More Information

Dr. Scott G. Turner is a board-certified UCI Health neuro-oncologist with more than a decade of experience diagnosing and treating patients with tumors of the brain and spine.

He received his medical degree at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, followed by a neurology residency at Stony Brook University's Renaissance School of Medicine in Stony Brook, N.Y. He subsequently completed a neuro-oncology fellowship at Duke University in Durham, N.C.

Before coming to UCI Health and the UCI School of Medicine, Turner practiced neuro-oncology for more than 10 years, serving as director of neuro-oncology at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., and at Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. His focus has been on developing a multidisciplinary treatment paradigm that integrated clinical trials with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, intrathecal chemotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery. He creates comprehensive care plans that include physical and occupational therapy, nutritional planning, psychiatric and neuro-psychologic evaluation, as well as palliative care.

Turner's clinical interests include glial proliferation, migration and invasion, and associated clinical therapeutics for primary brain and spine tumors. He is an active researcher, and has participated as principal investigator and co-investigator on many clinical trials. His research has published many peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.

He sees patients in Orange, Tustin and Yorba Linda.
