I had a great experience at Dr. Torrez's office when I sought help for knee pain. He was kind, good to explain the problem, what needed to be done and what he could do to help me. Surgery went well! I would highly recommend him.
My entire experience with Dr. Torrez and all of the staff members was great! I will continue to recommend Dr. Torrez's services to my family and friends.

Three shots to the knee week apart with minimum pain. Relief did not last long so just limping along. Guess I can live with a bum knee.
Waterloo, IA |
Very pleasant with great sense of humor. He will spend the time and to answer any and all questions. Office Staff is helpful and pleasant also.

En route Arizona during first 12 days following surgery in Waterloo, I noticed that 1 of 2 pins rotated between bandage changes. Since I had no problems or pain, I would not have returned to Dr. Torrez prior to his suggested "2 week checkup" whether I was in Waterloo, Arizona or on the moon! Weeks later 3 Phoenix hand surgeons consulted and said my distal fingertip bone was highly likely infected by that loose pin during the first few days after surgery, not by subsequent infections:

My mom had hip surgery and the femur broke during surgery. No follow up by Dr. Torres at all! She is 6 weeks non-weight baring and the only contact from this office was with a PA.
Awesome guy and doctor, always there to answer questions with a great since of humor.
Dyersville, IA |
Dr. Torrez was great at explaining the procedure our daughter was going to have done. He also answered all of our questions and concerns.
Sumner, IA |
My brother had femur surgery with Dr Torrez in March. He did a great jib of explaining exactly what he was going to do and what to expect afterwards. He was never in a hurry when we had questions.
