Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Torrez is a good listener, and she clearly values that the patient knows her body and her instincts matter.
Dr Rachel is the bomb!!!!
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.
It was a good doc visit. This was our second with this family practice doc . She was an active and effective listener. Quick but thorough.
Dr. Torrez was very friendly and direct. would 100% recommend.
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.
It was just okay. I really wanted a better solution to my problem besides medication. But overall, she seemed to be a real person.
Dr. Torrez is attentive and involved. I feel like she really cares about my symptoms and in helping to find a solution, but is also easy to talk to with a fun personality and sense of humor.
Showed up early and she immediately saw me. Dr. T is the best!
Great, as always!
Dr.Torrez is the best doctor and her crew is always nice and helpful. Thanks salmon bay for being the greatest.
Dr Torrez and her staff are professional and friendly in equal measure. I no longer live in the area but I make the trip to stay with her practice.
As always, she figures out “what’s wrong” quickly! Great doctor!
She is the absolute best. Genuine, down to earth, caring, and real.
I was in and out within 10 minutes to get my flu shot. Super quick!
Dr. Torrez talks fast, but she really cares and is wicked smart. If it's too fast, just ask her to slow down! :)
Super attentive, great listener. I'm looking forward to having her as my primary doctor.
Excellent, professional care with superb customer service from start to finish. Highly recommended!
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.
Always prompt, professional and personable.
Dr Torrez has an amazing manner with patients. It is like going to see a really smart friend. My wife and I feel lucky to have her as our primary physician.
I did a little research, and now Dr. Torrez is my new doctor. She has a sharp ability to diagnose, is warm and communicative, and at the same time efficient and to the point. Her staff is approachable and warm. Most cool thing, , I rarely have to wait 2 minutes for my appointment. Recommend!
Easy to talk to. Great at explaining the questions I had.
Dr. Torrez is very friendly and knowledgeable. Even though her schedule seemed busy, I was seen right away.
My visit was outstanding
Staff was so nice, and Dr. Torrez saw me right away! She was very thorough and great.
Thoughtful and considerate
She is amazing. Down to earth, helpful, and caring.
Dr. Torrez is very helpful, patient and supportive without wasting any time. On top of that she's always had a great attitude to boot.
always fantastic, caring, thorough!
I was nervous about seeing my first doctor in the US but Rachel and everyone at her practise were great. Efficient, knowledgable and very nice :)
Dr. Torrez was just wonderful....open, thorough and easy to talk with.
Dr. Torrez was awesome
Very personable and gets to know you so she can provide you the best care. Goes the extra mile!
Dr. Torrez is the best in Seattle. I don't know what I would do without her. She is kind, understanding, and incredibly knowledgeable. I can't sing her praises enough.
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.
Overall Dr. Torrez is a good doctor and addressed the problem I had. However, she talked a lot and I felt as if I couldn't communicate everything I wanted to her.
Very knowledgeable and efficient.
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!
Dr. Torrez is amazing. Extremely professional and even gave me a little background of herself since it was my first visit. It won't be my last, she has made me feel welcomed and taken cared of.
Dr Torrez is empathetic, and takes care to get to know each of her patients. She listened to my issues and delt with them all quickly.
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.
Dr. Torrez is wonderful. There is no better general practitioner in the area.
Dr. Torrez is the best! Love her! Her staff is great too!!
Good doctor. Appreciate all that she does.
Dr. Torrez is so wonderful! I always appreciate her kindness, candor, and honest concern for my well-being. She is always fully present during our appointments and is great about explaining things. I'm so happy I trusted the reviews I read when I was looking for a new PCP many years ago!
Dr. Torrez is great! The office had availability right when I needed to be seen after getting in a car accident, they were clear about the procedure with the insurance companies and are always helpful and clear on all my questions. Highly recommend Salmon Bay Family Medicine.
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.
Best. Doctor. Ever.
She is great! She doesn't rush through the appointment, answers all your questions clearly, VERY friendly, makes you feel at ease and comfortable.
Always sympathetic and a great listener.
