Dr Turner is known for his ability to listen with discernment and compassion. He provides a fresh, comprehensive approach from an evidence-based perspective that isn’t necessarily limited to the traditional focus on medications and surgery. This frequently helps him identify previously unrecognized causes of illness.

Dr Turner has multiple board certifications and over 40 years of training and experience in neuroscience.
Any conditions can be discussed with Dr Turner that relate to brain dysregulation, such as seizures, headaches, tics, anxiety, fear, depression, fatigue, poor sleep, developmental delays, alterations in consciousness, lack of motivation, poor self-esteem, and even gut problems.

professional to the Zoom conversation. It’s entirely up to you.
You will experience a meeting with a healthcare professional who truly listens to your history—your story—and who synthesizes all your information to help make more sense of what has been going on. More than just connecting with a life-giving person, you can expect to learn much about the history and state of healthcare today and discover sources of health problems that you may not have previously thought of.
What do I need to provide in advance of the meeting (for example, medical history, EEGs, other tests)?
Before the meeting, you will be sent a link to upload any information you want Dr Turner to have. It will go into a protected, security-enhanced Dropbox folder. This information will be reviewed by you and Dr Turner during the conversation. Examples of information to upload are EEGs, EEG and MRI reports, and records from others on your healthcare team. You may also wish to include your goals for the conversation with Dr Turner, as well as a summary of the situation in your own words. The meeting is conducted on a security-enhanced Zoom platform.
What technology and programs are required for the meeting? Can it be done over the phone if I don’t have a computer or am not computer-proficient?
Meetings are easily conducted via a Zoom platform (HIPAA-compliant), and you will receive an invitation via email shortly before the meeting. In rare situations, the meeting can take place over a regular phone line. Dr Turner believes that a high-quality audio-visual platform promotes the best communication and conversation.
