Dr. Mark Turk, O.D.
Dr. Turk is an optometrist in Boaz providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities. He grew up in nearby Sardis City and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science from UAB in 1993. An externship at the Fort Washakie Indian Reservation Hospital in Wyoming allowed him to hone his special interest of diabetic eye disease management. After completing his Doctorate of Optometry in 1997 at UAB, he began practicing in Fort Payne, AL before opening Advanced Eyecare in 2001.
As a licensed optometrist, Dr. Turk provides exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. In addition to the training of eye diseases and disorders, Dr. Turk is also trained in anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology. With this background, Dr. Turk is trained to recognize a range of health issues, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, and hypertension.
Dr. Turk works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Turk’s dedication to continuing education that our Sand Mountain area patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.
