Clint Harris – Jan 20, 2021
Worst healthcare provider office in the country I have ever visited. While the Dr. Jose de la Torre is a nice person, the office staff is not professional and very inefficient. After appointments were confirmed three times, once there, I had to leave the office without being treated because they had not taken the time to communicate with me and cancel my appointments. Awful staff!

Michele Francis Strausser – Jun 08, 2020
I'm not prone to writing reviews - but my experience at this office was so terrible that I felt the need to warn others. I have extreme back pain and Dr. de la Torre provided me with a referral to have an MRI done - my insurance company denied the procedure since Dr. de la Torrre did not provide sufficient information for the insurance company to determine that the procedure was "medically necessary" - it took Dr. de la Torre almost a month and numerous phone calls from myself to get the information to the insurance company so that we could get the procedure approved. Once I had the procidure approved and performed - I scheduled a follow-up visit with Dr. de la Torre to review those results so we could come up with an appropriate action plan for treatment of my issues... my appointment was for 1:15 - I arrived early as was escorted to a patient room at 1:05 - at 2:00pm after no one even acknowledging that I had been in the room for 55 minutes - I left and will NEVER visit this office

Grady Camper – Aug 16, 2019
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.

T. Smith in Land O' Lakes, FL – Dec 28, 2018
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.

V. Alessandroni in Wesley Chapel, FL – Sep 10, 2018
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!

Linda Gardner in Wesley Chapel, FL – May 26, 2017
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.
