Patient Comments (5)
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

Fabulous bedside manner and quality repair work. He's treated both of my feet and has me back to being active!

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!!
