After years of demeaning treatment and procedure based health care, I was thrilled to have personal, patient based respectful conversation and treatment. I especially appreciate the partnership she creates in responding to my particular health care needs so that I am empowered to make the health choices and health care decisions that are right for me. As a lesbian and a big woman I have experienced cruel discrimination and judgement from many health care professionals. This visit was a corrective experience and an invitation to real health care and a doctor that actually wished the best for me. Amazing.

My annual exam and Pap Smear combined were done in less than 25 minutes. I guess if I was trying to rush these things and didn't really care about thoroughness that would be great, but the reason I get these annual exams is to be thorough and catch things early before they become a real problem. The secretary had her purse in hand and had her coat when she took my paperwork at the end, again giving me the impression these folks just wanted to be done with their workday and didn't really have a basic concern for my health at all. Completely spaced renewing my birth control prescription, which was the one of the original intents of my visit, have called several times and left messages with no one getting back to me and now it looks like I get to schedule yet another Pap smear that I might have to pay out of pocket for nother exam after these folks got payed for the one covered per year under my health insurance. Very disappointed and concerned that they get payed by my insurance for these visits when they did nothing and are not concerned with my health in the least.

Great provider, she was recommended to me by a friend. Her lobby is clean and comfortable and has a play area for kids. This was great since my young son was there. Efficient and knowledgeable physician.

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!
