    in Olympia, WA |
    Dr. Torgerson led me through a difficult Prostate Cancer experience that required radiation and surgery. The outcome was excellent and I am cured thanks to his experience and good judgement. I greatly appreciated his thorough analysis of my condition and timely resolution which saved my life. His administrative/clerical office support was slow at times, such as getting messages to him.

    Dr. Torgerson spent time during the office visit discussing the various BPH procedures. Both my wife and I were impressed by his thoroughness and the time that he spent explaining the procedures. Last week he performed a biopolar TURP procedure on me at Swedish Hospital in Seattle. Today, he personally called me with results of pathology and to inquire about how I was recovering. I would highly recommend Dr. Torgerson.
