Mooresville, NC |
Dr Turke was outstanding while I was going thru my breast cancer. He explained everything and was caring and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him highly!

My experience with Dr. Turk began in November 2016. He met with my family and I several times before my surgery in December. He is extremely patient and has a calming demeanor. In addition, he has a very good bedside and professional attitude. I'm very blessed to have the experience of having him as my surgeon. I have and will definitely continue recommending Dr.Turk to others.

I interviewed 3 surgeons and chose Dr. Turk because he was very patient, kind, caring and thorough. All 3 surgeons recommended the same course of action, but Dr. Turk took time to follow up personally after initial consult and made me feel very well taken care of during a challenging time in my life. Although I have been cancer free for the last 8 years, if I were to have a reoccurance, I would go back to Dr. Turk.

Very friendly.... I went to him as an second opinion and could not have asked for anyone better. He took time to answer all of my questions, explaining everything about the procedures and what to expect. He put me at ease with the decisions we were making. He called me personally to give me the results from the pathology report.

He was more concerned about who was going to pay the bill than about the patients problems and concerns. I thought it was sort of strange. My bills have always been paid. I will be looking for another Doctor.