I know Dr. Torrez cares about my treatment. I feel confident about outcomes when I see her.
I love this Dr. She's quick but thorough. She's very friendly and now my new family pcp :-)
As usual, the visit was friendly, efficient, and helpful!
Office staff very professional and courteous. Got me in a few minutes early. Dr. Torrez listenrd to me, asked the right questions and ordered test to get to the bottom of the cause of my symptoms.
Rachel is an excellent doctor. She's been treating me for years and is consistently open to taking my point of view into consideration.
It was a good visit but in the comment section when booking my appointment I specified that I was seeing the doctor for a certain procedure. After seeing her in her office and speaking to the secretary, the nurse and the doctor, only then was I informed that they could not offer the service I requested. Then I was referred to another doctor next door who was completely booked up. I drove 2.5 hours for this appointment, highly disappointed.
I love Dr Torrez, she is very easy to talk to and always seems to be in a good mood, which is contagious!
Dr. Torrez is amazing. She has great intuition. In the eight years that I’ve been seeing her she has often resolved my issue on the first visit and if the problem persists she has been happy to keep tackling it with me until there is a solution that works for me. I have some chronic medical issues and it is refreshing to work with a professional that actually listens.
Dr. T is amazing. Very thorough. Always with a smile.
She is wonderful.
As always.. Dr. Torrez and her staff were delightful, quick, and to the point, which I appreciate!
Dr. Torrez was invested in my wellbeing.
She and her staff go above and beyond. I am extremely pleased and will continue to recommend her to my friends!
I am so grateful for my doctor, Rachel Torrez! She is a caring, considerate, patient, upbeat, awesome physician!
Was in and out quickly and on time
Dr. Torrez asked me to come in for my yearly physical, for which I did today. She's very understanding about what I am comfortable with and what I'm not and is very supportive of my feelings. Not only that but she's extremely personable and welcoming. She's been my primary care doctor for a few years. Before that, I refused to even think about seeing a doctor because I've had so many terrible experiences in the past but I actually enjoy going to see her.
Everyone was so pleasant and friendly. No wait time, no anxiety. Dr. Torrez was kind, gentle, friendly, efficient, and easy to talk to. Couldn't recommend more highly!
She is amazing!!!
A doctor who actually listened.
Dr Torrez is the best doctor I've ever had. Even though I no longer live in the area, I drive up to Seattle because I know I'll never find a better, nicer, or more helpful doc.
Dr. Torrez was wonderful! I will definitely be returning for regular visits.
Dr. Torrrez is both personable and professional and cares about her patients. She explained all aspects of my bloodwork results to me clearly. She demonstrated a thorough knowledge of my personal and medical history. She answered my questions quickly and clearly. Good visit.
Pleasure to visit, extremely helpful and informative visit.
I brought my daughter here because she wanted a female doctor. I was very, very impressed with Dr. Torrez. She was direct, honest, straight to the point, and funny! Her bedside manner is unbeatable. I'm glad we finally found my daughter a new PCP.
Dr. Torrez is wonderful!
I ended up switching doctors from UW medicine to Dr Torrez due to the wait times I was having at the UW clinics. My doctor was always 30-60 mins late for an appointment. It drove me nuts. I love that I don't have to wait with dr Torrez and most of the time I can get a same day appointment. So easy to book online as well! Dr Torrez is great! She listens to my concerns and offers excellent solutions. Highly recommend!
The staff are always really friendly.
Dr Torrez is efficient and helped me figure out several options for what I was seeking. She also didn't harass me for being late on scheduling some female exams, just one reminder as I was leaving. I loved being able to finish my appointment quickly. I would definitely recommend her if you are a person of color as she is aware of the conditions people of color are prone to like hypertension diabetes and helped me keep an eye on that.
She was so nice and awesome with my son! Highly recommend!!
I always enjoy seeing Dr. T. Her bedside manner is the best. She is upbeat, kind, and never rushed. Her appropriately inquisitive attitude of "why are you here today and how can I help?" has been consistent over many years as a patient. She remembers the little things and will discuss options with me and not just tell me what to do. I feel like we are true partners in my health care.
