Dr, Tortora is a great doctor he takes all the time needed with his patients and he cares about them. I seen him about 2-3 times then i was going to see him in Jan. 2017 and i could not do it because i did not have the $166.00 and change so i had to stop going to see him.

I have seen Dr Tortora for over 20 I have never questioned his dedicatiion to his patients and their health issues. When any of my doctors are behind on their appointment schedule, I know it is because other patients required more time and attention than their appointment allowed. Sometimes I get less time than others, because the schedule is behind. But, I know if my issue requires more time to resolve, Dr Tortora's priority is the patient, not the appointment schedule.

I saw Dr. Tortora for probably a 6th month period. He was nice but most times I had to wait up to 2 hours to see him and he spent about 5 minutes with me. He was ALWAYS behind schedule. I was not pleased with my care and felt like he gave me the run around and gave me every sample of medicine to try. Some of the nurses I dealt with at the Cary office were also very rude. I found another doctor and wished I had switched a lot sooner!

I want to emphasize that Dr Frank Totora is an excellent urologist and a good person. However, when his practice joined A.U.of N.C.the relationship deteriorated rapidly. I experienced far too many appt rescheduling calls from his office for appts that had been booked for months. Prior to the rescheduled appt I would receive automated calls wanting me to confirm the appt. Inevitably, upon arriving there would be one hour+ waits. Today I start my search for a Dr not associated with A.U. of N.C.

I saw Dr. Tortora for an issue of a large kidney stone blocking my kidney and he did a urteroscopy on me. He never removed the stone, made an excuse as to why he couldn't get to it, and then barely told my family anything about my surgery. When I went back for a follow-up he couldn't remember my case, and then had miscommunicated what he wanted done to his staff. He then wanted to operate on me by cutting into my kidney to fix it. I went to another doctor after that and got much better care!!!

The Cary office is good at seeing patients by appt. The Clayton office is sorry. What ever time your appt is you might see a doctor 2 hours later. They take patients by check in time, not by appt time. We had appt at 9:15. Two hours later have not seen doctor. Bad office management. They should see patients by apt time not by check in. People come in a 8:00 for a 9:00 appt. they get to go in first before the other people whom come in at regular appt time. Sorry office mgt

Dr. Tortora is very knowledgeable & helped me finally clear up my urinary infection. At the time I saw him, I was on my fourth antibiotic. He ran tests on me and ruled out the possibility of a stone. Also, he prescribed medicine that has helped me and instructed me on why he thought I was getting them.

I don't really need to see a specialist every year, but Dr. Tortora has taken such good care of me that it seems like a good investment in my health. Always fun and informative, and clearly has my best interests at heart. Highest recommendation.
