Really super doctor and cares about his patients.
Lovely doctor. Over qualified. Best ENT I have seen.
Dr. Torchinsky is awesome. I went to his office due to my sinus infection and allergy problems. I would highly recommend him to anyone who surfs or swims in the ocean. In terms of customer service, checking in was easy because I filled out the medical forms online. I didn't wait longer than 10 minutes. In terms of care, Dr. Torchinsky was conversational, knowledgable and funny. I left the office with a regimen to cure my sinus infection, prescription for allergy relief, and recommendations for surf spots around town. Fun fact: Dr. Torchinsky is a surfer who grew up in Santa Cruz. If you're a surfer, you should see this doc.
Great Doctor - very thorough and helpful.
Very nice and professional. Highly recommended.
Excellent Doctor and made a difference right away
My experience meeting Dr. Torchinsky was great! He was personable, knowledgeable, & I felt he really listed to my concerns. He came up with an easy, conservative plan to help me with my issues which he feels confident will help. But if they don't, he presented me with other options which we will discuss further if needed at my next follow up. I highly recommend Dr. Torchinsky for your ENT!
He is a bright capable phsysian.

Extremely personable, warm, took an interest in me as a person not just a patient.
Very caring, and persanable
They did not have my appointment through Zoc Doc, HOWEVER, even though they were totally booked, the person at the front desk was very kind, and managed to squeeze me in so I was able to see the Doctor. He was extremely good and thorough, and made sure I understood everything. Totally put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Torchinsky !
He always takes the time to make sure everything is ok
Extremely nice doctor, dedicates himself, really appreciate.
this is not only a good ent specialist, but a good person too. A+++++ service, attitude, professionalism, all the above
He was awesome! He took time to listen to my history, carefully reviewed medications I had before recommending new medication to try. He also used a microscope in my nose before making any recommendations. Never felt rushed and appeared to genuinely care about finding a solution to my ailments.
Well, I believe that the most important thing you look for in a doctor,the reason you go there, is healing your illness and this is somthing early to judge for me because I've just left the clinic 3 hours ago. But the best thing I like about the doctor that he didn't make me feel that he's in a hurry, like most doctors, and he tried to explain to me the situation and moreover tried to look it up in my mother tongue to make sure I got it although it wasn't smth serious.It was 5 minute waiting after filling the regular papers for 1st visit.
Very informative! He goes the extra mile for you! He called my insurance to get an MRI approval for me! Very friendly attitude, extremely attentive,and also knowledgable... I left his office with a peace of mind.
Dr. Cyrus Torchinsky is nice and dedicated. I feel very much better after listened to his exlaination about my health prolem.

Amazing doctor, terrible front desk girl.
Great doc, he is a surfer and understands ear and nose symptoms that can come from years of being in the water. He seems to me to be a talented ENT, very knowledgable, well spoken, and overall a solid guy.
Very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, listens, friendly
He is very experienced and knowledgable in his field. He treats patients like a human being and never rushes through the process. He places values on patient education, so you feel like you can talk about all of your concerns related to the issue to Dr. Torchinsky. He answers to patients' questions very thoroughly with explanations.
He is personable and smart. He doesn't waste time and has plenty of ideas for ways to proceed. I would recommend without reservation, except that I have not get picked up his prescriptions or had a second visit, so I think it would be premature. My ear doctor retired, so I am looking for a replacement. He may be it. Not that easy to park in Hillcrest.
Fabulous! Patient and charming- put me at ease during an uneasy time. Definitely would recommend him.
