    in State College, PA |
    Dr. Turk is the most unprofessional psychiatrist--and MD--that I have ever been to. He constantly interrupts me, and becomes easily agitated and frustrated if you do not answer his questions exactly as he wants you to. He is also super defensive. If I am having trouble with a medication, he is quick to blame me for it not working, rather than take responsibility for what he prescribes. Overall, my experience with Dr. Turk has been traumatic, and done much more harm than good.
