Dr. Latorre and his staff are very knowledgeable and truly concern about your needs. I came to him when no one could diagnose my condition. He started treating me and referred me to get therapy at their facility, I am now close to walking again and so very thankful that I found them. They take the time to go the extra mile and most of all they listen, not just make assumptions on the best treatments for patients.

Dr. Latorre is a terrific doctor and person. I was in St. David's on 32nd street for about 6 months after my injury in 2012. Dr. Latorre and the St. David's staff were great. Dr. Latorre shows genuine concern and was always very thorough. He actually listens to your questions and concerns and has answers. My follow-ups at his Austin Rehabilitation Specialists are just as good. The staff are polite, courteous and efficient. I've never had a long wait for my appointments. Highly recommend!!

Dr. Latorre has always been there when I needed him. He is without a doubt the most respectful and courteous Dr. I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He listens to your concerns and problems and goes out of his way to solve whatever issues you might be having. He sets the bar very high and that's the way it should be. The staff there is just as amazing as Dr. Latorre himself. If you call needing to see Dr. Latorre they will find a way to fit you in because they actually care.

I recently visited Dr. Latorre for my annual checkup. What I really appreciate is not being rush in and out like at most Dr. appointments. Dr. Latorre is very good at listening to me and discussing my concerns.

I had an injury that required a below the knee amputation. I was lucky enough to find Dr. LaTorre as my recovery physician. Knowing he was also had a Bk prosthesis made me sure he would be sympathetic to any issues I might have. I find him thorough but also compassionate and understanding. I recommend him strongly.
