Dr. Turnure received his medical degree and did his Family Residency training at Loma Linda University in Southern California where he served as Chief Resident. Prior to starting Turnure Medical Group, he worked as an Associate Clinical Professor at the UC Davis/Sutter Family Medicine Residency Program. He is double boarded in Family Medicine and Obesity Medicine. He is an active member of the Obesity Medicine Association, American Academy of Family Physicians and the Christian Medical and Dental Society.
In addition to the broad spectrum of Family Medicine, Dr. Turnure has sub-specialized in Neurological Rehabilitation for stroke, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain-injured patients. He is actively involved in researching the most effective techniques and modalities available in treating these conditions.
Dr. Turnure is constantly looking for ways to improve and continue his education. His motto is “one can never stop learning” and his love for reading facilitates this desire. By studying and listening to his patients he became convinced that many chronic illnesses like heart disease, many cancers, obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure could be prevented or treated through diet and exercise. Seeing a real need to learn more he started educating himself in the field of medical weight loss. In 2009 with the help of his daughter (Natasha, our Nutritionist), he started a Medical Weight Loss and Nutrition program at Turnure Medical Group. In 2012, he became Board Certified in the field of Obesity Medicine.
Cosmetic medicine is also a special interest of Dr. Turnure’s. In 2014 he opened La Bella Vita Medi Spa across the parking lot from the TMG office. La Bella Vita provides “state of the art” aesthetic medical procedures that produce the best possible non-surgical outcomes with very minimal downtime. See www.LaBellaVitaMediSpa.com for more information.
Dr. Turnure thoroughly enjoys spending time in the outdoors with his grown children, wife and grandson Elijah. He enjoys fishing, hunting, boating, snow skiing and running. He and Mrs. Turnure are also very involved in leadership at Destiny Christian Church in Rocklin.
