If you are a single father and worried about your child then look for another Dr.  She is a rude person that claims to be a child pyscologist; however, when you ask her how many children she has raised, her only answer is her dog that she treats better than your child.  Another good way to look for yourself about this woman's views on life and family structure is to search for her envolvement in taking away a child from a deserving father in Ex Parte J.M.F.  Alabama Supreme Court. 730 So.2d 1190 June 19, 1998.

My child was seen by Turnbow. When I asked my child what her sessions were like, she said all she did was play with Turnbow's dogs, and Turnbow gave her candy.
Turnbow is rude, money-hungry, and did not help my child at all. She is also a liar, and it is a fact. All this therapist knows about ahildren, she learned from books. She is only a mother to her dogs.

I am so glad I found Dr. Turnbow.  She actually listens, understands, and has helped me and my daughter.  She returns phone calls personally and promptly and has always gone out of her way to make us feel like she truly cares.

Dr. Turnbow has been a wonderful therapist for my son.  She has treated him with great compassion and care and has helped him work through a significant trauma.  She has also worked with me to be better able to parent a child who has undergone trauma.  I would definitely recommended her.

Dr. Karen Turnbow is extremely rude and unprofessional. When she found out that our particular insurance didn't carry her as a provider, I called to cancel all future appointments for my child. I asked her for recommendations of anyone else she might know that we could see to get my child the help she needs. She told me "I will not give you any recommendations whatsoever." A person in her position should have the best interest of the patient in mind at all times, and it is clear to me that Dr. Turnbow is not only rude, but unwilling to help you, if she isn't the one collecting the paycheck. My child is also extremely frightened of dogs. Dr. Turnbow had two dogs in her office and made no attempt to get them away from my child as we entered her office after we repeatedly told her that our child is terrified of dogs. Completely unprofessional and rude. Stay as far away from this psychologist as possible. She absolutely does not have her patient's best interest at heart.
