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 knowledgeableand, 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 pedirmeque 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 complaintis that his office has made mistakes calling in my prescriptions on more than one occasion.

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.

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. DuringMohs 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.
