  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

One Star

I saw him once had 10 questions he had a bad reaction and looked at the watch and...'your time is up'. I had Bell's Palsy episode during my annual examination and the PA 'did not notice'-she was trying to put the lap top to work!!!Another PA 'got offended' because I mispronounce her name...what a professional, during my FINAL annual examination she failed to check my eyes I have HBP and I never had so much pain during the examination, I believe she got upset after we discuss my medication-I refused to take 'her medication' because made me sick, gave me a headache, I was drowsy, she got upset when I said 'NO". I have apnea, sleep disorder and instead of pointing me a sleep disorder doctor she point me a neurologist...when I asked her name of a person that was cured she said she did not know...when I asked her if she read my records before she suggested the neuro, she said she did not read!!!!even the family that referred me this doctor gave up going there....they want you to stay quiet, and say 'AMEN' for their lack of awareness!!!

An outstanding diagnostician, a caring physician

Dr. Torrey is a good doctor and a good man. I recommend his services highly. He runs an up-to-date, professional office, and cares about the people that he sees. His examinations are thorough and his follow-up is informative. When there is a problem he sees it though.
