Ratings for Dr. Susan Turner
I wanted a second opinion for my falling arches and when I went to see Dr. Turner, her focus was to fit me for orthodics. I shared the details of my 1st consult with another podiatrist (and I did not disclose that the other podiatrist did not recommend orthodics). During Dr. Turner's examination., i felt that it was less thorough and she did not confirm nor add any opinions to my account of my previous diagnosis. I was so turned off by her trying to sell me $500+ orthodics.
Dr. Susan Turner's response
I am sorry that you were disappointed and your expectation wasn't fulfilled. I invite you in the future, to be in communication at the time of your appointment, so you can get what you want. I know that can be hard sometimes when you're in the moment, but it's the only way I know to avoid disappointment in life. Regarding, the orthotics, there are as many opinions as there are practitioners. Sometimes physicians who are not as comfortable or confident making orthotics will shy away from that approach. One of the things I have learned in my 26 years of practicing podiatry and making orthotics, is that ultimately the patient needs thorough information so they can make the best decision for themselves. I cannot decide for them. The last thing I ever intend to do is "try to sell" orthotics. It's not responsible medicine and never goes well.

This is just about the worst podiatrist I've ever been treated by. I have seen many over many years because I have two severely deformed feet. She cut me, went off her mark three times with the grinder/dremmel, scraping my skin badly. She did not relieve my pain that I went for and charged me $40 or $45 despite getting coverage through MHR. I'll not be back. If you are looking for a good podiatrist, especially if you know what that means, look elsewhere.
