Hmm, not a Doctor I would want operating on my body. Came across as being arrogant with poor bedside manner. I do not want to hear from a surgeon "I don't know or it doesn't matter now" cause it does matter to me. If you can't answer the hard questions before you operate, I don't need you putting a scalpel to my body. Honestly, you just don't seem in to it.

Great visit. Staff and Dr. Torke were very helpful.

Dr. Torke is so caring and compassionate for his patients! A doctor that really cares and will do whatever he can to accommodate. Very pleasant office and staff.

Dr Torke did my right knee replacement ant I am so thankful for his expertise. I can now walk pain free , and the surgery has helped me be able to walk again!
in Palm Harbor, FL |
From start to finish, Dr Torke treated me with the utmost professionalism. His office is very efficient with wonderful staff as well. My surgery was handled by his well trained skills and follow up was perfect. His uplifting personality helped allay any fears I had and relaxed my tension. I would highly recommend him. One day prior to my surgery, my daughter in law broke her hand and was treated by him with the same level of concern and care. All doctors should follow his exemplary example

He was so much in a rush, had 5 other knee replacements that day, that he messed up my knee replacement by not waiting long enough for the cement to cool off. The result is that it came loose a few weeks later and had to be redone again. It turned out that the cement was not even sticking to the bone.

No bedside manner. Totally disputes every complaint that I make, telling me that it's not possible that I'm experiencing back pain because of the leg length discrepancy since total hip replacement surgery. He states that no one could be allergic to titanium but has never done any research on this subject. So in essence he is stating facts that he can't back up. Any doctor who will not hear what your saying and telling you that there is nothing he can do for you is just bad practice!

Terrible bed side manor..arrogant and unhelpful. Wait forever to see him and he spends all of 3 minutes with u. Staff unorganized and make many mistakes. Dr.makes u feel rushed and uncomfortable. I would feel more secure and happy having my vet. Treat my injury. Horrible experience leave the office in tears every time. Not going back..getting another Dr. I've had enough. Dr. Not there for u...billing messed up...appts. Also messed up. WOW Discusted

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR - I had a hip replacement 2 yrs ago. He assured me I would be level, I'm not, I am over one and half inch shorter where he put the replacement in. This has caused considerable trouble with my gait and walking is difficult and painful. I've had a second opinion and been told that the way Dr Torke put the hip in, he knew I would have problems. now my only option is to have the procedure again - it's been a nightmare.

Dr. Torke is a very straight forward and honest doctor. With his schedule he is almost always available. He will tell me his opinion and give me the option on which way I would like to proceed with my treatment. My whole family goes to him!

Makes you wait for 1 1/2 hours, comes in for 30 seconds and walks out.

I had Mr right hip replaced by Dr Torre in July of 11 and I haven't had a day since then when I haven't had pain in the hip. I can't lift my leg up while sitting and I can't sleep on that side. I have called the office a number of times to talk to him about it but he never returns my calls. I tell everyone I talk to about my experience and I know that some have changed their Dr. Because of what I told them.
