Verified Patient Reviews
I felt he was quite thorough with my annual body check. I was slightly thrown that he did not check my genital or anal area. But aside from that, he was very thorough.
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.
Effective, professional & very knowledgeable.

Dr Omar and his assistant was great
Dr. Torres was fine and competent but his staff is cold, rude and an important prescription was not called in in a timely fashion.
I've been to many different dermatologists over the years for both cosmetic procedures and skin issues. Dr Torres is by far my favorite, he does beautiful Botox and filler work - never over done! I'm so looking forward to laser treatment.
Dr. Torres is fantastic, he immediately diagnosed my ailment, which other doctors had been unable to do for 6 months. He provided me with a lot of information and advice in an efficient, professional and very friendly manner. My only complaint is that his office has made mistakes calling in my prescriptions on more than one occasion.
Excellent service and Dr Torres was very understanding and made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Torres and his excellent staff are knowledgeable and explain everything making me feel well cared for. Every question is answered completely. The offices are newly renovated and spotless.
This office is professional, friendly and clean. I completely and whole heartedly recommend Dr. Omar Torres and all his staff. Great experience as a patient.
Except for some difficulty in getting a referral (no fault of theirs), my experience was great. Staff was professional and pleasant which made my slight medical misfortune easier to deal with.

attentive and responsive
Dr Torres is an excellent physician. He is extremely patient, empathetic, professional, etc. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. was very professional and solve all my questions. I was really happy to make this visit today.
The front desk staff was efficient in checking me in. A 'welcome to Dermagroup' smile/manner as shown by other staff I interacted with was missing. Dr. Torres was very personable, explained the procedure, answered my questions satisfactorily & did a splendid job. Together with the office's new design, the entire experience was a joy.
Dr. Torres was very thorough and thoughtful in answering my questions during a recent cosmetic consultation for my horizontal forehead lines. He was honest and knowledgeable about specific products on the market right now, which I appreciated. I did have to wait, but only for a few minutes past my appointment time, and it was not a big deal at all. I have also seen Raquel, the P.A. in his practice, for yearly skin screenings, and she is very nice. Convenient Union Square location, lovely office space. Recommended.
i was happily surprized for sure. the office is being renovated but you can see it will be beyond gorgeous. I realyl was happy i found Dr Torres. I look forward to my results with him treating me.
Nice manner and capable.
Went in for a consultation for a minor skin issues and he took care of it immediately in one appointment in less than 10 mins!
I came in with a growth on my back and left without it. Dr. Torres took the necessary precautions to make sure that this growth was nothing but benign, and told me how to take care of it. I am very pleased with the results and how I was taken care of. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Torres is by far the best doctor. My daughter is 15 and he was patient and answered every question she had. I would highly recommend him to anyone young or old.
Overall it was a very productive and professional visit. Dr. T is a quality specialist.
He is a great doctor!!!
The only delay was that the office didn't have the biopsy from my primary care dermatologist when I arrived. However, that didn't take too long to get faxed over. I didn't have to wait long at all for Dr. Torres. During Mohs surgery, the doctor takes tissue until the skin is clean. Each step, they examine the skin under a microscope before they go further to the next step. But the waiting time in between was maybe 20 minutes – not that long. I'd been told I'd be there up to 3 hours. But I was there less than 90 minutes – much less than expected. The procedure was also relatively pain-free. Dr. Torres is friendly and explained the steps in an easy-to-understand manner. The waiting time was minimal, and I was completely satisfied.
Totally Professional, Warm and I felt Very Comfortable.
It went very well His medical was very efficient and very nice The staff in the front are not as nice
Dr. Torres was excellent! Put me on a new treatment and I'm on my way to beautiful clear skin. He was thorough in explaining how the medication will work and why I should follow this skin care regimen. The office staff and his PA were all very nice also.
Dr. Torres is very patient, pleasant, and professional. Worth of the great reviews.
It was great, however after a few appointments he passed me off to his Physicians Assistant and I only saw him for procedures.
Very good visit: Dr Torres was very knowledgeable, he suggested several good options, plus he found new problems that had not been addressed by my other docs. Highly recommended
Very happy with the service I received. Dr. Torres was sensitive and understanding. The staff was friendly.
I found the staff to be very pleasant. The doctor was very compassionate. The office was clean. Great area, easy to get to.
Both doctor and PA were friendly, professional and most of all, very learned in their field. I was recommended to this specialist very highly by another health care professional and I am as well in the health care profession and will be recommending other patients to him.
