When J.R. comes into the room to discuss my many digestive problems, he makes me feel like I’m his most important patient & he has all day to help me....I know this isn’t the case, but his calm and relaxed demeanor projects concern and leaves me relaxed and feeling like I’m discussing my problems with a family member or friend. He goes the extra mile and even followed-up personally with my insurance company to help with coverage for a very expensive medication. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone I know with GI concerns.

I have been going to Dr. Feiock & JR Torrico for over 7 years. I have found them to be good listeners with a great doctor/patient relationship. I have gotten nothing but excellent service. Appointment times are always kept never having to wait. The staff is very helpful and pleasant.

I have been treated over the last few years by JR for a number of various conditions. JR is very knowledgeable about his field of expertise and is able to convene that knowledge in a way that is easy to understand. He listens to the patient and spends whatever time is necessary. I'm very confident in his diagnostic ability and medical treatment.

JR is always upbeat and concerned for his patient's well being. He is thorough in his exam and treatment. He listens to what you have to say and answers questions in terms you can understand. He is part of an excellent team of doctors. Me makes it a pleasurable visit to a sometimes unpleasant condition.

His communication skills are abysmal. He provided me with a list of possible problems but NEVER once said that they were related to my liver. And after having a two-hour exploratory surgery by Dr. Hazan, Dr. Hazan walked into the recovery room and said my liver looked great! So what were all of the other”issues” about?

JR rocks! During my Mom's 1st visit, she was anxious and he put her at ease with jokes, patience & kindness. He took the time to answer our questions and explain everything. I was not able to be there for her f/u visit after her proceedure, and he was happy to have me participate via speaker phone on her cell. My Mom got a kick out of his sense of humor, and we both SO appreciate his concern and top notch care. JR & EVERY staff member in the practice are 1st class pros who also truly care!

JR Torrico, PA, is one of the best physicians I have ever been too. I can’t say enough good things about my experience of having him as my GI physician. He is very personable, knowledgeable, and understanding when it comes to your issues/concerns. I highly recommend seeing JR if you have any GI issues.
