About Scott G. Turner

Scott Turner, MD, is a board-certified Neurologist specializing in Neuro-Oncology at the Brain Tumor Center at the Pacific Neuroscience Institute®. An experienced clinician, Dr. Turner’s practice in Orange County, CA, is focused on benign and malignant primary brain and spine tumors as well as metastatic tumors, peripheral nerve tumors, pituitary and acoustic tumors, and the neurologic complications that stem from oncologic disease. Dr. Turner strives to provide effective treatments that also maximize quality of life along with compassionate and individualized care of his patients and their loved ones. He has been a principal investigator and sub-investigator on numerous clinical trials and he is an ardent proponent of research and leading-edge treatments based on individualized genetic data from each patient’s tumor. Dr. Turner completed his Neurology training at SUNY Stony Brook followed by a Neuro-Oncology fellowship at Duke University. He was the director of the Neuro-Oncology programs at the Geisinger Medical Center in Pennsylvania and at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, and he previously had an academic appointment at University of California, Irvine. He is an active member of the Society for Neuro-Oncology and the American Academy of Neurology.
