These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.

Dr. Turok and his team changed my life. In a course of 2 years, I gained 30 lbs out of the blue. I tried diets, exercise, getting blood work done, and seeing a nutritionist to help gain control of this problem. Everything failed. So I looked into getting some sort of liposuction done. When I looked at Dr. Turoks website I noticed he had a few different options that I thought might work for me, so I scheduled a consolation. It was easy to make an appointment, and the staff was able to get me in within 3 days of making my first call. On the day of my first consultation I went my mom came with me, and we were greeted by a very happy and upbeat nurse named Audrey. She took us back into one of the rooms where we talked about my issues, results, as well as showing me a book of their previous patients and their success stories. Once we narrowed down what I was looking for Dr. Turok came into the room. He was genuinely nice and friendly, and really listened to what I had to say in terms of my weight gain and how I wanted to look post op.He took a closer look at me and explained all the procedures I was looking at in greater detail. Since he was listening to what I wanted and what my goals were, Dr. Turok was able to help me decide on going through with the laser liposuction surgery for my abdomen and flanks. We scheduled my surgery date for just TWO weeks later.The day of the surgery came, and I was a little bit nervous becuase I had never gone through any type of surgery before in my life. My mom dropped me off and stayed with me for a while. But I was in great hands with the staff. Two nurses were in the room with me the WHOLE time during my procedure. They would talk to me and help keep me calm when I would show signs of slight pain.I instantly saw great results just three days later, and then a month later. Its been a little bit over a year and I have been able to lose over 25 lbs and have gone down about 5 pants sizes! Dr. Turok did wonderful work, and I could not thank him and his staff enough. Everyone was very nice and genuine, as well as very accommodating. I couldnt have made a better decision with this Dr!!! I am happier with my new body and more confident than I have ever been!Thank you Dr. Turok and staff for changing my life!!
I was considering a tummy tuck, when in my research for a doctor, came across Cool Lipo and Dr. Turok. When I called for a consult, I was nervous but was immediately assured with a sweet calm voice on the other end of the phone. When I went in for my consult, again I was put at ease right away. All my questions about the procedure were answered and I knew this was a better option for me than major sugery. I already knew that Dr. Turok is a leader in this field from all the other research that I had done, so I made my appt for my belly to be done. Dr. Turok is so sweet and kind. He really cared about me as a patient and wanted to take as much time as he needed to make sure my results were good. I am so happy with the results I recently went back to get my hips and thighs sculpted. He got rid of saddlebags that I had since I was a teenager. My pants fit so much better and I am much more confident. Dr. Turok has an amazing eye for detail and his staff are top notch and caring, as well. I would highly recommend him.
I came to Dr. Turok's office to have liposuction done because I had cellulite I wanted removed and my skin needed much tightening. I wanted the procedure done on my flanks, inner and outter thighs, knees, and my stomach. I found Dr. Turok to not only be the most knowledgeable Dr. I met in my search for a surgeon, but he also extremely knowledgable in all aspects of health care. My mother has an extremely rare blood disease and Dr. Turok knew all about it. All the other Dr's had not heard of it. He is also knowledgeable in regards to supplments and holistic measures. He is a very well rounded surgeon which put me at ease instantly.I am so pleased with the results. Everyone I see has noticed them. I can finally wear shorts again without being embarrased. My skin has tightened up and I look great!The other great thing about Dr. Turok's office is that he has a wonderful staff. They are always professional and helpful. They create a very warm and inviting atmosphere. I couldn't have choosen a better doctor! I recommend him to anyone and everyone looking to have a procedure done.
I am so happy with my experiences with Dr. Turok, Audrey, Katie, Theresa, Robin, and Danielle. Everyone was caring and knowledgeable from start to finish. All my questions were answered and the procedures were explained thoroughly. I knew I had made the right decision to have the procedures done, every time I talked with Dr. Turok or one of his staff. It does feel like a family that cares for you. My results are awesome. I am very, very happy with the way I feel and my new look. Thanks to all of you!!!!
