This time I went to Dr. Turer with a specific concern, and he was able to take a look at itand reassure me that my right eye was fine. He is very professional and uses his time with me to great advantage, so that he is never late, I am attended to and on my way quickly and efficiently.

About Dr. Gary Turer

Gary E. Turer, MD, Board Certified-Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology, provides advanced comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages. Unlike what one experiences in most other practices in the metropolitan area, Dr. Turer conducts all aspects of the ophthalmic examination personally, without the use of technicians. He employs state-of-the-art diagnostics for the full spectrum of eye conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, eye allergies, dry eyes, ocular trauma, and prescribing glasses. He provides leading edge treatments, such as co-managing laser premium lens cataract surgery. Please note, however, that Dr. Turer does NOT fit or dispense contact lenses. Dr. Turer was awarded the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and graduated Cum Laude from Union College in Schenectady, NY in 1981. He received his medical school training at New York Medical College in 1985. He remained in New York to complete his ophthalmology residency at New York Medical College, where he was appointed to the position of Chief Resident at several N.Y. hospitals, and was responsible for the training and supervision of resident surgeons. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and The Westchester County Medical Society. He has been named by his peers as a "Top Doctor" by Castle Connolly Medical LTD. for the past several years. Dr. Turer takes the time to get to know each of his patients on an individual basis and works to make sure that each patient is comfortable with their vision and ophthalmic health. It is this attentive and personalized approach to patient care, as well as his expertise, that patients appreciate the most about him.

This was my first time going to Dr. Turer and I could not be happier with my visit! He took us right away and seemed thorough and professional. My daughter has special needs and can be difficult to handle at times,but Dr. Turer was patient and friendly throughout our visit. Afriend told me that Dr. Turer was great with their kids and he did not disappoint! It’s hard to find good doctors that take my insurance (Fidelis), making Dr. Turer a rare find!

I had a wonderful visit with Dr Turer. I didn't have wait at all, and he and his staff were as nice as could be. Not only was Dr Turer incredibly professional and knowledgeable, but he was very kind and patient.I had to bring my two-year-old with me, who was a bit fussy, but Dr T was so understanding and even gave the little guy something to play with to keep him occupied! 5 stars all the way :)

Highly recommend. The office was extremely well run, and Dr. Turer took me right away. I was a bit nervous and had a lot of questions, but Dr. Turer was very kind and understanding. He didn't rush me at all, andtook his time to make sure I was comfortable. On top of everything, he even takes Medicaid! So many doctors these days don't - I was extremely impressed with the quality of care.

Great! Dr. Turer was very professional, patiently taking the time to answer all my questions throughout the visit. He’s also extremely nice! In particular, he’s terrific with kids, as he took great care when examining my two boys and even crackeda joke or two. He really put them at ease, which isn’t something you necessarily see all the time. They both told me on the ride home that he’s their favorite doctor,, and I can’t say I disagree. He’s also kind enough to take insurance like Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care Plans, as well as examine developmentally disabled people. Will be recommending him to anyone in need of a good eye doctor!

Very impersonal with kids, took my 2 kids and they were very rushed with him switching the lens to measure glasses-he expects a child to decide right at the second when she is being asked which lens was better (a childwho never used glasses)..was very rushed through it and he even did not wait for the answer and decided for a child-when I asked him to wait, he said oh usually it will take her time to adjust and she can come back if it does not work... seriously!!

I have been to Dr. Turer several times through the years and his office is always run extremely efficiently! His secretaries are kind and helpful, and I never have to wait long before being seen. In fact, of all doctors Ihave ever been to, he has consistently had the shortest wait time. In regard to bedside manner, Dr. Turer is very friendly and attentive. I normally get nervous around doctors but he is very calming and reassuring. He always takes the time to ask how I'm doing, and is a great person to talk Yankees with! As a doctor he takes the time to answer all my questions and gives a very thorough exam. When I have had problems he is able to diagnose, explain, and solve them. The two times I have had an eye emergencies, he was helpful over the phone and able to fit me into his schedule the next day. The specialist he referred me too was also very good. Overall he has been a phenomenal doctor for me and I couldn't imagine seeing a different eye doctor.

I had an excellent appointment with Dr, Turer! His front office was warm and friendly, and he took me into his office right away. He diagnosed by issue with ease and reassured me that I would be fine. He seemed tobe a very articulate, friendly, and kind man. I will be happy to recommend him to my friends and family for their eye care. Truly one of the best experiences I have had with a physician ever!

The visit itself was nice, however the reason I saw this doctor was to get a prescription for contact lenses which I stated in the questionnaire zocdoc provided prior to the appointment, but this doctor does not fit patients for lenses,so in essence this was a waste of my time. If you're looking for a glasses prescription or general eye health check up, this doctor is great - friendly, time efficient, centrally located, and professional. I wish zocdoc and this office were in clearer communication so that I could have been notified beforehand to make my appointment elsewhere for contact lenses.

Excellent visit! Dr. Turer was both professional and personable. He took me right away (his staff was equally friendly and courteous), and he explained everything clearly during the exam and was patient when I had questions. He even took thetime to ask me about myself and clearly has a warm personality. Definitely felt like I was in good hands, and honestly can’t think of a single complaint – would absolutely recommend!
