Meet Our Santa Barbara Gynecologist

Turner Medical Arts in Santa Barbara, California, encompasses all areas of female health with exceptional care. We use state-of-the-art technology along with cutting edge procedures, creating superior results in general gynecology, minimally invasive gynecological surgery, vaginal rejuvenation, hormone replacement therapy, aesthetics and medical weight loss. 

We offer a wide array of women’s health care treatments and therapies with an emphasis on treating the whole woman, not just a particular concern. Our patient centric approach is evident in every service we provide: labiaplasty, vaginal rejuvenation, hysterectomy, hormone replacement therapy, laser hair removal, botox and skin rejuvenation treatments, as well as treatment for incontinence and endometriosis. 

Feminine Health starts with a trip to the gynecologist’s office. This can be nerve-racking, especially if you have no idea what to expect. Dr. Duncan Turner and his staff understand the anxiety that can accompany feminine health problems; whether you’re making decisions about an aesthetic procedure or addressing a life-threatening condition, we’ll be supporting you the whole way. 

We welcome your questions and want to discuss your concerns. Honest, open communication helps you understand the procedures and allows us to provide you with the excellent care you deserve. Give us a call or schedule an appointment online at any time!
