I’ve been a patient of Dr. Torrey for almost 25 years. The level and Care and professionalism are honestly unmatched in the Raleigh Durham area, and honestly better than any care I’ve received around the world. As the practice developed and grew larger, the level of care and professionalism has always been the priority of the practice. You never feel like a number while at this office. I’ve seen multiple medical professionals in the practice and each person continues to care as Dr. Torrey has from the beginning. Additionally, the practice isn’t only limited to the professional medical staff but also to the support staff. The administration and billing staff is top notch and will honestly do anything they can to make or adjust appointments to fit your needs. The practice also offers an in office lab, so blood work is as easy as walking down the hall. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone who really cares about the quality of their care.
