After waiting over 1 hour the doctor saw me for about 5 minutes. She was very sweet...However, after her "exam" she left the room to write an order. Never returned. Instead her nurse came in and handed me orders for labs & test. I was unable to ask the doctor any questions. I will not return.

Doctor Torres was the first Nuerologist that took time to listen and give me options on treatment. Very kind and feel confident being under her care.
