Dr Torka and her staff are amazing! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Have never felt rushed when they are with me! Also when I went to them for a second opinion (after 10 years with a small town cancer specialist) no one tried to get me to switch to there care (I chose that on my own due to the level of care and modern treatments they offer).

Dr Torka is professional and compassionate. She provides thorough and understandable information. Wait time is usually reasonable and when she is in the visit room with you, you always feel like she spends as much time as you need.

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.

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.
