I had surgery to remove a large cyst in my neck.On 11/18/16 and would like for everyone to know my personal opinion in regards to this doctor.Doctor Torset is a very soft spoken polite,kind man indeed...I switched from another doctor who was very rude to this doctor.He explained what it was that was growing in my neck as well as what type of procedure would be done step by step..The staff in his office are polite and kind as well as the treatment at Good Sam Hospital..This doctor was excellent!
in Great River, NY |
Extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. Excellent bed-side manner. Answered all of my questions (and I had a lot of them ;-P) with empathy and without making me feel rushed. I felt unbelievably calm and safe under his care.