I was recommended by a friend and current patient. Dr. Torrez is very energetic and straightforward in a fun kind of way. Very understanding and gives me the impression she knows what she's doing.
Dr. T. is always fantastic. She listens and is a very caring doctor.
Dr. Torrez is the best!
It was very nice. I have anxiety around doctors and Rachel set me at ease. She was friendly, quick, efficient and reassuring. I look forward to having Salmon Bay Family Medicine as a partner in my health!
Dr. Torres is always caring and friendly.
Dr. Torrez introduced herself and helped reassure me about my symptoms, which I really appreciated!
Best family doctor in Ballard!
I've been seeing Dr. Rachel for over a decade, she and her staff are the absolute best!
She's a confident and fun person, but she didn't really pay attention to my disease. She changed my medicine without further consideration, and the new prescription made me much worse. Now I have to go to a clinic and get a surgery. So I don't think I'll ever go back again.
Dr. Torrez understands the importance of being on time and making the most of an appointment. She listens to me and quickly provides me with knowledge, facts and recommendations. I find this doctor to be very in tune with my lifestyle and shows a genuine interest in my well being. I will go to her for as long as I am in this state.
Excellent doctor who listens and keeps updated.
Dr Torrez is very upfront and blunt, in the best way possible. I really appreciate the no B.S. factor. And she's a hoot!
She cuts to the chase and helps you identify the issue??
Doctor Torres was incredibly warm and answered all of my questions with very clear language. I get nervous and on edge at doctor's offices and she put me at ease immediately. I highly recommend her and will continue to see her.
Dr. Torrez is such a wonderful physician! She is smart, quick and fun to be around. Love her.
The visit was fine. I had trouble locating the office inside the facility (couldn't find the right floor or the entrance), and was less than 5 minutes late. I saw the receptionist marked "LATE" in big letters on my intake form, which felt a little rude - couldn't that have been a private note? I made an appointment for a general wellness exam and birth control, and I wasn't thrilled. I hate to leave a negative review, but I wanted to ensure that I am healthy so I took the time to go to the doctor, and most of my questions and concerns were answered with, "We don't worry about that until you're X age." The whole appointment was 15 minutes long. It made me feel like I shouldn't bother going to the doctor at all until I'm "X age." Neither the doctor nor the physician's assistant or the receptionist bothered to make a follow up appointment for my next birth control or wellness appointment (or even ask if I was interested in scheduling), so I will be going elsewhere.
DR. Torrez was very professional, courteous and sensitive to all of our needs, questions and concerns. It is hard to find a doctor who WANTS to get to know you as a person. I highly recommend DR. Torrez to any and all.
Dr. Torrez is the best!
Dr. Torrez takes the time to get to know you, hear you out and dialogue potential causes and treatment options. Even though her office is out of the way for us, the commute is worth it to see a Doctor who isn't rushing a diagnosis and prescription band-aid.
I love Dr. Torrez. She understands my needs and makes me feel heard and comfortable. I truly appreciate her having always being there for my husband and I. We have been seeing Dr. Torrez since we moved to Seattle almost 7 years ago. Her staff are also great to work with! Accommodating and helpful with scheduling conflicts. An overall welcoming, supportive environment when you are feeling not at your best.
Dr. Torrez has a very calming effect on patients I think. I have been going to Dr. Torrez for many years and I find her perspective refreshing and updated. When I need to do better she tells me what I need to do to keep my health proactive. I like that the best. Always has a great bedside manner as well, funny, to the point and no nonsense, just what you need when you are not feeling well. I would give her lots of stars for sure. Cindy S.
Dr. Torrez treats me like family. It's so refreshing to have a doctor that takes the time to find out how you are doing outside of the examination room. She will be my primary for as long as she practices!
Dr Torrez has been my primary care doctor for going on 10 years now. She's always calmed me down when I've been freakin out about something, her easy going manner makes it so easy to talk about uncomfortable things. I feel like I see a friend every time I go there because she's so personable. She really is highly recommended!
