"Knowledgeable, Gets results, great place to go. Dr. Turnbull's expertise of the human body is reassuring and comforting. Your are literally in good hands in his care. I've worked with MANY doctors in the area and he is certainly among the very best. His specialties have expanded into functional medicine, metabolism, hormones and brain function as well. This office is a great choice."  A.V.

"More than Great Chiropractic Care. I have been a patient of Dr. Turnbull's for over 4 years. I was first referred to him by my PCP for neck problems. Dr. T. spent a great deal of time genuinely listening to my concerns and asking lots of questions to pinpoint my problem. He diagnosed me and recommended some changes to my everyday routine to help me correct my neck issues and along with periodic adjustments from him, I got better. 

Since then, I have used Dr. Turnbull's services to help me rehabilitate from a bicycle accident that injured my AC joint; as well as from an injury that fractured both the tibia and fibula of my right ankle. I’m happy to say that I am recovered from both, thanks to his care. 

More recently, I have gone to Dr. T. for his expertise in functional physiology, where he has helped me solve some issues with pre-diabetes and physical endurance by identifying underlying metabolic issues and prescribing natural supplements and changes to my diet that have solved my problems. 

I highly recommend Dr. Turnbull and his methodology. I’ve received no less than the best care available, from a very talented, kind, caring and sincere doctor." J.F
