Dr. D has been the best doctor I've ever had and I've had a few in my lifetime. She kept it 100% the entire visit and doesn't try to prescribe you for stuff you dont need. She was fun and laidback and made my visit very settling. She was very knowledgeable in everything we talked about.

I haven't been to a doctor in awhile. My fiancé did some research and found Dr. De La Torre and I was very happy. She made me feel welcome and comfortable. She was very knowledgeable and had an answer for everyquestion. She even gave me some quick easy facts for my own knowledge. My fiancé plans on making an appointment with her now and I will recommend her to anyone looking for a Doctor. I live an hour away and am so glad I made the trip. We have found our Doctor.

I gave Dr De La Torre a perfect rating 8 months ago on this site. My recent appointment affirmed that my original rating was warranted. I have nothing but good things to say about this doctor. Her staff is also veryfriendly and people oriented. If you are looking for a new doctor, you'd be hard pressed to find better.