Favorite doctor ever. She is smart, relatable, and warm.
She's professional, kind, and compassionate. I would highly recommend her.
It has taken me a very long time to find a primary care provider, but I feel like I finally did! Rachel is amazing at putting you at ease and I feel like I could comfortably discuss anything with her. I'll definitely be back.
Dr. Torrez has been our family doctor for close to 10yrs. She is outstanding. She listens, she's pragmatic, she's willing to think outside the box, she answers questions, she's kind, she loves what she does. On top of that, her staff has always been superb--from reception, to nurses and PA's, even their office manager/bookkeeper(?) is lovely. I've never had a doctor this good.
Dr Torrez is personable, friendly and will put you at ease. I would highly recommend her.
She is amazing...I am blessed to have found this hidden Gem!!!
Practical, pragmatic and cares about people. I drive a long way to see Dr. Torrez because they don't make 'em like her anymore.
Dr. Torrez is really easy to talk to about ANYTHING! I'm SO glad I was referred to her! Her staff is amazing as well!!
She was very easy to talk to
Dr. Torrez is an amazing doc. Lucky to have found her years ago.
The staff and Doctor were very welcoming and efficient.
Dr. Torrez and her staff are always great. My family loves coming here :)
My visit with Dr. Torrez was honestly the best I've had maybe ever. I was seen right away, which I feel is very rare! And Dr. Torrez was very efficient, personable, friendly, and made me feel like she actually cared about my health. I would highly recommend Dr. Torrez!
I love Dr. Torrez. Very understanding, patient and knowledgeable.
Seemed knowledgeable, was easy to talk to and the experience was positive.
Dr.Torrez is always great to see, even if it's under unfortunate circumstances. She took care of two ailments in one week for me; thank you for the great care as always!
As always, Dr. Torrez was compassionate and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
It was great, as always.
Dr. Torrez is great! To the point but very personable and I immediately felt comfortable. I have been looking for a doctor in Seattle for a few years and think I finally found her!
Dr. Torrez is fabulous. She is extremely knowledgeable and can often diagnose problems very quickly. She is a good listener and very kind. I would recommend Dr. Torrez to anyone. Our whole family sees her. My daughter loves her and says she wishes she could hang out with her. The office staff are very friendly and professional, all the rooms are clean and tidy, and the waiting room is very comfortable, although you're not usually there very long. 5 Stars for sure.
I was way early, she had time and got me in right away. She explains everything in a way you understand. Takes her time to make sure every question is answered. I just love her.
I think Dr. Torrez is probably the best physician I've ever come across. That's saying a lot as I've had some pretty major medical issues over the years and lived in three different countries and four different states. She's very capable and kind.
Dr. Torrez is so personable and easy to get along with. Very professional and would highly recommend her!
She was straight forward. I loved her approach to my overall health and well being as opposed to merely treating symptoms. She will no doubt be my GP from now on.
Dr. Torrez is very personable and no-nonsense. A great sense of humor! Easy to schedule appointments. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a PCP.
Dr. Torrez has been my primary physician for many years. She is wonderful - very professional, knowledgeable, caring and friendly. I can't recommend her enough!
Amazing and professional Doc. Met all my needs and asked about my family. A+
Dr. Torrez really cares about you. To find a health professional and to create a personal relationship is priceless. She gives valuable, straightforward advice and perspective. A+!!
Very friendly and knowledgeable! I was seen right away as usual.
Short wait time, friendly staff. Dr. Torrez took time to get to know me and asked if I had any questions. She seems invested in her patients health care and journey.
Best doctor ever! My whole family goes to Dr. Torrez! She is wonderful!
The last couple of times, I've felt a little dismissed, but I'm also super healthy, so it hasn't bothered me that much. But today, Dr.Torrez really took the time to address all my specific concerns and provide great explanations as to why test were or were not being done. I also felt like we collaborated on a plan for addressing my three (albeit minor) specific issues.
