Review for Dr. Lionberger

I have been seeing Dr. Torres-Barre for four years now for problems in both Knees. She always spends as much time with me as I need. She is very knowledgeable about her field. I have now started having my husband go to her for knee issues after seeing 3 other Dr. that did not help him.

Review for Dr. Torres-Barre

Dr Patt is a fabulous doctor who is knowledgeable, professional and really cares about his patients. He has done surgery on several of my children and always exceeds expectations. We wouldn’t use anyone else for our ENT needs. He knows noses!
