Meet our Provider of the Month, Michael Turjanica, DC! This month we caught up with him to learn more about his practice. Call us at (800) 404-6050 to schedule your appointment today.

Where is your practice? 

Deerfield Township, Ohio.

Where are you originally from? 

Youngstown, Ohio.

How long have you been with Airrosti? 

Almost 9 years.

Describe your favorite thing about your job. 

There are two things I love most about my job –

  1. To earn the trust from my patients to be the resource they think of when they need help becoming a healthier version of themselves.
  2. I love having the opportunity to spend quality time with each patient. In healthcare today it seems like appointment times continue to shrink, but at Airrosti we are focused on providing quality care and not sacrificing time to do that.

What did you want to be when you grew up? 

I wanted to be a barber.

Name three things you love to do in your spare time. 

I love golfing, traveling, and spending time with family.

Best food recommendations near your practice’s location?

My practice is in Deerfield Township – which I always say it’s the land of chain restaurants. I am more of a fan of good ol’ locally owned establishments, so I do not eat out much near my practice. With that said though, there is a taco joint called Condado that serves some quality tacos!  

If you could be in any movie, what would it be and why?

I would be in The Sandlot. I think I have what it takes to pickle The Beast.

What’s your favorite sport?

I am a sports junkie for sure!  It is very difficult to pick one.

  1. I love playing golf
  2. I would say my favorite sport to watch on TV is football.
  3. My favorite sport to see live is baseball. There’s nothing better than hanging out in a ballpark in the summer, watching baseball, drinking a cold beer, and spending time with friends or family.

If you could make a difference in the world, what would you be known for?

My biggest pet peeve is when people do not put their shopping cart back after grocery shopping.

If I could make one difference in this world, it would be to genetically program everyone to inherently put their shopping cart back in the proper place after grocery shopping.

If you could have any superpower, which would you choose and why?

I wish I had the ability to fly – I have a reoccurring dream that I am able to just take off and fly. This dream is such an amazing experience, I just wish one day this dream will become a reality.

Do you volunteer with any local community organizations or efforts? If so, which ones and why?

My volunteer work stems from coaching kids in sports. I have coached soccer for a few years and baseball as well. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with kids, teaching them a sport, and helping to build their confidence along the way.

Finally, name one thing you couldn’t live without.

Family is the absolute correct answer! My wife, 2 kids, and parents mean the world to me and I love them all so very much! If the question was, “name one thing, besides family, that you couldn’t live without?” I would say it would be Mio Energy drinks. There are many days during the week when I just hit a wall around 2:00 pm. Most people just resort to coffee to get them to plow through the day, but I do not like the taste of coffee, so I have found Mio Energy to be a great source of caffeine that provides the necessary fuel to get through my day.
