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".
