I love Dr. Torres. He was the only dermatologist of a total of 3 that I saw who took my complaints seriously and agreed that my symptoms were not "nothing." Turned out I had lymphoma. Throughout treatment, he always showed concern for my well-being and was genuinely pleased to learn that I am now cancer-free. Dr. Torres is very personable and has an excellent bedside manner while remaining professional. He takes his time and explains things in layman's speech. His entire staff is kind and professional. I am so happy to have found Dr. Torres.

This was my first time visiting this office and also my first time seeing a dermatologist. I was nervous, but my experience here was wonderful and the procedure was quick and painless! I will certainly be returning. The doctor was caring, friendly and great at explaining and answering all of my questions. Highly recommended!!!

Dr Torres is very knowledgeable and has excellent bedside manner. The interior of the facility is nicely decorated, clean, and well maintained. The secretaries are professional and helpful. The only reason I deducted a star is due to the fact that the physician assistant sees too many patients too many to save the practice money. That would be fine if she was competent, or even adequate. The assistant at this location is unprofessional, rude, and really not capable.

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!

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.

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.

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.
