Dr. Torchinsky was wonderful. He took the time to talk with me about the reason for my visit without making me feel rushed. He asked a lot of questions to get at the root of the problem. Overall, he was veryfriendly and extremely helpful. My husband also saw him and reported the same experience.

He explained everything that was happening with my health problem. He also suggested the most holistic approach first, to see if that would help before going to the next step (which would involve medication).

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 becauseI 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.

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. Butif 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 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. Butthe 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.

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 thinkit 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.
