in Wesley Chapel, FL |
Extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. Great personality, makes you feel at ease.
in Tampa, FL |
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.
in Wesley Chapel |
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
in Tampa, FL |
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.

Dr DeLaTorre has been a trustworthy and outstanding doctor. When i first became a patient over 5years ago I was a referral my doctor at the time was going back to emergency care do to family needs, i was skeptical like all patients changing doctors, after all i had 11 broken bones, medical rods in my legs and RSD. Dr DelLaTorre and his staff are amazing the time he took with me understanding each issue and designing a plan specific to my needs. The girls in the office i just adore! Like Family!

My name is M. Kennedy, I have been a patient of Dr. De La Torre for quite a few years now, and I would highly recommend him to others. At each appointment, he and his staff always approach me in a kind and respectful manner. My concerns are listened to and treated with the utmost professionalism. And I have achieved relief from my pain through several types of care. I appreciate the effort dedicated to my health and healing, and place my trust in him and his office staff.

I've been a patient of his for over 4 yrs now. He is a very caring, kind, compassionate doctor, who knows what hes doing which is hard to find these days. He also has a sense of humor which is refreshing. The office staff is wonderful. They treat me like family every time I go in there. The office is always clean and inviting. I've had many procedures done there. 6 injections in my back, 3 in the knee and a temp spinal cord stimulator. All done with the upmost professionalism. I highly recommend
in Dunnellon, FL |
I have been a patient for over 3 years now. For the first two years if it wouldn't have been for the help from his office I wouldn't have been able to continue working. At this point I am unable to work but couldn't imagine going through the pain I would go through if it was not for his help. Everyone in the office is very friendly and treats you in a very respectful manner. Thanks to Dr De La Torre and his staff my quality of life is bearable.

I have been a patient of Dr. De La Torre for over 3 years due to chronic neck problems. He & his staff have been an absolute blessing in my life. He is not only my dr. but I also consider him a very good friend! Dr. D. truly cares about his patients & getting them as pain free as possible, & strives to make quality of life better. My last visit I heard a lady telling him how much better she was since coming to him, & he replied "I'm so glad, that's why I do what I do!"

I have been his patient for 5 years. He has been a great help to me living as pain free as possible. He has also. Has very good staff. Stopped me from getting surgery that was not needed. One Doctor said I needed surgery for a pinched nerve. Was not it was aurthoritics.
in Ruskin, FL |
I am a Registered Nurse with 30 years experience and a patient of Dr. De Latorre's for over 6 years. My primary doctor highly recommended him. Dr. De Latorre put together a plan of care which included medications as well as surgical interventions. I receive injections in my spine 1-2 times per year and I am impressed with his skill and the skills of his Nurse Anesthetist. They are both compassionate with great bedside manner.His office staff is fantastic. I trust Dr De Latorre with my life.

I am an ex professional athelete of 16 years and have had a total of 16 surgeries. The office is very clean from front to ba to back and cannot say enough of the staff and Dr himself. They have changed my quality of life more than they will ever know. I know what it feels like from being hearded in like cattle just for the Dr to pad his pockets and this office in know way does this. Thanks again to Jordan, Maria and Steph and rest of staff for all they do!
in Dade City, FL |
I have been going to Dr. De La Torre for over 6 years now and he has been able to keep my pain level at a minimum and when I needed surgery he guided me to a top surgeon. I completely trust his judgement and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of pain management.
in Tampa, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr. De La Torre since he began his practice several years ago. I have a progressive illness with no cure that leaves me in constant pain. Dr. De La Torre is compassionate in addition to his professional manner and vast medical knowledge. He is always willing to take a few minutes to talk to me about a concern I might have. I have spoken with other patients I've gotten to know and each person I've met feels the same way about Dr. De La Torre.
in Tampa, FL |
I was in a lot of pain from multiple bulging and herneated discs as well as nerve damage. After a few procedures and pain mainagement I have gain back a lot of my mobility. I am still in some pain but no where near the amount I was in before I saw Dr. Del La Torre. I thank him and his wonderful staff for all the help they have give to me to get my life back on track and I would recommentd them to anyone else who is in back pain or any other sports injury.

I’m not a person that gives a lot of feedback about products and services but I decided today to change that outlook and provide an honest analysis of Dr. Jose De La Torre and his office New Tampa Interventional Pain and Sports Medicine. Waiting time extremely long. One hour every time. He never read my chart so I had to inform him of my issues. He even got the arm wrong. The problem was with my right arm ...not the left. I think he is just after insurance money. Do not use this docto
