Appreciated the fact that Dr. Turk reviewed my test results and medical records prior to the visit. He was empathetic and kind and did a nice job explaining my diagnosis and treatment options. He provided an appropriate amount of educational materials and was appropriately reassuring. Everyone in the office was pleasant and helpful. I was given information about next steps, what to expect and who to contact with questions.
