Terrible surgeon. I had to go to the ER shortly after surgery by Dr. Turnage and fix the mess he made. Blamed the mess he caused on me. Class act. Avoid at all cost.
