After graduating from the Bronx High School of Science (Bronx NY) in 1981, Dr. Turner majored in chemistry and minored in math at Howard University (Washington DC). He subsequently completed his B.S. degree in Environmental Health Science at York College/City University of New York in 1992, after being honorably discharged from the United States Army Reserves. He was accepted into the University of Medicine and Dentistry/Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (now Rutgers University Medical School) where he completed a combined MD/MPH degree in 1997, and in 2000 he completed a residency in Family Medicine at Duke/Southern Regional AHEC in Fayetteville, NC. He started practicing in Burgaw NC, subsequently moving to Sarasota FL, where he became a partner at a large multispecialty medical group over the next five years. He decided to return to residency in 2005 to study anatomic and clinical pathology.
Dr. Turner completed a residency in Pathology at the University of Florida, College of Medicine (Gainesville) in 2009, while also finishing a second Master degree in Health Administration (MHA) at the University of South Florida, College of Public Health (Tampa). He subsequently completed fellowships in general surgical pathology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX (2010), oncologic surgical pathology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY (2011), and breast and gynecologic pathology at Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT (2012).
Today, Dr. Turner serves as a faculty member on the breast and gynecologic pathology subspecialty services in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at URMC. He provides anatomic pathology services at both Highland Hospital and Strong Memorial Hospital, while also providing clinical pathology services at Highland Hospital. Dr. Turner also continues to provide direct patient care services, providing consultation services about 40 -50 hours a month with Team Health Western New York Immediate Care in Buffalo NY, and Team Health Rochester Immediate Care in Rochester NY.
Dr. Turner has research interests in cancer biology and cancer outcomes, including pathologic and non-pathologic correlates of breast cancer outcomes, the role of the tumor microenvironment in breast cancer outcomes, and the role of health care disparities in breast cancer outcomes. He has authored or co-authored several recent publications including: Use of modified Magee equations and histologic criteria to predict the Oncotype DX® recurrence score (Mod Pathology, 2015); Pathologic Diagnosis, Immunohistochemistry, Multigene Assays and Breast Cancer Treatment: Progress toward ‘Precision’ Cancer Therapy (Biotechnic & Histochemistry, 2015); and, Nomograms to predict the likelihood of upgrade of Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia diagnosed on a core needle biopsy in mammographically detected lesions (Histopathology, 2014). He also stays active in the primary care literature, having recently authored a chapter with Dr. David Hicks on breast cancer in the popular family medicine text book Family Medicine: Principles and Practices, 7th edition (2016).
