Rob Turk, MD

Career interest: I love all of ortho so I'm keeping a very open mind....but sports and spine are at the top of my list right now.
Best thing about Charlotte: I have yet to have bad food at any place in Charlotte (including the hospital cafeteria)- so the consistently great food and diverse selection is a big win for the city in my mind. Also, I love the city skyline and how there are amazing views of it from multiple different neighborhoods around the hospital.
Interests outside of the hospital: Basketball, reading, working on my golf swing, and finding the best wheat beers and Tripel selection in the city.
