Does not follow up with patient, leaves you hanging and it took more than two weeks to have a phone call returned. Will never go back! The attitude of doctors these days is if they don't know what i s wrong...then you need anti-depressents because it must be in your head. Totally worthless!

I have been going to this doctor for three years and just love the care that he has given. There has been a problem in the practice and he is no longer there and I am trying to find where he is. I would have him treat me and my husband in a minute.

An excellent physician

Dr. De la Torre has been my physician for the past two years and has always been outstanding. He is always very professional, thorough, and never seems hurried. I always refer people new to the area when in need of medical attention. While no one enjoys being ill, paying a visit to his office is always pleasant.
