Dr. Torakawa's office is amazing. She has wonderful staff and the doctor is very knowledgeable. She spends a lot of time with you and explains everything in great detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Torakawa was recommended so I tried to get an appointment. I called her office 8 times with no luck. I actually went to her office and tried to get an appointment, however they said they would get back to me. They NEVER did. I have skin cancer and I can't get a Doctor to treat it. I am very sadden by their lack interest in providing minimal care for those who need it.
