Dr. Turkowski is undeniably brilliant and gifted at his craft. Don't be deterred by possible initial misconceptions of his less than effusive bedside manor. He is the constant consummate professional and handles his patients with a matter of factness that is truly appreciated. He provides the utmost in superior care and will always do what is right for you or your child. As a parent, don't forget honesty from doctors is often times not received well when your emotions are clouding your judgment. It's easy to displace your feelings of anxiety and concern on "the messenger." He has gained the respect of his colleagues who in my time of need said " If it were my child there is no one else i would trust to oversee his care and operate on. He is truly an artist in the operating room." To hear nothing but the most positive and stellar feedback from his staff that work in such close proximity with him daily is reassurance enough that he truly is as wonderful as I have come to realize and appreciate. Additionally, once you have cracked his otherwise serious exterior you come to find out he has a rather dry and witty sense of humor and is easy to joke around with. He takes a great deal of pride in his work and is constantly striving for and will settle for nothing short of excellence and perfection. I firmly believe that he is on the cutting edge of research and abreast of the latest advancements in burn care. As a result, this enables him to go out on a limb and try new experimental techniques that ultimately result in better final outcomes for patients with minimally invasive techniques. Any other doctor would have ended up grafting my baby's leg; however, Dr.Turkowski at the 11th hour switched gears and went for something out of the box. This decision led to her avoiding a major surgery,a faster recovery, less scaring and an overall better experience in the end. His follow up care and the accommodations he has made for her have not been overlooked or under appreciated. He continues to be actively involved in managing her ongoing recovery with great attention to detail. I have the utmost trust and confidence in Dr.Turkowski and his team. Throughout my daughters long stay at the hospital, the constant attention and level of care was truly unparalleled. Dr. Turkowski is truly an all encompassing force of excellence.

Without a doubt, Dr. Turkowski is by far one of the worst doctors I've ever had to deal with. He not only fails to communicate his diagnosis but his follow-up is truly lacking. He does not come prepared to the follow-up examination and becomes agitated when the patient asks alot of questions concerning their medical condition. And once agitated, he would belittle his staff in full view of the patient. In my opinion, this doctor is genuinely unprofessional and is better suited in radiology where he is kept away from sick patients and hospital staff.
