Dr. Torres is Great!

Dr. Torres fit my surgery into his busy schedule and did a fine job. I have only ever heard good things about him, and he is highly recommended. I didn't hardly have to wait at either of my appointments, and I have no complaints about his office staff.

Dr. Torres is a horrible doctor!!!! STAY AWAY!!!!

I only gave him one star because that was the only option. He does not deserve any stars. He is uncaring and not interested in solving my problem. He seemed like he was in a hurry and did not listen to what I had to say. He had an excuse for everything so I went to another doctor who treated me better.

Great surgeon, very professional, knows his stuff!

During a laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) Dr. Torres found a small anatomical anomaly that, if left untreated, would have landed me in the ER in 5-7 days after my surgery and would have required another surgery to repair. He indicated he sees this once in every 5 years, so it is not very common. This tells me he is a very thorough surgeon, and I was very happy to have his skills at my bedside. Thank you Dr. Torres!
