Folks, don't be fooled by other bad Doctors. Dr. Turf repaired my foot after the worst foot Dr. messed it up.....Dr. Nichols in the Oak Brook area. I have many friends who have had success with Dr. Turf after bad experiences with other foot Doctors. I would not let anyone operate on my feet again other than Dr. Turf, he is the best!

Unfortunately, I would not recommend him to anybody. Not only he gave me a deformed, oversized foot, he mislead us on the recovery information, lied on the medical records by stating that everything was perfect, disregarded all my post surgery complaints. Overdid on the procedures for a flat foot, has ruined my ability to have a normal active athletic lifestyle, I'm limited to wear oversized gym shoes. The deformed foot that he gave is "normal" according to him. Stay away from this doctor!!!

I would have been far better off without the bilateral foot surgeries performed by Dr Turf. The osteotomy was done in a distal rather proximal location. The procedure to correct the great toe position failed twice and Dr Turf stated "Well it didn't work". He never mentioned ordering physical therapy. He actually planned to do more surgery. A second opinion from another podiatric surgeon clarified Dr Turf's errors. My pain has progressed to the point where I will not be able to continue in my job

As a retired R.N., I do research providers before I see them, and a friend had Dr. Turf for two different surgeries and had excellent recoveries. I came to see him for a toe that had been fractured many years ago, resulting in the destruction of the joint. He replaced the joint eight weeks ago and I am walking normally for the first time in many years. It was essentially pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Turf if you are looking for a skilled surgeon. Only sorry I waited so long!

Dr turf has by far been the best doctor I've ever dealt with. His bed side manner is great, he really knows how to make you feel cared about. His surgery was easy and pretty much pain free, I also have minimal scaring. If you're looking for a podiatrist dr turf is your guy!

Dr. Turf repaired my left foot, that was mutilated by a different foot doctor. So when I had pain in my right foot I wasn't worried at all! I felt better immediately and healed the way it was supposed to. My husband will be going to Dr. Turf shortly for his foot problems! And all wives no what babies husbands can be. I have no worries though!!
