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.

Lisa is a great dermatologist. She talks very fast and moves very fast. While I love her efficiency, sometimes it feels so hurried that I feel I ma being rushed so she can get to her next appointment. [...]

The care provider was great, but I can't believe that it takes 3 months to get in as a new patient. I didn't have an urgent issue, but if I did (skin cancer?) then I would have been very upset.

The provider was in a hurry. I had more questions about my skin problems, but she was rushing somewhere else maybe because the appointment was scheduled for only 15 min. I don't think it is enough for the first consultation. Though my provider didn't answer on more questions,I satisfied with the medicine she recommended. They are working.

I phoned the day after Christmas (a Friday) for an urgent dermatological issue & was told that a doctor on call would phone me, but no-one did. my doctor's office phoned me on Monday & scheduled an appointment on Tuesday, but it was a fairly miserable weekend. I would not have phoned that day unless I had a serious concern; not getting a call from the doctor who should have been *on call* was unacceptable.
