Dr. Joseph P. Turk's Ratings
I agree with the negative reviews. The front office staff was not welcoming boarding on rude. Waited over an hour in the lobby with no explanation as to delay even though other patients were coming and going ahead of us. The x-ray tech was harried. The nurse was somewhat friendly. The doc was arrogant. Spoke only in medical/technical terminology. Did not offer me treatment options stating his was the only way to go. First time I've ever had to PAY for copies of my x-rays!
Dr. Turk is a very talented surgeon. Whenever I mention his name people always remark that he is "the best" in Ventura County! He is very busy, however. His appointments are always very informative and helpful. He tries to get right to the point so don't show him pictures of your kids. He's very good so he has lots of people to see. When you're one of his patients, you realize you're in good hands. He deals with a lot of people who are in pain so his visits aren't always "chatty." His focus is on your problem and how he can help you solve it. The more you are around him, the more personable he becomes. He has very high standards and remarkable results.
So Dr. Joey doesn't have the best bedside manner. When you mention his name to people who had surgery by him or know of him, they genuflect. He's that good. He fixed my knee! The last X-ray I saw was a work of art (I need to ask for a copy to frame). So just don't let him intimidate you. (Remember, you could be his mother.) Really, he's the best.
I was warned that this doctor has absolutely no bedside manner. I never expected him to be mean and rude. I don't care how good a doctor he is. I will NEVER go back. No one deserves to be treated disrespectfully.
Don't see this doctor unless you have very thick skin. And, don't take your elderly parents to him. He is mean and has no empathy for his patients. We had to walk out without further treatment because of his attitude. We will find a more careing doctor elsewhere.
