Dr. Torbert cared for me for five months after a traumatic car accident. He is extremely knowledgeable and listened to me when there were issues with the injuries. I appreciate his willingness to spend quite a bit of time with me during appointments and answer all of my questions. While it took a long time to fully recover, I am happy to say that the many fractures I endured have healed and I am completely healed and walk as if nothing happened!

I broke my leg and had surgery while vacationing in SC and needed a doctor to care for me in Richmond. What a delight it was to meet Dr Torbert. He discussed my fractures with me, explained the treatment approach and answered all my questions. I hope I never break another bone but Dr Torbert is who I'll call if I do.

Dr. Torbert is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He repaired my son's hip after a bad car accident. Dr. Torbert and his staff are professional and friendly and truly show genuine concern for his recovery.

I fell from a ladder on March 13, 2019, and ultimately ended up at Henrico Doctor's Hospital-Forest where I was operated on by Dr. Tolbert on March 14. Dr. Tolbert is my hero! His skills, professionalism and empathy turned my Humpty Dumpty-esque fall from a negative into a positive; unlike the king's horses and men, Dr. Tolbert WAS able to put me back together again. After only 3 short weeks am walking unassisted again. And I've had NO pain.A great doctor and a wonderful human being.

In August of 2018, my wife fell while rollerskating resulting in a very bad break of her tibia, fibula and ankle. While in the ER, Dr. Torbert performed emergency surgery to stabilize everything and eventually a second surgery 10 days later. Based on how bad her break was, I never expected her to be able to walk normally again, but now she is. Dr. Torbert did an amazing job not only fixing a horrible break, he was great at communicating with us every step of the way! I highly recommend him!

I switched practices to have Dr. Torbert do my knee replacement because I liked his experience and educational background. Since then I have not had a regret. He has made time to see me on two occasions when I had a slip and fall. He has a great combination of bedside manner, skill and experience. I may have to do my other knee and won’t hesitate to have him do the procedure. I highly recommend him and his staff!

My husband fell off a ladder and crushed his right shoulder. He was taken to Chippenham where he was treated by Dr. Torbert. After surgery to repair, including screws, plates, etc., and after physical therapy my husband is fortunate to have full use of his shoulder. Dr. Torbert was a Godsend.

We met Dr. Torbert in April when my husband was nearly killed in a car accident. He sustained multiple fractures and needed a several surgeries to piece him back together. Dr. Torbert performed 4 surgeries on him for many hours. Dr. Torbert went to great lengths to ensure that he had a good outcome and has followed him closely over the past 8 months. He is very professional, pleasant, knowledgeable and we highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Torbert for everything! You ROCK!!

I had a car accident 3 weeks before my surgery and the initial doctors were TERRIBLE. I was eventually referred to Dr. Torbert and he and all of his staff were helpful and I really feel he was the right man for the job. He immediately took me into surgery after one look at my CT scan and was professional and personal at the same time.

I highly recommendation Dr. Torbert . Not only did he fix my broken leg -- he restored my confidence in the medical community. He actually cares about his patients after surgery and even called me a few days later at home to personally check on me . Thanks to him I' m getting back on my horse!

I had only seen Dr Torbert once because my ortho doctor had retired. I was very impressed. Went to make another appt and found he had left. When I called his new office I was told he only sees patients with injuries. I was very disappointed. I guess my hunt in on again for another doctor

One of the best orthopedic surgeons in Central VA. He answers any questions you may have and doesn't treat you like a number.

Dr. Torbert fixed my broken kneecap and did so in a most miraculous way! I barely had a pain. Was off pain meds in 5 days only taking Tylenol. Yes there was soreness; yes rehab was hard but after three months of doing exactly what he told me to I today walked a mile at the park! This man knows his stuff! My scar is barely noticeable. I would recommend Dr. Torbert to anyone needing joint surgery. He's my only Dr. if I should ever need another joint surgery.

Sent message before appointment on patient portal never answered. Xrays were taken which were never shown (had to track down his assistant who gave me a black and white print-out with no explanation). He tried to prescribe an antibiotic for what he thought was an allergic reaction (turned out to be contact dermatitis), which was weird. Scheduled me for an MRI. I checked to see if another message had been answered today, and noticed my chart said I was overweight (weight not taken during exam!).

I have extreme faith in Dr Torbert however, his staff caused me to decide to transfer my care back to my original attending surgeon in Roanoke even though it is a 6 hour round trip. It is virtually impossible to speak with a staff member that can actually help you with your needs.
