bio

Grant Turek, MD is a board-certified pediatric neurologist and clinical neurophysiology specialist at Dayton Children's Hospital. Dr. Turek is no stranger to the Dayton region. He attended the University of Dayton where he completed his undergraduate degree in pre-medicine and mechanical engineering technology. After his time in Dayton, he completed his medical school education at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in Illinois. He then went on to complete a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology, a mini-fellowship in epilepsy and a residency in child neurology at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. Dr. Turek has returned to Dayton to join pediatric neurology practice at Dayton Children's, where he aims to help children and families to overcome any roadblock to a child's growth and development.  He believes that every kid deserves a happy and healthy childhood.

Dr. Turek chose to specialize in pediatric neurology because the way the brain and nervous system work is unique and inspiring. It excites him to think that while we know so much about the brain, we continue to learn new things daily. When asked why he loves working with children he said, "Their world is still so full of potential and possibility. Even children with complex medical conditions have the capacity to change the world if they have the willpower and many of them do".
