Best doctor ever
We were patients of Dr Torrey for many years and he was the best doctor ever! He could figure out what was wrong with you after others had failed. However, the office situation caused us to leave about 5 years ago. He was too difficult to get an appointment with. But he still sets the standard for primary care.

My doctor for many years
Went through some life acute stress experiences that affected my lab results. I had a feeling about that and it was good to have Dr. Torrey look into this. He Always listens and understands how I prefer to go about my health the most uncomplicated way as I am very sensitive to foreign matters. Need to get back to where I was and next lab work will give us a better idea.
