Patient Reviews
May 15, 2024
From the moment I learned I had Parathyroid issues. I went searching for a surgeon after seeing my endocrinologist. I came across Dr. Turner I believe it was a YouTube I watched and I knew I wanted him. I told my PCP I wanted Dr. Turner to do my surgery if need be. I went to my first initial appointment he reassured me of all the risks and complications. I knew I made the right choice. He was very attentive. I had later found out I was pregnant into the process of ultrasounds and needed a nuclear medicine scan. The scan was opt out of course. It was recommended I have the surgery during my second trimester. I had the surgery, with no complications. I am waiting for my next blood work to make sure my levels are reset and hopefully they are and also awaiting the birth of a healthy baby girl! I highly recommend Dr. Turner and his staff. They were phenomenal.
