Dr. Douglas Michael “Mike” Turner, MD, is an OB/GYN practicing in our Amory and Columbus offices. He joined P&S in 2014.
Dr. Turner felt God calling him to medicine while a teenager on a mission trip to Botswana. “I was hesitant at first because I thought I wanted to be a teacher,” says Dr. Turner. “Now that I have to help my kids with homework, I see that God definitely knew best!”
While in medical school, he discovered the joy of delivery babies. He says that his favorite part of his job is “building friendships with patients and their families over 9 months. You really start to miss seeing people after the baby is born and they don’t have to come back so often.”
He also gets tremendous joy from helping people through hard pregnancies or difficult surgeries and seeing them fully recover. Dr. Turner has a passion for “taking care of the hard conditions that no one else will.” He is not afraid of a challenge and wants to provide the best care even to patients with complex diagnoses or difficult medical histories.
His patients love his fun-loving but laid-back personality. As he often says, “There is nothing you can’t talk to me about.”
Dr. Turner and his wife, Lea, have a large family and love spending time together. He is a big fan of basketball and college football, and he loves traveling for fun as well as on mission trips with his church.
“Dr. Turner was easy to talk to and HE LISTENED TO ME AND MY CONCERNS!!! I am so glad I got him for my Dr.!!” – Dori W.
“Couldn’t ask for a better Dr. He actually listens and makes sure I am comfortable and cares about his patients. He is easy to talk to and he talks to me without the medical lingo! He is the BEST in my book, will never have another doctor as long he is around!” – LeighAnna P.
