Welcome Dr. Anitra Turner, MD!
Dr. Anitra Turner is the second ophthalmologist to join the practice and brings her expertise as both a cataract surgeon and glaucoma specialist.
She grew up near Houston, Texas and completed her undergraduate studies at Princeton followed by obtaining her medical degree from Duke. She then went on to complete her ophthalmology residency at UCLA Jules Stein Eye Institute followed by her glaucoma fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis.
Dr. Turner currently practices at the Harry S. Truman VA in Columbia, Missouri, where she will continue to see patients alongside her time here in private practice. She has been published in multiple medical journals as well as co-authoring chapters of ophthalmology textbooks.
Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her husband and two young sons, traveling, and trying new things in the kitchen. A little known fact about Dr. Turner is that she loves James Bond!
We are thrilled to introduce Dr. Turner as part of the practice and cannot wait for you to meet her!
