How was your experience with the doctor?I hate having to go to new doctors, but Dr. Torres was knowledgeable, took the time to answer all my questions and I felt like he was genuinely interested in my situation. Not brushing me off to get to the next patent. Since health care has changed so much, I thought I would never find another "family" doctor that didn't make me feel like a number and paycheck.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Torres and his staff were friendly, helpful and professional. I really appreciated their attentiveness and bedside manner. Dr. Torres was extremely knowledgeable, took the time to attend to my questions, and made me feel at ease about my Moe’s procedure. The wait time didn’t bother me at all, it was maybe 10 min and what I kind of expected. I was glad to be in good hands.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Torres was thorough, helpful, explained options, anticipated concerns, and answered all my questions with consideration. His assistant (nurse, PA?) was equally thorough and knowledgeable. I have zero complaints about the service I received in the office. My only complaint would be with the scheduling reminder program they use. First, it robocalled my cell at 8:30 on Sunday morning, three days before the apptmt. Later that day, it texted me to confirm the appt, and then on the morning of, it texted me again to "check in." One of those would have been fine, but I feel that was too many notifications. And no one should get a robocall on Sunday at 8:30 AM!

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my third visit to Dr. Torres' office. While I waited about 40 minutes to be seen, that is out of the ordinary. During prior visits, I was see at my appointment time. Dr. Torres is very intelligent and knowledgeable and, he has an excellent bedside manner. He takes the time to explain things in clear terms. I have never experienced him as impatient and I have never felt rushed by him or his staff. The office staff is very patient and professional - always service with a smile. Dr. Torres has been a great find for me and one of those rare dermatologists who still practices medical dermatology and, while he also performs cosmetic procedures, he does not push those services on you.

How was your experience with the doctor?La atención del Doctor Omar Torres fue excelente, pero la recepcionista es pesima, me enviaron un mensaje para que confirme mi asistencia a la cita via telefónica, llamé varias veces, la recepcionista ni siquiera se tomaba el trabajo de pedirme que espere en la línea, simplemente me ponía en espera y pasaban los minutos y nunca se dignaba responder, no se para que piden que confirmen la asistencia a la cita médica si van a poner a responder el teléfono a una persona inútil.
