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. Unable to pinpoint a readily observable cause to my sinusitis and subsequent eustachian tube blockage, this man ordered a CAT scan (even when one had been done 1 month prior) and was apparently unable to read it. So in desperation, he orders allergy testing. I've never been allergic to anything. Typical quack with an agenda.
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.

I presented with pain starting on one side of my throat and shooting out my ear. The pain lasted 5 months. During this time I was in the hosp. due to dehydration & had tests performed including an Upper GI, MRI, brain scan, CAT scan, 2 Ultra sounds, blood work, hearing test, & was placed on 5 separate antibiotics. I went to 7 different doctors and none resolved my problem. Then came doctor #8, Dr. William Turner. During the first visit he nailed down the problem!! Great doctor!

Dr. Turner performed major surgery on my husband, so I know he is skilled. However, when I saw him for an appt he was totally disinterested and spent about 5 minutes with me. The most incomplete exam I have ever had. I try to give doctors the benefit of the doubt but he is terrible. If you do not have a disease he can write an article about then do not waste your time.
in Kettering, OH |
Probably the best medical experience of my life. He was informative and genuinely friendly. I went in to get my ears tubed. At age 60 I was a bit afraid, but his manor was the best. Go see Dr. Turner!
in Dayton, OH |
Dr. Turner is a wonderful Dr. He listens to what I have to say and he always enters the room with a smile on his face. He had performed 2 nasal surgeries on me and I have to say my quality of life has greatly improved. I would definitely recommend Dr. Turner.
