    Dr. Turnipseed has been the most amazing Dr. I’ve had and it took me a long time to find him. He’s very flexible and understanding and has truly been there for me and my family. He truly carted and always listens to what I have to say which is important to me. I won’t ever go anywhere else!!

  • Brenda Floerke

    Dr. Turnipseed is wonderful! He is very attentive, punctual for appointments, answers his “valant messages” promptly, always tries to help out with finances on medicines not covered by insurance, love his “new” office and staff, and has helped me so much these past few years. Wish I had found him years ago – but thankful for him now! In fact, I have moved from Austin and continue to drive from out of town to meet with him!

    Dr.Turnipseed is always prompt, kind and knows what he’s doing. He actually cares about my health. His office is always willing to answer my questions, and made sure I always knew what they were doing step by step. Dr.T worked hard to calm my anxieties and then took plenty of time to allow me to relax and decompress instead of rushing me out the door. My Meds are just right, and I know if that changes he will work hard to get me back to ME!

    I have been working with Dr. Turnipseed at Roots Behavioral Health for about 3 years now. During this time I lost my ability to work for a living, my Mother to Cancer, and my husband is diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer, undergoing his 2nd round of Chemo. It has been a very rough time and Dr. T. has been there for me every step of the way. His front office staff is extremely polite and always willing to go that extra mile when needed. And the office is growing so fast, they are definitely ahead of their time in Austin for Psychiatric care. I do recommend Dr. Turnipseed and Roots Behavioral Health to my friends and would to you as well. I found both of them to be extremely helpful.
