Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Torre "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."

Dr. Torre is an excellent care-giver. He's very professional, caring, well-educated, keeps current on the latest in his field, and really LISTENS to your needs and concerns. He's easy to talk with. I'd recommend him to any of my friends.

Dr. Torre, was exceptionally rude. He was offended by questions. He was very disappointing, as he told us he did not even take the time to review the MRI films that we had brought (and he had returned to us)... he stated he might look at them later?

I truly apologize for your experience. A day of emergencies/stressors from which you should have been isolated:I fully understand. You were hoping for a solution, and I was hesitant to operate. (I had seen the x ray report and selected images, and later saw the rest on the website) I failed to adequately address your concerns, ease anxiety and provide reassurance: necessary to treat the patient, not just the "problem". We cannot lose sight of our obligations to, and the needs of our patients.
