Dr. Joe Turner celebrates 30 years as a Primary Care Physician
Dr. Joe Turner, Primary Care Physician (PCP) at Wind River Clinic is celebrating 30 years as a practicing physician. For the last 4 years he has had the pleasure of being a trusted Primary Care Provider to residents of Fremont County.
Even as a child, Dr. Turner was drawn to the sciences. Watching his father work as a small town physician, he was inspired by how personable his father was and how he seemed to know everyone. “It looked like a great job,” he reminisced. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in Dr. Turner’s case.
Today, he is firmly planted in the Fremont County community, which welcomed him with open arms back in 2014. He and his wife of 37 years, Dr. Candy Turner were drawn to the Wyoming mountains and scenery. This area allows them to enjoy their hobbies: bird, scenic, and astronomy photography, music, and recreating in the outdoors.
It is a great accomplishment to have spent decades in a career which you love.
When asked what Dr. Turner loved most about being a PCP, he replied, “As a primary care physician, I get to put all the pieces together; physical and psychological. I am often able to see the bigger picture, while specialties focus on one area.”
“I enjoy the challenge of different cases. When I figure things out for the patient and am able to help them, they are always so grateful!”
As a small town Primary Care Physician, Dr. Turner is well acquainted with his patients. For annual exams, screenings, the occasional illness or chronic disease management, Dr. Turner is just a call away!
