Learn about Dr. Torre

Care Philosophy

I approach each patient from the perspective of family and friends: how I would treat my own family and friends, and how I would want to be treated in this situation. I believe educating patients about their condition is the cornerstone of effective treatment. I use pictures, charts, diagrams and other visual aids to help patients form a clear understanding of their problem and how we go about helping it.

From the reception staff to Dr Torre every one is so friendly and prompt. I have total confidence in this practice.
in Roanoke, VA |
Dr. Torre is the 2nd hand surgeon I've been to in the Roanoke/Salem, VA area. I was not at all impressed with my 1st surgeon (carpel tunnel release on my left hand) and chose Dr. Torre to do my right hand. He is a very caring doctor. He will patiently explain the procedure, what to expect and how long it will take to heal. He is an excellent surgeon. I may need to have a 2nd surgery on my right hand and trust him to take care of it well.

If there is such a thing as an enjoyable experience at a doctors office, this is it. The staff, nurses and doctors in this office are friendly and talk to their patients in a direct and informative way. They put you at ease with their personable manner. I highly recommend Dr. Torre and this orthopedic department.
