I made an appointment with Dr. Torres, it was suppose to be a first visit and as I'm in the waiting room I'm told that his assistant is the one seeing me not him because he is not in on Wednesdays. Doctors should be in the office even when the assistant is seeing patients.

Do not use Omar Torres. He rushes to judgement about doing surgery when it's not necessarily needed. He's chop-chop-chop hungry, and has done botched surgeries leaving scars that he says will go away in time. THEY DON'T! Further, I had an appointment for my annual exam, today, and was told that he WOULD NOT see me unless I had surgery. That's BLACKMAIL. No Doctor, anywhere, can force a patient to have surgery! He should lose his license. He doesn't really care about patients.
