Dr. John Turner is extremely skilled in his area of expertise of back, neck, & brain healing & injury recover. Technically he is the first nerosurgen the Big Island of HI ever had & in my opinion he is a Godsend :)! He uses a wide array of tools & techniques w/ his patients to make sure he can give the best treatment possible while u are under his care! His bedside manner is one of the best I have ever encountered & w/ my "white coat syndrome" & panic disorder w/ aggoriphobia liking a doctor after the first initial consultation is usually tough for me. With his caring demeanor, patients, & lack of the normal holier than thou attitude that most doctors have, he has an extremely pleasant bedside manner & not only does he care about ur pain & health issues, but also cares about getting to know u as a person. He also has some extremely interesting views on patient care that all & all makes him honestly one of the nicest, most caring doctors I have ever had the pleasure of being treated by. O' & by the way, if u do have white coat syndrome u don't have to worry about Dr. Turner triggering it, his work cloths consist of Aloha shirts, :) lol (Don't worry, I know that the doctor's dress isn't what triggers white coat syndrome)! I do have to say that just from meeting him that one day it would probably be tough to see Dr. Turner ever triggering anyones panic disorders or even having a bad day himself & even if he was, his patient would probably never notice due to how nice Dr. Turner comes off as. He is also extreamly intelligent in western AND eastern medicine. He wants to familiarize himself w/ as many methods of healing that he possibly can. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking care in his area of expertice!
