    The Cary office is good at seeing patients by appt. The Clayton office is sorry. What ever time your appt is you might see a doctor 2 hours later. They take patients by check in time, not by appt time. We had appt at 9:15. Two hours later have not seen doctor. Bad office management. They should see patients by apt time not by check in. People come in a 8:00 for a 9:00 appt. they get to go in first before the other people whom come in at regular appt time. Sorry office mgt

    Dr. Tortora is very knowledgeable & helped me finally clear up my urinary infection. At the time I saw him, I was on my fourth antibiotic. He ran tests on me and ruled out the possibility of a stone. Also, he prescribed medicine that has helped me and instructed me on why he thought I was getting them.

    I don't really need to see a specialist every year, but Dr. Tortora has taken such good care of me that it seems like a good investment in my health. Always fun and informative, and clearly has my best interests at heart. Highest recommendation.
