Biography & Education

Biography

Lisa Turner, M.D., completed her medical degree at the University of Chicago, and stayed there to complete her residency in dermatology. Following her residency, she practiced in Chicago for three years as part of a multi-specialty group affiliated with Northwestern University Hospitals.

Dr. Turner’s philosophy is that when it comes to patient care, no concern is too small. She feels that as a dermatologist, she can do much to improve the quality of life for her patients. “It’s really rewarding to see patients who are happy because their skin is improved,” she says.

Outside of the office, Dr. Turner enjoys spending time with her husband, Craig Turner, M.D., a urologist, and their daughters, Kate and Jamie. Her favorite activities include running, skiing and dancing.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

The referral was easy. Getting an appointment took over 6 weeks, which is unreasonable. [...]

Front receptionist was polite yet unable to schedule an apt for my college aged daughter within the next 4 months with Dr. Turner because she had already seen another derm in this practice, which was over 4 years ago if not longer. [...] Dr. Turner was friendly yet spoke WAY TOO FAST and the examination went very fast as well. Definitely felt like this was a RUSHED appt. Disappointing for a first time new patient establishing a baseline with a new doctor. As long as I do not have major dermatology needs, this style is fine. Should I require more in depth support, then I will address that when necessary.

In general, the amount of time allotted to each patient seems to be too short. I feel sometimes the doctor is rushed for time because maybe a patient before me came late or whatever the problem I cannot say. It seemed Lisa has to talk so fast. Seems very stressful for the doctor to get everyone in.

Except for my very first appointment-- Dr. Lisa Turner has always rushed me through the appointment. Feel like she is cramming in patients. My last appointment from me being called, put in room, changed for the checkup, her checking me, giving me a prescription and leaving me --was less than 15 minutes. I don't feel like I am being genuinely cared for. I will not being going back to her.

PRR's not warm - for a while I came in three times/week and was treated as a complete stranger each time. Wish Dr. Turner was a little less rushed - she's very efficient but I don't feel encouraged to complete my questions.
