What People Say About Dr. Jose De La Torre, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have never walked out of an office before. It takes a LOT for me to complain and the fact that I’m posting it means it truly was something horrible. Your visits will be over 2 hours and he forgot to call me last time. He did not examine me my last visit and I have a possible broken tailbone. He ordered an extra MRI and when I expressed my concern, his reply was that it didn’t hurt my body. He forgot to order an MRI of my neck so now I have to go back and pay more! Again, no apologies.

I have been seeing Dr. De La Torre since February 2018 after being referred to him by a medical professional due to car accident and previous pain. He has suggested several procedures that other doctors did not to assist with my pain. He takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns. His staff is always available to answer my questions and is very pleasant. I would recommend Dr. Del La Torre to others who are looking for pain doctor.

I've been going to Dr De La Torre since July of this year. I left a different pain management because I thought he became uncaring. Dr. De La Torre cares and empathizes with your condition. He takes all of the time that is necessary. I'd recommend to anyone! His staff is extremely caring, efficient and helpful. He has a extremely busy practice since the change in the opioid laws in FL, but his office has adapted and become more efficient with that matter. I'm most grateful to him.

Dr de la torre is quite possibly the best doctor ive had the pleasure of seeing. He is incredibly kind, patient, and understanding. He treats patients with respect and personal care. He accomadates my schedule, whenever feasible. He engages with my son, who has an autism diagnosis, and never fails to inquire about his welfare, whenever i dont bring him to my appointments.

I had suffered for many years with severe back pain. I had been treated by many specialists around the country including another in the Wesley Chapel area, none of whom were able to provide me with relief. A retired physician recommended Dr De La Torre to me and shared that he himself was a satisfied former patient. I thought to myself, that’s it! Go to the doctor that other doctors go to. Within two days my pain had relaxed, within a week the pain disappeared. He is an amazing doctor!

Three years ago, when I moved to the area I was referred to Dr. de La Torre and I am so happy that I was! He is kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. He customizes my treatment as my condition evolves and also has given my shots in my shoulder so I can get back to my active lifestyle. His staff is always so nice and always accommodating, they are a breath of fresh air!

I just can’t tell you how much appreciation both my wife and I have for this office. Not only is the staff amazingly helpful and compassionate, Dr De La Torre treats us with such respect and takes the time to ensure he listens and addresses every problem or issue we may have. I don’t have any other doctor that has every took his or her time to get to know me , normally they just rush in give you a 30 sec diagnosis and walk out. If you need a professional, caring dr this is the one!!

I've gone to Dr. De La Torre around 9 years. He is not in my insurance network but I like him so much I pay the $70 our of network cost and drive an hour each way to his office! He has prescribed physical therapy, shots, burning nerves and medication. I have done each recommendation and each has helped. That's what most important! He has a great personality and gives the patient all the time and attention they want or need. I recommend him enthusiastically! His staff is exceptional!

This "Doctor" will make you come in just so he can charge you or your insurance just to refill your medicine. He isn't checking up on you he's running a racket in order to force you to come in just so he can bill you because he knows you must have to have a refill without getting sick. This man has no business being a doctor I agree with the certified drug dealer comment. "READ THE SIGN WHEN YOU WALK IN, PAYMENT FIRST" He doesn't care about your wellbeing, he only cares about your money.

I began seeing the Dr several months ago and he made it a point to listen to what I felt and any ideas I had. Him and the staff are very friendly and they make you feel relaxed but they even recognize you and remember little things about your life that make you feel like they actually care. I'm not one to write reviews but he deserves it. I would recommend Dr De La Torre any time

Does not know what he is doing in regards to treating anyone with anytype of drug issue. Failed to safely taper me off medicine. He will cut you off as well if you can't provide payment up front. Meaning he doesn't care about your wellbeing he'll get you hooked on something until you can't pay and then leaves you high and dry. He's nothing but a certified drug dealer. Any real doctor would safely taper you off a medicine in an appropriate manner no matter what the conditions are. Stay away!

I've known Dr de la Torre for over 10 years professionally in the medical field and also personally as a patient & my husband as a patient. His compassion to help & also educate on the issue at hand is why I find him to be a great physician. His staff is also a great asset to his practice. They have bent over backwards to help get things done with certain insurance matters. It's always nice to know everyone at the office is there to help in every way.

I've been a patient of Dr. Jose De La Torre for over 2 years now and couldn't be happier. The Dr has always been very helpful and I've never felt rushed like with other Dr's. I will also never forget hiw he helped me out when I was having problems with my insurance. The staff (Karen, Jordan, and others) are truly incredible and and always willing to help in any way possible. Whether it be my crazy schedule and changing my appointments or dealing with my less than stellar medical insurance.
