The best podiatrist hands down. This man truly cares about his patients and making them feel better. Our whole family misses seeing him in Rapids and NOBODY compares to him. Considering making the 2+ hr drive just to see him again. Not having him as our doctor is a real pain....literally!

Does anyone know what has happen to Dr. Torhorst. Went to see him a couple of months ago, and the receptionist told myself and my wife that he had taken an unexpected leave of absents. My wife will not see anyone but Dr. Torhorst. Any info would be greatly appreciated. he is an excellent Dr. with great bed side manner. Me and my wife really miss him.

What an amazing surgeon who goes out of his way for his patients. I don't think he ever takes a day off. After surgery he called me on his way to dinner with his family just to make sure I was doing ok. This man goes above and beyond for his patients and treats us as he would want him or his family to be treated. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. Thank you Dr Torhorst for everything you do for everyone and for taking the time to actually know your patients. May God bless you and your family!

I have been a patient of Dr Torhorst's for a couple of years and highly recommend him to anyone and everyone who is in need of a podiatrist. His knowledge and surgical skills are exemplary but what truly sets him apart is his compassion and caring for his patients. I don't know how he does it given the large number of people he treats but he truly makes every patient feel like they are his top priority. It would be a HUGE loss if he left Aspirus Riverview and our community.

Best doctor I've ever had! He actually cares about his patience and takes time out of his own day, even weekends, to talk to his patient's. His entire staff is great and they make you feel comfortable; they don't make you feel dumb when you don't understand the first time LOL. I'm thankful for them & for my new ankle!

Dr Torhorst is the most wonderful Dr.I have ever seen & I am 58.He is very smart, but what really sets him apart is his personality.He isn't arrogant like some others who specialize, he treats his staff great & doesn't act like he's above them & they're his servants.You can feel a great atmosphere & can tell they all like working for him.One of his nurses told me the same thing but also said he's smarter then just what he specializes in. I had surgery yesterday & have not needed one pain pill.
