I had the distinct honor of paying a few co-pays and had the opportunity to get as far as his PA who has no tact or empathy for the patient. In the end I was terminated and left with nothing to fall back on. Now I am looking for a Psychiatrist that can help me but it's a long wait. The PA terminated me, took my medication away and left me in a very difficult position. It is very dangerous and possibly life threatening to go cold turkey off these med but apparently "life threatening " isn't a concern to the PA. As for seeing the real Dr., I was not given the opportunity. There's more to say but I'll refrain...they tell me that Dr. Torres is an easy going, I'll never know...at least they got my money...

I was referred by my primary doctor to these people in November. Every single interaction with the from desk people was infuriating. They never answer the phones. Then they don’t even tell you when your next appointment is, and then they tell you that you missed it when it passes. They were rude to my husband when he went to pick up a work excuse for me. They meander around the office, make annoyed faces at you, they’re rude, and unkind. I worked in the medical field for 8 years, and it is APPALLING the lack of empathy these front desk people have. I can’t wrap my head around this terrible series of experiences. Today was the last straw. Without giving too much detail, they refused to give me a refill on an SSRI medication that my PA changed 11 days ago without sufficient refills because I apparently missed an appointment on the 12th (then they changed their mind and said it was the 8th). They were willing to leave me without medicine for 1 1/2 weeks. I’m done with them.

Horrible, incompetent, irresponsible fake psychiatrist and supervisor of his equally stupid and ill trained underlings ,so called nurse practitioners namely mr Marez. This shrink and marez need to see a psychiatrist. Torres is not trained in US so what do u expect. Their a joke, wouldn’t take my pet dog to them. Stay away from these impersonators, their goal is to make ur condition worse.

He was spot on of his assessment of my boyfriend's condition. He and his assistant listened to everything we had to say and immediately ordered blood work before he prescribed my boyfriend a medication to help alleviate anger issues due to a traumatic brain injury. He is very caring and professional. I highly recommend him!

A family trauma took me to my family doctor who put me on anti anxiety and anti depression meds. She wanted me to see a psychiatrist after several months to be certain I was on the right combo. She recommended another dr in town but when I shared with my LPC she suggested Torres. In her opinion he was more likely to try to get me off meds as possible rather than keeping me on them indefinitely (which seems to be fairly common). I have been under his care less than three months and I am pleased.

Dr. Torres is what's wrong with Psychiatry. He has a money making system without desire to properly treat patients. This physician spent less than 4 minutes with my son. Treating recently diagnose patient w/ Bipolar/mania for 6 mths might require more than 4 minutes visits to treat the patient properly. My son said he did not want to take his meds(which most patients eventually say) and Dr. Torres said "ok, we will stop treating you. let us know if you change your mind"

Loved the quick service I'd receive in office. Especially enjoyed that all efforts would be made to make sure I was only seen by doc and not other practitioners at my request. Also liked that Dr Torres would make sure to follow up with me despite my thinking it was time for discharge because it showed that he cared for my well being and would always explain his rationale. Plus staff was always nice too.
