Patient Comments (9)

I've been a patient of Dr. Turner, since shortly after he began his practice with SouthWest ENT's. He Is a very patient, knowledgeable doctor that listens. He diagnosed Penred syndrome as the reason I've lost my hearing. A great surgeon thas done cochlear implants in both my ears.

Dr Turner was recommended to me by a former coworker of mine. I've found him to be quite professional, sharp, and approachable. He's a kind doctor and I would highly recommend him. It's a super busy practice but the staff is all great and quite helpful and appear to be a good team.

I am baffled by the comments asserting that this man "listens" to his patients. Dr. Turner is a chronic narcissist that could care less what you think your problem is.

I pride myself on listening to my patients and giving them the time they need. I see many patient with Eustachian Tube dysfunction and two frequent causes of this condition are chronic sinusitis and allergic disease. I do not order testing including CT scans without reason. Possibly the previous scan was performed prior to medical treatment or was not the appropriate scan. Having ordered and read thousands of CT scans over the years, I am capable of reading them.

Dr. Turner explains things very well which is important for someone like me with a long history of ear problems. He is very thorough and knows all of the latest procedures; which, in my case allowed me to hear again.

I've been with Dr Turner for nearly 18 years. I can honestly say he is a fantastic doctor - the best in the Dayton area. I don't think trusting a different doctor with my ear disease would be possible as he has been through the highs and lows with me, and he has a kind heart.
