Great doctor, incompetent staff

The doctor was very thorough, caring and knowledgeable. She does not use the EHR system which is problematic for me as I have multiple health and see several doctors and need to be able to keep everyone informed; however, I could work with that. What I cannot work with is a rude, lazy, incompetent staff. It takes them 4 days to call in a prescription the doctor notates on the day of your visit. They don’t feel it’s necessary to include your phone number when sending out referrals to other doctors. Certainly don’t ask a question unless you want to be treated like a two year old. So disappointing because Dr. Turse is the type of doctor that we all look for but the last thing you need when you are ill is a bunch of attitude and nastiness. May want to look elsewhere.

Cannot get a return phone call

I was able to make an appointment as a new patient but have since left 4 messages trying to get information on how to get my records sent to Dr. Turse. I have yet to have any of my phone calls returned. I'm a little surprised given all the good ratings on this site. I will update after my first appointment.

Very Thorough

Dr.Turse is very knowledgeable and seems very concerned of her patients. I love the fact that I can get a hold of her at any time and I know she puts in a lot of work in each and everyone of her patients, My wife and I now see her and hopefully she can be our Dr. for years to come.
