Ratings for Dr. Cory Turner
Ok so every comment here is accurate..the staff are the worse in the profession..Ruby seems to hate everyone..what I object to are the idiot signs..put your purse here...or only one body area at a time to be discussed..so the Dr can stay on time..OMG that is hilarious...Dr T almost seems challenged..he repeats things over and over..appears very disorganized..his technique poor at best ..especially with the liquid nitrogen..uses way more than necessary....didnt find him rough in examing me..just sad that this is a place where people with skin cancer have to go..come on Dr T wake up and treat your patients with respect..fire the staff and get some professional caring people in there..and I am sure OHIP would love to see his billing practice when it comes to rereferrals every 6 months for a patient he has treated before..not sure that is legal.
The staff at Dr. Turners office (receptionist, nurse etc.) are unprofessional and rude. They are miserable. Perhaps because they have to work with Dr. Turner surrounded by his ignorance and belittling disrespect - if I had another dermatologist to go to, I would. Unfortunately Oshawa and surrounded area is limited for options. I’m considering travelling to Toronto so I do not have to interact with such horrible individuals. Most medical staff are grumpy and not always pleasant, but I assure you - the ones here are some of the worst. Definetley all divorced.
I am loathe to rate physicians because of the challenges they face in our inundated health care system. I will however rate this one. I am providing a terrible rating primarily due to the rudeness of his office administrator. I missed a follow up appointment two days ago because I incorrectly assumed there would be a reminder phone call, which in my experience most specialist's office do (given the length of time between appointments). This would have been my second visit to this office. Yes, I should have "put the pink card on my fridge". After being chastised, I asked what the next step was. "Pay the no show fee and then we'll book you another appointment". Having had skin cancer in the past, it is necessary to be followed regularly. Is there anyone who practices with compassion left in the medical community? I hope so. I won't go back to this office.
There is a '3 best dermatologists in Oshawa' rating, which is posted online, yet there are (sadly) only FOUR in Oshawa, which translates as only one of them being excluded! and guess who is excluded? You guessed it...Dr. Turner BUT due to there only being four, this does NOT mean the other three are that great either and of note, three of these four are located at the Oshawa Clinic, one of whom I saw after experiencing Turner's horrendous bedside manner as well as his staff's nonexistent live answer, rudeness and extreme unprofessionalism; for e.g., a comment made ie "you got it Pontiac" (!) and lying ie advising she was going to respond to my (REPEAT due to NON response) voicemail the same day yet I waited FOUR MINUTES before the office closes so what do YOU think the probability is that she was actually going to do this?! So this left being seen by Dr. Tuppal BUT he would NOT see me due to me being seen by his two colleagues, which translates as REJECTING me due to NO FAULT OF MINE and instead due to his two horrendous COLLEAGUES; in other words Tuppal formed a negative, JUDGEMENTAL impression of me BEFORE EVEN SEEING ME, which therefore demonstrates bias and discrimination. So that leaves me with only one dermatologist available, who is NOT affiliated with Oshawa Clinic and who is fortunately THE best in Oshawa; otherwise, I would be left with ZERO dermatologists. Bottom line, Oshawa needs more than a mere four dermatologists, especially since Oshawa Clinic has not only 'cornered the market' on these specialists but they also ALLOW two out of their three to treat patients poorly and refuse patients to be seen by a different one (which begs the question why they allowed me to be seen by a different one once but not twice, which I suspect was due to the Clinic being AWARE of Turner's poor rating/bedside manner). I believe the Admin staff is hired by Oshawa Clinic vs the doc's themselves so complaints should be addressed to the Clinic's Hiring Manager vs passively online (RateMed, etc) as technically, staff complaints do not pertain to the docs themselves although I DO realize that patients must also put up with with poor staff. I have seen other doc's at this clinic, whose staff are also rude so poor staff appears to be an OVERALL issue at this clinic, which reinforces the need to address this issue with the Hiring Manager (and if she does nothing, escalation to someone who does care about patient satisfaction, ESPECIALLY since it reflects negatively on their DOCTORS. Remember folks, the more complaints, the more pressure placed on this clinic to be accountable.
My son had an appointment with Dr. Turner...I run a very large office in health care, I have never been so appalled by a staffs behavior as I was with this admin team. My son is disabled i was not allowed in the room, we had treatment done that I did not consent to nor agree to pay for. My son actually liked the doctor however i would dismiss any staff that acted, breached privacy or treated a patient the way they treated us. we will forcibly attend until the treatment is completed. may consider a more formal complaint
I have been physically abused.by Dr Cory Turner twice. Several months ago I asked him if he could look at the sore in my mouth. He snapped at me said he dont look at mouths and proceeded to grab my face very hard to open my mouth. I said ouch and he just ignored me. I got a bruise on my face. Then acouplevdays ago he yanked my head back pulled my hair really hard because i asked him to check my scalp. Im reporting bim to the college of physicians and surgeons.if anyone else has had a similar experience please post it.there is something wrong with this man.
The reason why his staff are so bagmd is because they have go work with him. He goes out of his way to make you feel stupid. And talks really loud as if he has a hearingproblem or just to make the pacient feel stupid. The wait is ridiculous. Need better scheduling. The reason whythe wait is so long is so if someonecancels then the neectperson is there waiting for him. All he cares about is the money.
I was referred to this doctor after my g p diagnosed me with skin cancer. I was told the appointment was a 6 month wait. This is unacceptable and the health care system is useless with wait times of this length. I was unable to be referred to anyone else because I was determined to be his patient from seeing him before (5 years ago for an unrelated issue). I found a dermatologist in Toronto and was given an appointment within 3 weeks. And they were so caring even on the phone. See Toronto dermatology centre.
