Dr. Turro has to be one of the best doctors in all of Ocean County. I’ve never felt so comfortable with a doctor before. He is kind, patient, has a great sense of humor and above all, he treats you like a priority and not just a number. He went above and beyond to be thorough and listened to all my concerns. His office staff is amazing as well. Thank you again! I feel so much better just knowing I have a primary doctor that I’m comfortable with.

Dr. Turro was very kind, polite and extremely knowledgeable. I did not feel rushed which is a refreshing change. This was my first visit and I left very impressed. Dr. Turro has many years of experience and is very confident in himself. He is easy to talk to and has a nice sense of humor. He quickly grasped all of my health issues and gave me very good helpful advice which I intend to follow. My husband is a physician and I am a nurse so we look carefully when selecting a physician for treatment. Dr. Turro’s credentials are excellent and his experience extensive. I am thrilled to have met him and will continue to follow my care with him. I recommend him highly.
