I have worked in the medical field and studied alternate care for nealy 50 years and Dr. Turner is one of the best there is. He listens and doesn't use the typical Rx pad or surgery unless it is really needed. He is very caring and takes into consideration where you are coming from in his treatments. He has a fantastic bedside manner. One day at work in Franklin, 3 of us began talking about our doctor and I asked if they were talking about Dr Turner and we were all surprised that we all went to the same doctor and were absolutely delighted with him. I have no idea where anyone could get a negative impression of him.

My husband and I have both had occasion to be treated by Dr. Turner in the walk-in clinic. He is a very focused doctor, looking only to get at the root of the problem and not waste any time. He treated us with respect although not chatty...that was fine as he gave extremely effective care and had an attitude of true concern for us. I am thankful we have him in our community. As far as the support staff, many of them have a lot to learn about treating patients respectfully and as if they are real people an not just an object.

I was troubled to read the last review of Dr. Turner and Core Physicians. I am a patient of Dr. Mann and my husband is a patient of Dr. Turner. Both physicians have provided quality care and have NOT recommended costly solutions. As a patient, it is MY job to question costs/check with insurance before agreeing to procedures--there is no way that doctors can keep track of which insurance plans pay for what services.

Dr David M Turner and Core Physician's as a whole are not very good on the business side of there practice. Botched Insurance billing, failing to file insurance claims in a timely manner resulting in claim rejections, failing to discuss cost involved with optional procedures. Poor bedside manners. No follow up. Recommending the most expensive route for any diagnosis and treatment plan. They service Columbia Tn not New York. People don't have a lot of money here. We need Medical treatment that is cost effective. Example The blood work Dr Turner ordered (they push hormone replacement therapy at this clinic)cost $700. I had it done twice before the bill came and I discovered insurance does not cover hormone replacement therapy.(It is not essential for good health) Maybe Core Physician's Group should inform patients of the cost involved with optional treatment programs. $1400 for lab work!!! Bleeding hemorrhoid, get a colonoscopy and don't fix the hemorrhoid while your already unconscious in a surgery suit. Make another surgery appointment and $2500 down the drain and still have a bleeding hemorrhoid In my opinion stay away from Core Physician'sGroup, Dr Anuradha P Mann, and Dr David M Turner.
