Great experience, after a bad experience

I first went to a hack that botched my surgery. Dr. Erturk was one of the best doctors i have ever visited. Quick and effective surgery. Very smart man. I would recommend him to anyone.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Way overbooked and bedside manner borders on dismissive

Don't expect to have your questions answered. Dr. Erturk zips in and right out. He has his nurse practitioner do the work and then inform him what she has learned. So he apparently feels he doesn't need to spend time talking with you since she already has. When you ask for a comparison of x-rays from 2 visits, he is evasive and unsure about the location and size of kidney stones in comparison explanation. He has no time to sit and talk to you about possible plans for reducing kidney stones. All of this is left up to the nurse practitioner because he is now on to the next patient. I find him to be arrogant and dismissive making me feel ( even though I am an educator, that I am not intelligent enough for him to waste his time explaining details. His staff is either overworked or uneducated about how to read his orders. After 4 phone calls, 2 emails, a visit to the office, no one was really sure what kind of urine test I was supposed to have before my appointment. Everyone gave a different answer. I ended up doing tests that were not ordered and that I didn't need.

Nice enough guy, just doesn't spend a lot of time with you.

I've had nothing but pleasantries with Dr. Erturk, but he does seem to be in a rush a lot. He also has a habit of asking me what my concerns are, and then interrupting me as I'm halfway through to ask a new question.
