Specialties

Dr. Michael A Torres has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

The Best Psychiatrist

I have been a patient of Dr. Torress for a few years. He is a wonderful psychiatrist. I have seen many Psychiatrist throughout the years & I have never been more thankful that I have finally found a Great Psychiatrist. He is always very prompt with appointments and I have never had wait long. He has excellent bedside manner and I always feel that he spends time with me during my appointment, especially if I am having any problems. If I am having issues, he always has me come in for follow up visits, beside my regular monthly visit. He truly does care about his patients!

Horrific. Run for the hills!

Dr. Torres is the most negligent and incompetent physician I have ever encountered. He does not care about the well-being of his patients. I recommend you see someone-anyone!-else.
