If he is like his staff- I phoned about getting my son into see him, they are accepting patients if family is already a patient. Secretary said she have to check on insurance-hello my other son is a patient -same insurance. Never heard back, phoned and emailed no response. My son who is a patient has been calling for over a month as they are holding up PT due to work related . injury. The staff is a reflection of the doctor - look elsewhere!!

My mom recommended me to Dr. Torpey and he reminds me of how doctors used to be. He takes the time to get to know his patients and he listens to what you are there for. I have gone with her on a few appointments and decided to make him my PCP. He is an extremely intelligent doctor who knows how to break things down into everyday terms.

Only able to treat extremely basic ailments, and even didn't treat an alergic reaction to medication well. Poor communication with specialist he referred. Initially Office staff denied administering immunization to my child, later same day "found empty vial". Almost lost immunization records for my child. Very negligent about records and gathering records of other physicians. Abruptly left room during several visits without explanation.
