Dr Torka gives her time liberally. She has a great "bedside manner". Very easy to talk to. Her assistant/resident, Joe, explained my disease and constantly reassured me while prepping me to see Dr. Torka. a thumbs up for both of them.

My doctor is the best. She is extremely smart and talks to you and not around you. She shows compassion without even trying. I feel so blessed and lucky to have her as a doctor. I was so afraid but I always knew I would be okay with her.

Dr. Torka has been my Oncologist since day 1, back in March of 2017. She is extremely educated in her field. She is compassionate, and understanding of my needs. Bottom line is I trust her with my life, and that is one thing you have to do if you want to beat the terrible diseases she treats.
