She is hands down the best doctor I have every been to. It's not just that she always has time for her patients, she is also an excellent diagnostician and gets me in and out with a solution quickly. On a personal note, I feel she saved my niece's life several years ago, finding a heart murmur and getting the baby into Children's Hospital that day.

Dr. Torrez was excellent. I usually dread going to the doctor, but she made the appointment easy and pain-free. She described her treatment philosophy as something like "working together to maximize your health," which is exactly what I was looking for in a practitionor. Would highly reccomend as she is a great listener and very intentional with her treatments.

My appointment was great! Dr. Torrez was warm, friendly yet professional. I was looking for a doctor that I could have a relationship with to work towards my best health. I think I found it! Welcomed questions and recommended tests but did not cram them down my throat. Let me make choices. I would definitely recommend her!

Very friendly and interested in getting to know me personally, however I felt very rushed when it came to my medical concerns and like not all my issues were addressed with a clear plan of treatment.

Dr. Torrez was energetic and friendly. I felt like she spent a lot of time talking and not enough time listening - for instance, she started recommending treatment options for me before listening to the history of what I had tried and what had and hadn't worked. She also has a bias against getting lab tests and prefers to diagnose things like IBS just based on symptoms - not a great fit for me.

I went to see Dr. Torrez after a really negative experience with another doctor. She was kind, knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. She recommended something new for a chronic problem and I am excited to move forward with my new treatment plan.
