What People Say About Dr. Michel Torbey, MD
I was transferred to OSU through the ER. I was being treated and observe following one of six strokes. I the time of my visit and interaction with Dr Torbey, I was scared, confused, and in desperate need of information about the cause of my strokes. Unfortunately I was not given any information during my four day admission, as in zero information. I was not told about the kind of strokes I was having, or the necessary steps to prevent future strokes. I would have expecte communication.
