What People Say About Dr. Daniel Torzala, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After waiting for Neurology Consult to get answers I was very disspointed with this docdtor. My initial consultation lasted maybe 15 minutes. The doctor seemed in a rush to get through with my appointment. He has terribel bedside manner, dismissive, un-empatethic and not a good listener. The doctor had his scrubs on and seemed like he was rushing to get out to do surgery or something more important than patient care. He rushed out of the room and I felt like I was left hanging. My husband accompanied me to the appointment and even he was in shock at the doctors approach. I justified his approach as many of us probably do, blaming the rush on patient load, however, all the appts seemed the same. I had a total of 3. Sometimes, an empathetic approach by the doctor can make all the difference. I decided to take my care and my money somewhere else.

Terrible bed side manner. Does not listen or show any sort of empathetic response. Always seems rushed and bothered by questions.

Dr. torzala was extremely kind and took the time to calm me down as I suffer from panic attacks and was being seen for a follow up to a brain mri. For possible MS. His kindness , knowledge compassion and how he took the time to explain everything to me. Went in appt at. 10 with anxiety left at a 1. More test to come, but feel like I’m in the best hands with Dr torzala! Thank you! I would highly recommend him to anyone. Also follow up Wasn’t scheduled until end of nov and they fit me in same day.

I've been seeing Dr. Torzala for several months. He took my concerns and pain very seriously and rather than brushing me off and prescribing pain medicine, he tested to see what was really going on. Thanks to Dr. Torzala, I have regained full strength and function in both hands I had an MRI one morning and got the results the next day. I've never had to wait very long to be seen. The staff is young, pleasant and friendly. This doctor saved the use of my hands and for that I am extremely grateful

I have never had more than 3-5 minutes with him. He avoids any and all my questions. Had an MRI for chronic sever migraines he hasn't given me results after 2 months and have asked about it. Doesn't seem to care about his patients at all. He should read his own reviews and take them into consideration. If you only have a 2 star rating you need to fix something about yourself. Found a new doctor

He was very short with me and did not seem to care about me at all. The medications he suggested to me were expensive and not at all good choices for me and had terrible side effects. He failed to mention that the medication he had me on for a long period of time caused birth defects.

He was over 45 minutes late to my scheduled appt. He then had the nerve to have an attitude with me even though he was very late. He spent all of 5 minutes asking and answering questions about what he diagnosed as very serious condition. This diagnosis comes after I've seen 4 other doctors and spent considerably more time talking with them about my experiences. I have no confidence in what he had to say and now need to find another provider who can give me the attention a patient deserves.

I saw Dr. Anderson previously, but yesterday I saw Dr. Torzala. He basically dismissed every question I had. I was supposed to be reviewing 3 different tests I had, but he really only said something about one. I was there about really bad migraines, since I was down to 2 a week, be felt that was progress. I was having issues with the medications and he just brushed that off. I questioned if I had seen a Dr. at all and looked his picture up online. I go back in a month to see Dr. Anderson.

Poor communication from both Dr. and staff, neither return phone calls. Scheduled appt. to review abnormal test results then neither Dr. nor staff could locate test summary. A week later and no one will call me back. But they've already billed Medicare for the appt where nothing took place.

This doctor and this practice is very unsatisfactory. After years of 5 minute appointments , I was all of a sudden told "I think you have Parkinson's". What? I was given a prescription that sent me to the ER after taking. At the first sign of trouble, I called the office for help. They didn't call me back for 3 weeks! I told them I was never coming back, that I had a new doctor, wherein they retaliated sending me a certified letter saying "I have been terminated as a patient." Don't go to D

I have been a patient of Dr. Torzala since 2010. I started seeing him due to seizures after a TBI. I found him to be proactive and like to find out what is causing the problem.

Dr. didnt talk to me, ask me questions or give me any answers or helpful advise. I feel like he just ordered a bunch of tests and didnt even explain what they meant. He never gave me a proper exam. If he would have just checked ALL my reflexes, he would have realized I have NO reflex response in my right elbow. And I have been having symptoms similar to MS for months and he did not even care to try to help me or give me any advise on how to improve my health or diagnosis to what is going on.

His bedside manner was not rude, but far from friendly. He was very cold and impatient when it came to me describing my epileptic seizures. I admit it could've been frustrating to understand my explanation because I was the one having then and could not accurately describe them. I could only base myself off of what persons around me would see. My seizures were not kept under control with the meds and he reprimanded me as to why u didn't call him sooner, even though I had.
