I am always treated with respect and am given time to ask questions receiving answers that I understand.
in Coppell, TX |
Very conservative treatment approach. Does not jump straight to surgical option, but gives other alternative choices before proceeding to surgery if necessary. Very thorough review of symptoms and explains all options thoroughly. Would recommend Dr. Turner highly!
in Aubrey, TX |
Dr. Turner is an excellent physician. He takes time and care to make sure everything is right. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends if they ever need his expertise. He listened to what my concerns were and explained the procedure very well.
in Bedford, Texas |
Dr Turner and his PA's demonstrated genuine concern for me and my family, when I unexpectedly found myself in the hospital. Dr Turner made it clear from the beginning, that we would get to the root of the problem. What a relief! Subsequent visits to his office, only reinforced my positive feelings for him and his entire staff.

Dr Turner and all his staff are caring and respectful to their patients A plus service.
Dr. Turner always has time to listen to your concerns, he makes sure you fully understand the problem, your options, risks, and success rates. He is not a doctor that will come in rushing, tell you what you will or will not do; he truly wants you to be a part of your care.

When looking for "the right neurosurgeon" for my situation, I wanted Quality- not quantity. Dr. Turner is a no nonsense , focused precise neurosurgeon . I'm blessed to have found him. Dr. Turner pays attention to his patients specific needs. Not all surgeons will do this. Check out his education- He is top notch in his field.
Ft Worth, TX |
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