She was great! Really addressed all my concerns. I hadn't seen a dr in 6 years and she took every detail I asked for and fully explained all my questions. Great team there.
What a marvelous lady and a terrific doctor.
Rachel is the most positive, optimistic and "user friendly" physician I have ever met. I can't recommend her high enough. I think of her as a friend.
Very upfront. Friendly. Relieved me of some worries.
Dr. Torrez is always helpful, down to earth and informative. My visits to her office have all been great experiences. I can't say enough great things about her and her staff.
would not recommend. after a quick survey of questions to determine whether or not I was depressed, she concluded that I was and began to recommend medication. I told her I did not want anti-depressants to be my first line of defense and asked what recommendations she had for naturally tackling minor depression (e.g. advice on diet, exercise, sleep), and she went back to her original point of medication, saying that that was what she recommended, which frustrated me. continuing on, she started to share with me her own medicated management of depression, as if to try to convince me there’s nothing wrong with being on anti-depressants (which, I agree - there isn’t at all; but I wanted to understand alternative options before going that route), which 1) surprised me, because of how insistent she was, and 2) frustrated me further, because it seemed like she wasn’t even open to having a conversation about alternative, natural treatments and recommendations. I left the appointment feeling confused and upset because of how the quick diagnosis was handled and decided not to ever return. upside to the appointment was a short wait time and she was at least friendly and jovial. just left feeling like I couldn’t trust her medical advice.
Dr. Torrez always has a way of making me feel comfortable. She's the best!
She's awesome! So easy to talk to, and I felt like she didn't rush through the appointment.
Friendly and intuitive. She knew exactly what I needed help with and was knowledgeable.
Dr. Torrez was very sweet and carefully listened to all of my concerns. I will definitely go back to see her again.
She is wonderful! Fast honest and gentle. Just perfect.
She is so personable and she gets you in right away!
I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Torrez. She was personable, attentive, and did not disregard any of my concerns. I typically don't enjoy my experiences with physicians, but Dr. Torrez took the time to introduce herself, share her medical/treatment philosophy, and quickly put me at ease. The receptionist and physician's assistant were also extremely nice and were great representatives for Dr. Torrez's medical practice. As promised, I received my medical results within a week. I think I've found my new primary care physician!
Dr. Torrez is the real deal. I've never waited in her office to be seen (ever) and she really takes the time to sit down with you and talk through all of your concerns and how you are doing in general. She always inquires as to how things are going in my personal life (with questions that indicate she's very aware of who I am and cares about me) and carefully explains any issues I'm experiencing, from the causes to the treatment plan. Also, this sounds strange, but sometimes I think she's a magician. I'll go in and describe my complaints and she instantly knows what's wrong and has me on my way with the appropriate treatment, whether that is medication or natural supplements. She also is very diligent about not prescribing unless she thinks it is the appropriate course of action; she will suggest natural alternatives where it makes sense, and adjust to medication if necessary. Love Dr. Torrez.
I love seeing Dr. Torrez...which is saying a lot since I only see her when something is wrong with me! She is very efficient yet visits never feel rushed. She diagnoses my issues very quickly and has yet to be wrong (been seeing her for over three years). She has a great sense of humor and I'm so glad that I found her!
I've been visiting Dr. Torrez for a few years and, as usual, this visit was great. She's friendly, engaging and has a great sense of humor. I told her the day we met that I'd never been fond of doctors but she quickly won me over and I can sure say that I like her a lot. I'll be a patient of hers as long as she continues to practice.
Dr Torrez was very friendly, and there was almost no wait time at all, which I really appreciate. However, everything felt a little rushed and quick, and I left feeling a little confused about some advice the dr gave me. I wish our appointment had been a little slower and more relaxed.
My first visit with Dr. Torrez was fantastic. She took time before we began my annual physical to tell me about herself and her professional history, which was comforting and reassuring. She had an excellent beside manner and we had a great conversation beyond the reason I had even made an appointment. I feel very confident making her my new primary physician.
I'm always in awe of Rachel's ability to simultaneously diagnose and evaporate my anxiousness. She listens and treats without dwelling on the negative. Brilliant.
