I am 64 years old and in my life I have been to many doctors and Dr Torres-Barre is an exceptional lady with so much knowledge and expertise in her profession. Her office staff, PA, & X-ray technicians treated me with so much dignity and assistance I can’t say enough of Dr Torres-Barre who has given me much peace of mind through her care.

I visited Dr Laura Torres-Barre. She is a very loving person. She gave me good time. I am very happy to meet her. She looked at my old reports. I was feeling like my family member. Her team is good as well. I have to mention the name Esmeralda and beautiful lady(forgot name)who was doing my x-ray. I will refer Dr Torres to my family and friends.

Dr. Torres has taken exceptional care of my 84 year old father for his orthopedic needs. She is a highly skilled, professional, patient, and kind orthopedic surgeon. She performed the best repair for his hip that has restored his mobility after two accidental falls. We are grateful for her commitment and dedication to each patient she cares for! Her assistants and office staff also provide exceptional care for her patients on a daily basis. Thank you for a job very well done!

Dr.Torres saw my 93 year old mother in the E/R and performed an emergency partial hip replacement due to my mother falling. She was very through with explaining the procedure and followup. After the release from the hospital i had some questions and left a message with her staff and Dr. Torres returned my call in a timely manner. Great doctor, highly recommend to family and friends.

Waited over three weeks for an appointment. When I finally got there, I waited over an hour and a half for the doctor. I ended up having to leave without being seen and was told the next appointment wasn't until over a month away. I felt very bad having wasted my time. This was very upsetting to me.
