I found Dr. Torres very responsive to my needs after a fall with multiple injuries. She listened to me very carefully and took copious notes. I was quite impressed with her. Her practice is run very efficiently.

This office is an absolute joke. I was referred by a doctor who believed I had narcolepsy and Dr. Torres thought the same so she had me do a sleep study in June. After the study, my appointment to get my results was pushed back (twice) nearly two months later and I was not able to have my results sent to another doctor. I was told the results were inconclusive so I had to do the sleep study again. I am a student and needed a weekend but they had none available so I finally scheduled my study for

Having a seizure D/O for many years and relocating to the area. I found Dr Torres and the staff at coastal neurology not only inept but rude, cold hearted and nasty people. The Dr was nothing to brag about either. I will no longer see a medical person who lacks so much. I have ended my relationship after two visits. I encourage you to look around
