Philosophy of Patient Care
Urologic problems are often associated with significant pain and social embarrassment. Dr. Turk believes in listening to his patients about how their disease is affecting their life. When appropriate, Dr. Turk believes in using minimally invasive treatments for his patients to reduce pain and lead to a faster return to normal activities.

Biography
Following his urology residency at the University of Virginia and fellowship in endourology at theLoyola University Health System, Dr. Turk joined the faculty at Loyola University. Since that time, he has built a practice of general urology patients with emphasis on using minimally invasive treatments for all aspect of urologic disease.
