in Carrington, ND |
I saw Dr. Torrance for prenatal care, and he delivered my two sons. He provided excellent care, listened to and addressed concerns, and was always quick to respond to messages or phone calls.

Dr. Torrance was my pediatrician as a child, for 12 years he saw me through a lot. I'd take my kids to him any day and I'd recommend him for a parent who wants a thoughtful, experienced, and smart doctor.
in Fingal, ND |
Ive been seeing Dr. Torrance for over 5 years. For the past 5 months I've been seeing him once a week due to a rare chronic illness. He goes above and beyond any other doctor I have been to (and I have been to alot). He takes his time during each appointment and he actually listens to what you have to say and help fix the problem. If he is unsure about something he takes the time to do research on it, consult a nother doctor or refer you to a sepecalist. I would definitely recommend him!
