I can’t even begin to brag about how phenomenal Dr. Turnquest and his staff were during this process. I almost 2 weeks post op and has experienced the best surgical treatment ever!!! He’s kind, thorough, and a expert in his field.Show more He communicates with you in great details. He truly care for his patients and you can feel it. I had a gastric sleeve and only required pain medication for 3 days max. His office staff members are very kind and has great customer service skills. They don’t make you feel like you’re bothering them. Very helpful team. I cannot begin to thank Dominique, his bariatric coordinator for all her help. She made me have the easiest experience ever. Also, his nurse is so sweet as well. I think her name is Marsha. Overall, I would recommend him to EVERYONE! Also, I have to mention Jennifer at HCA Northwest. His hospital team is freaking amazing. Incredible stay! I’m so excited to see my overall results. Thank you for setting me up for a healthier life. I genuinely appreciate all of you!
