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...more

I found Dr. Torres to be most helpful to me. She is a wonderful, caring physician and helped me to regain my balance and walking ability. She also listened carefully to what I had to say and answered all questions and concerns. I'm sorry that I live out of state now and can't continue in her...more