Dr Torrez is awesome. She remembers me from previous visits, not just what's in my chart. I feel comfortable enough to be totally open about my lifestyle and health concerns.
Dr. Torrez is a wonderful physician who truly strives to uphold the modern Hippocratic Oath.
She is very personable and humorous. Good listening skills and explanations were easy to understand.
Dr. Torrez is prompt and friendly, and very easy to talk to. I recommend her to everyone I know who's seeking a new primary care provider.
My visits with Dr. Torrez are always good.
She was highly professional, knowledgeable, good bedside manner, empathetic and personable. Her office staff was equally professional and courteous. These are all rare features these days. I would highly recommend Dr. Torrez and will return to see her for follow up.
I appreciate the Dr. Torrez takes a personal interest about what is going on in my life. It's my feeling that she views me as a whole person rather than as a specific ailment!
I have been searching for a quality family physician since getting my own insurance and Dr. Rachel Torrez exceeded my expectations. The rave reviews that led me to her practice in the first place ring true. She is accommodating, knowledgable and you can tell she is genuinely looking out for your best interest. For this being my first visit, I think this is the most comfortable I have ever felt. I love her commitment and desire to make it known and make it feel like this is truly a partnership in making her patient's health and well-being the priority. The time, patience and investment is exuded here and I look forward to making this my regular clinic.
Dr. Rachel is amazing!! She is down to earth and I felt very comfortable in her care. She answered all of my questions regarding my health concerns and gave me a good and thorough check up. While I don't want to get sick, I'm excited about seeing her again!!
She's been my doctor for 10 years, and I have moved around Seattle a lot. She's worth the drive and you won't find a better more caring and honest doctor.
Dr. Rachel is my kind of doctor! The first thing she said to me: "we are partner's in getting and keeping you healthy" struck me as quite profound. It sounds elementary enough, but her sincerity gave that statement real meaning. Dr. Rachel has an awesome beside manner always quick with a joke and a smile, she makes you feel at ease. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about a realistic goal for your health, I highly recommend giving Dr. Torres a try. Also, thanks to ZocDoc for making selecting a new doctor a pleasant experience.
Dr Torrez is wonderful. She has a great bedside manner, sense of humor, and high level of practical medical knowledge. She makes a point to understand you and find ways to connect with you. I trust her opinion and diagnosis.
Probably the best experience I've had going to the DR- she's was thorough, personable and professional. She definitely is passionate about health and making sure you have a partner in your health plan. So glad I found her!!
We're going to be a great team!
Rachel has the right stuff ! Confident, honest and caring. She has been my personal MD for many years, and I continue to recommend her to friends and colleagues. Highest marks!
She was fantastic, professional and helpful as always.
Dr. Torrez is the best physician I've ever seen! She was so personable and asked me a lot of questions that showed she wanted to get to know me as more than just a patient. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all things health related.
She's fabulous in every sense of the word
Dr. Torrez is great! Very personable, quick and thorough and answers all questions! I never felt rushed. Great experience!
As usual zocdoc helped me find a doctor I really liked. Dr.Torrez was professional and to the point, but also seemed very personable even for our super short appointment. I will most likely return to her if I need a doctor again since I'm new to the area.
Got there early and was was seen early! When I saw her, I explained my symptoms and she was able to explain what was happening in my body and how to remedy it.
Dr. Torrez is great!
The sweetest doctor I have ever met. Very friendly and care for her patient. So glad to see her!! She helps me out a lot.
Always very kind and personable. Asks questions about what's going on in my life and isn't pushy.
This was another great visit. Everything was exceptional as usual.
I've been a patient of Rachel's for about 14 years now and I couldn't imagine seeing someone else. She's the best!
She has never let us down and provides the best care and counsel.
A very personable Dr.
She was great as always. Very friendly, makes me feel comfortable and quick easy visit.
Dr. Torrez was professional and helpful, and clearly wants the best for her patients, without being pushy or judgmental. I felt extremely comfortable to be totally open with her on my first visit, and she respected my point of view when discussing my healthcare decisions.
