I have been a patient of Dr. Turecki for quite some time, and during that time he has shown himself tobe one of the most the professional, keen, involved, and kind psychiatrists in the field. He has a unique ability of being able to diagnose and pinpoint issues, along with a manner of talking with you which allows you to implement his advice/guidance in your life. For me personally, he has been very active and responsive when there have been crises in my life, calling and going out his way to check in because he truly cares. These qualities, among how sharp he is and picks up on things, have changed and guided my life in a healthy direction. I wish that everyone in need of help with any type of psychiatric issue could receive this level of care.

Dr. Turecki has been extremely helpful to me. He has been flexible in appointment times/visits but more importantly he has provided proper med management. He also has a keen sense of how to analyze a situation and cut through the "noise"that was preventing me from tackling my main psychological issues. I highly recommend him.

I am so grateful I made that first appointment with Dr. Turecki. I was hopeless and did not know what to do with my 13 year old's deviant and abnormal behavior. With the help and expertise of Dr. Turecki I watchedher start to climb out of a severe depression within weeks of our first visit. I could not be happier with the initial results. He addresses all contributors to the child's behavior from the medical to family dynamics. He is attentive, thoughtful, encouraging, nonjudgmental and open to questions that may challenge him without making anyone feel uncomfortable. I believe my child is on the road to living to her fullest potential and that we are on the road to improving our mother-child bond as well. We owe it all to Dr. T. You will not regret it as you or your loved one's life is worth the premium rates.

As someone who has never visited a psychiatrist before, Dr Turecki was a surprise. He is very understanding and knowledgeable in his field and I certainly appreciate his point of view on things. It's hard for me as an adult (setin my ways) to put his advice into practice sometimes but his helpful guidance to actively work on my anxiety and mild add is something that I very much appreciate.

Dr. Turecki was very easy to schedule with and accessible. He is responsive to ZocDoc requests, and reached out to confirm. I did not have to wait to be seen and have been very satisfied with the services rendered.
