As a board-certified internist, Dr. Turner applies scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. He is affiliated with Mercy Hospital Joplin and Freeman Health System, both of which are located in Joplin, Missouri. 

As a part of Mercy, one of the top five large U.S. health systems, Mercy Hospital Joplin is a hospital whose commitment dates back to 1896 when the Sisters of Mercy began caring for the community. When there was a need, Mercy answers. 

Locally owned, not-for-profit and nationally recognized, Freeman Health System includes Freeman Hospital West, Freeman Hospital East, Freeman Neosho Hospital and Ozark Center – the area’s largest provider of behavioral health services – as well as two urgent care clinics, dozens of physician clinics, and a variety of specialty services. Their mission is “to improve the health of the communities we serve through contemporary, innovative, quality healthcare solutions.”

The doctor’s acclaimed career in medicine began in 1985 when he earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree from the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine – University of North Texas Health Science Center. He then went on to complete his residency in internal medicine at the Tulsa Regional Medical Center in Oklahoma.

Before long, he became board-certified in internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine,  a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.

Internal medicine or general medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists. They manage and prevent common and complex diseases by providing comprehensive care and promoting overall well-being.
