Dr. Amarilis R Torres has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent rheumatologist. Extremely thorough. Very caring and understanding. She actually listens to you about what works for you and what doesn't as far as medications and treatments you have tried before. Absolutely wonderful doctor!
I agree will all of the opinions so far. I have been on workmans comp. with no help at all. My girlfriend goes to her & couldn't say enough about her. As usually I thought I would be the judge of that....Well! I am here to say, she is the best Dr I've seen & I am 64yrs old. She actually looked at all the MRI's I've taken over 2 yrs. She went over then with me. She took her time. Explained everything. Told me things no Dr ever told me. I was with her 2 hrs. she knew I was a self payer told me where to go to get my medicine. She was so caring. If I was a man I would fall in love with her. I can't say enough good things about this women. She even told me that smaller Blood test companys charge less. (she was right about that/ Physcian Stat was $486 & Quest was $781)I thanked my girlfriend she was so-o-oright. My husband is going to the next appt. he wouldn't believe it either 2 run into 2 Dr's He has a family prat. Dr.Dr. Ravi who is also the same as Dr Torres. Dr Ravi even came to the house when our son Died to make sure my husband was okay & have him a shot to calm his nevres. s He has a regular family
She is a very care doctor. I love her. She make me believe that everything are going to be okay. Dr. Torres is a very self explanatory. With all her advises, I fill like if I keep doing what she ask me to do my life is going to be more easy. That why I keep her in my prayers everynight also her wonderfull family. Because they give the time to her for her have to give to other. God Bless her always. Thank you Dr. Torres to be my doctor and also thank you to let me be your patient.
Though you may have to wait abit longer for appointments I will not go to any other doctor. Dr.Torres is very caring and explaines all issues in great detail. She listens to my problems and will spend whatever time is needed to help me. I travel 1 hour to see her and it is worth every mile to have such a professional caring doctor.
