    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.

I would never recommend this Caribbean educated doctor to anyone. He has yelled at me as well as my elder parent. If you wish to pay his "concierge" fee you'll get better treatment. My elder parent who has more money than he could ever dream of won't pay his concierge fee. So they wait for an hour and 45 minutes to see him. quite the hack. He has a degree from Ross University in Dominica. Apparently he couldn't get into American schools.

The office is dingy. The staff is surly. There are much better practitioners in the area.

Dr. Tortura offers a concierge service for those who wish a higher level of engagement with him, but I've found it completely unnecessary. I see him once a year. Our appointments take about 45 minutes, during which he grills me about my exercise and eating habits, sources of stress and relaxation, family situation, etc. Over the past 12 years I've needed to undergo three surgeries, and Dr. Tortura has always recommended like-minded surgeons, and he has always followed up before and immediately after those surgeries to make sure I'm doing well.

Great guy & doctor

Dr Tortora is my primary physician. He is easy to talk to, and helped me find the right specialists to detect cardiac sarcoidosis, leading to a heart transplant.
