I had a "Double Cabbage", & have been out of the hospital (in 6 days) & back home, walking almost a mile(±) a day, less than 4 weeks after surgery. Lungs have cleared (yes, I've STILL quit smoking & have had very few "cravings") & pain is almost manageable with OTC meds... maybe a week more on prescription painkillers, then it's just the regular "heart pills", etc. I want to say thanks again to Dr. Turnage, David Levitan, ALL the OR staff, nurses, techs, EMTs, kitchen crew, housekeeping & anyone I'm forgetting @ West Florida Hospital. I plan on putting the remaining years(?) I have left to good use & maaaannnn, do this year's blueberries off the bush taste sweeter than ever~! MUCH LOVE, and Thank You So Much. RWE can't get the 5star button to click in FireFox, so I'm gonna try googleChrome

My name is Jimmy L Landrum and I would like to give a shout out to the offices of Dr Turnage and to the doctor and his PA, David Levitan. Dr Turnage will do a double by-pass on me in early Jan and after my last appt he took the time to answer all of our questions. I feel I have the best team for this and his staff has been super nice and helpful to me and my wife. I realize this is a scary situation, but Dr turnage is a very qualified surgeon and aDr one can talk to.

Dr. Turnage removed a nodule from my husband’s lung. He came highly recommended by our primary care Doctor. Our first meeting with him was excellent. He explained everything he would be doing and put us at ease. The surgery went well. We really liked him!!!

I am a new patient referred by my cardiologist dr Phillips His opinion of dr turnage was outstanding and put my family an I at ease. Let me tell you he was as good as advertised. He gave a perfect set up as t what was going to happen before during and after my surgery and it was spot on. If you need to trust your life to someone. DR TURNAGE and his staff are the ones. Also his bedside manner was outstanding. Thanks from a great fun family. Rick, Loni and Jamie
