15/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Turkle is great. Very meticulous, caring and a true professional. I was very concerned about scaring and I have none, even though I have a problem with keloids. I would send friends and family to her anytime. The surgery she performed on me, (face, eyes, chin) gave me as much self esteem as I experienced when I got contact lenses at age 16. I did not expect that or even realize that I needed the psychological "lift". I may have her do a few other procedures, as I was just that pleased and happy with these results. She and her staff as well as the surgical center RNs and anesthesiologists she uses, make a comforting, reassuring team. My care at the Women's Surgery Center was excellent...unsurpassed in my few surgical experiences.

28/10/11 4 3 1 5 Busy office, very nice office staff, but that is it. Once they have your money, they dont care if you are happy. In February, I bought the eye cream Youth Complex $105! I used it for 2 months. When I went back, I told them I was not happy and it actually caused me more eye wrinkles. I was told that I have to bring it back within 30 days- it takes more than 30 days to determine how something is going to work. In April I had Juvederm filler-$450/syringe. I had 1/2 left. The nurse told me that when I needed it, I could come back and it would be here, and a $50 charge is all I would pay. I just went back for botox and wanted a filler touch up. The new doc told me, sorry-she should not have done that and they dont keep syringes and she was told about doing this. No offer of compensation. I am out $225-Just 'sorry'. I could have just used it up then if I knew they didnt save it. Again, once they have your $, they dont care if you are happy. It seems they do not stand behind their service.  Respond

02/12/10 5 4 5 5 I have recently had facial procedures by Dr. Turkle and had breast and body procedures a while ago--I am extremely pleased. I feel like I look refreshed and rejuvenated--in fact, I ran into someone that I went to high school with and he could not believe that I still looked so good. I am 52--he said I look like I am in my 30's. Good for the ego:) My breasts and body still look great many years after having surgery. I have sent tons of my family and friends to her and we always do a toast to her when we go have a girls night:)  Respond

24/09/10 2 2 1 1 Terrible Results from DOCTOR JANET TURKLE. My daughter was completely taken advantage of. She saved money for her breast augmentation and was so disappointed with the surgery, and Doctor Turkle's response. One side was small the other huge. The surgery was done approx. 4 months ago. She went to see Dr. Turkle to express her concerns and Dr. Turkle said they looked fine and that it would cost another $3,500.00 to fix what was not acceptable my daughter. Since then, The right side is even smaller like it deflated and the left side is falling and forming a double bubble that is hurting her rib cage. We are having surgery redone by one of the best plastic surgeons in Illinois who was disgusted at what he saw. PLEASE< PLEASE< PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR BODY IN THE HANDS OF THIS HORRIBLE SO CALLED DOCTOR.  See Responses

25/04/10 2 3 1 1 Dr. Turkle seemed iritated by my husbands questions and concerns. She did not tell us till after the breast reduction that loose tissue would be left on both sides under the arms that requires another procedure to remove. Also this additional procedure would be considered cosmedic and insurance would not cover it. I have tryed to find side support bras to mask it. I fear it will never look good to my husband and we do not have the money for the other procedure. At least my back is better off.

23/06/09 1 1 1 5 Only after paying for my service did I realize that the office didn't really care about anything other than my cash. I consulted with Dr. Turkle after a very lengthy wait.I called the office a week prior to increase the size of the implant and was told that I could just tell her at the surgery center of my desires and to bring pictures,she would have any size I wanted there. That was only to find out when I got there the pictures didn't matter because I had already picked my size. I got extremely sick after the procedure with atelectisis (fluid on the lungs) I couldn't breath,or swallow, that lasted two weeks. I was told by turkles office to call my pcp it wasn't their problem and they couldn't do anything about it. I am unhappy with the service, the care, and the very small deformed man pecks dr. turkle left me with. I would NOT recommend this office to anyone.  Respond

15/08/08 5 5 5 5 Very understanding yet tells it like it is. I believe her if she says it can or can't be done in regards to my expectations. From my extensive research, she's the best in Indiana. Staff was outstanding. Felt like I was family when all said and done. Sometime the wait was longer then the 10 minutes I wanted, but I felft when it was my turn, there was never a rush. Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable.  Respond

10/06/08 5 4 5 5 I cannot say enough great things about my expereince with Dr. Turkle. I had a breast lift/slight reduction.Turkle has a great eye and understanding of learning what your end result desired is. The scaring is minimal and is exactly what I was told would be there. They are perky and even. I had an issue with my insurance company with a particial claim and their billing department worked tirelessly to help me finally resolve the issue. I have told everyone I know considering cosmetic surgery to consult with Dr. Turkle. She is calm and very dedicated to helping you get the results you want. She is a realist and a good listener. Her office does not try to oversell services or suggest more than what you want. Never thinking I would ever do any cosmetic surgery, I feel I chose a caring doctor who not only helped me after loosing weight and doing all I could do in the gym, but did it respectfully.

07/05/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Turkle corrected a "mess" that another Indianapolis Cosmetic Surgeon left me with! I had a mastopexy (breast lift) by another northside platic surgeon who left me with one "square" breast and an unsightly glob of fatty tissue under the other armpit. Dr. Turkle corrected this beautifully and it turned out just like I hoped it would. She is professional, straightforward, and very caring. I will definately go back to her for any other surgery need. I was lucky to find her.  Respond

19/04/07 1 3 4 I only went for a consult but the wait was very long. After waiting in the lobby awhile, I was then ushered into a room where I was instructed to watch a 15 minute film about a procedure I didn't need (they later apologized). I then had another sizeable wait for the doctor. It seemed EVERYONE (front desk, nurse, doctor) was doing a sales job for the esthetician department and to sell expensive make-up which I didn't appreciate. That wasn't why I was there and it was rather pressured. I'm unsure at this time if I would ever go back.  Respond

10/10/06 5 5 5 I am a mastectomy patient who had suffered through several poor reconstruction surgeries. Dr. Turkle did a fantastic job- it is the first time in over 30 years that I feel good about myself. Her staff is knowledgeable and friendly; everyone explains everything. Dr. Turkle was recommended to me by another friend who had recently required reconstructive surgery after a mastecomy and we are both delighted with the results.  Respond

20/09/06 5 1 3 Doctor Turkle used her own discretion and increased my breasts to a size beyond my consent. The office failed to mail me paperwork in a timely manner. The office pressures women to accept a larger implant size. The surgery was safe but the doctor is an ineffective communicator.  Respond
