What People Say About Dr. Michael Torchia, MD
Reply
Wonderful Dr. I truly believe he has a good soul, and would trust him implicitly with any family member. Unfortunately he was caught up in a horrendous situation with his employer regarding my care. Even being thousands of miles away he did what he could to help. I have never had anything but wonderful things to say about this Dr. Thank you Dr Torchia for your empathy. It helped.
