Dr. Turner is always a phone call away. He is an amazing neurosurgeon! I was nervous about getting a shunt, I'm so happy to report that Dr. Turner was able to address my situation with precision & less scarring that I had seen other surgeons leave on their patients.

Dr. Turner is a very thorough and upfront surgeon. His expertise will improve & your life. What makes Dr.Turner unique? not only listens to you concerns; he does his homework on every patients situation ( unlike many neurosurgeons) "Not every person's situation is the same. " Is one thing that he stress,surrounds his patients with a professional staff, is precise and to diligent.

I had Cervical Fusion on Feb. 10, 2016. I called on May 11 or 12 for a follow-up because my neck was bothering me. The staff called me back and said Dr. Turner was no longer associated with his group, therefore, I had no insurance coverage and no one to follow-up the healing of my Cervical Fusion. I had to start all over and find someone who would take me on as a patient to following my surgery. Through my Primary Care Physician I found someone close. I'm not too pleased with the experience
