Again, I checked what people were searching for and found somebody searching for "dr turow great neck". I'm not sure this is the Dr. Turow they were looking for, but here's what I have on Dr. David Turow.
Turow performed the fatal abortion on Kathleen Gilbert, and provided inadequate aftercare that allowed Dorothy Muzorewa to bleed to death.
A suit by Leslie R. alleged that she underwent an abortion by Turow at Woman's Aid on October 29, 1987.

Leslie suffered pain, cramping, inability to walk, and hemorrhage. She was admitted to the hospital for surgery to complete the abortion. (Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 88L19367)
Kimbra K. sued, alleging that Turow performed an incomplete abortion on her January 21, 1984. She said he failed to give her appropriate post-operative instructions, and failed to diagnose her post-operative symptoms and give her proper care. She suffered excessive bleeding, cramping, and a high fever. She called the clinic on January 24 to report her symptoms. Turow phoned in a prescription although Kimbra indicated that she felt too ill to go pick up the medications, "He didn't seem to believe that the bleeding was a serious as I had described," she said. Kimbra called again on January 25, and said the bleeding had slowed but persisted. Turow did not return her call. Kimbra was taken to an emergency clinic later that day due to hemorrhage. The doctor called Turow, and reported that Kimbra was in shock, with dangerously low blood pressure. Turow recommended more of the prescribed medication, and told them to send Kimbra home. The emergency clinic doctor instead sent Kimbra to a hospital by ambulance. She had to undergo a D&C. Turow called Kimbra at home after her discharge from the hospital, and requested that she report to him for follow-up. Kimbra said, "I told him that I didn't trust him and had found another doctor."