Had a wonderful first appointment w Dr Torrez. She was very attentive and efficient.
I've been kgoing to Dr. Torrez for quite afew years. JShe's very personable and fun to work with. I appreciate her seeing me as an equal partner in managing my health and takes personal interest in my life.
Dr. Rachel Torrez is a rare find -- a general practitioner in solo practice who truly loves her work and her patients from baby to senior. She is empathetic, very smart, and has a great sense of humor. Highly recommend!
She's the best. Always
Rachel and her staff set one at ease - they listen and take the time necessary to make certain one has their needs met. Very upbeat bedside manner!
The wait time to see Dr. Torrez was not long. The medical assistant did not take any vital signs at all. Dr. Torrez came to the conclusion that I have mixed headaches/migraines. When I asked if she wanted to do any diagnostics she asked why. wrote a prescription for percoset and told me to take that and an NSAID. said that would knock it out. It didn't. I STILL have a headache.
As always, a great visit!
I'm always able to get in right away to see Dr. Torrez. She's amazing, has the best bedside manner, is very up-front and informative even when you feel silly for asking a question. I've had some really bad experiences with doctors and nurses alike. She never makes me feel silly for having a concern and has me in and out as quickly as possible. She even made me laugh on my first appointment with her to help ease my nerves. I highly recommend Dr. Torrez!
Dr. Torrez is the best doctor I've ever seen, period.
Dr. Torrez is always a good listener. She has a great ability to screen through all of the extraneous information and get to the heart of the matter. Always personable and efficient. Matter of fact.
Dr. Torrez was professional and personally engaging. Her initial diagnosis led her to recommend a second opinion for which I have an appointment, but have not yet gone. Her opinion encompassed my life details and needs.
Great! Felt really comfortable
I felt quite comfortable and she introduced herself and listened to my concerns. She was extremely nice and I appreciated that she shared something of who she was so I could get to know her a bit. My only complaint would be the speed of the visit. I felt like the 10 minutes wasn't quite as long as I might have liked for a check-up, even if I understand why doctors move so quickly these days.
She is the best!
I love Dr. Torrez!! She gives me the attention and service I need from a practitioner. Really friendly, kind, and sincere.
She was exstreamly friendly, easy going, qucik and to the point. Even gave me refurels for other dr to help with what she didn't specialize in!
Dr Torrez is quick and efficient but she covers all the essential territory and answers all my questions. She's got excellent resources for referrals and is always right on top of my healthcare plan.
I had a great experience. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
I was very happy with this doctor. I was able to be seen immediately by her, and she was able to properly diagnose my issue. She was very thorough, and I feel very good about her.
Rachel will always give you her full attention, fact based treatments and genuine recommendations. Until now, I never noticed any difference between the quality of care from doctors...this woman is above and beyond the average care giver.
Dr Torrez was in and out in about 4 minutes. She didn't tell me what was wrong or even explained what I needed. She said take this up front and was out the door. When I called back to ask what if anything was wrong it was a little before 430 pm and nobody answered the phone. Office closes at 430 but I expected someone to answer up until then. Dr Torrez told me all about her, but seemed very uninterested in me and what my medical problem was. Disappointed after reading good reviews from her. Will not go back.
Dr. Torrez is a REAL doctor! I feel like she is listening to what I'm telling her. I feel in good hands with Dr. Torrez!
Dr. Torrez was fantastic! She was very easy to talk to and made conversation flow. She was very funny and I appreciated making light of what could be an uncomfortable situation. I will definitely be making her my primary physician!
Dr. Torrez was very quick and got right to business.
Doc Torrez goes above and beyond! She cares for you just like you are a part of her family. Great staff. Well done??
Perhaps what I appreciate most about Dr Torrez is her ability to explain her diagnosis. Very impressive. I feel fortunate to have her support.
Dr. Torrez is terrific!
She's a great doctor and always friendly and helpful
Always very friendly & personable. Shows she really cares about what's going on.
Dr. Torrez is the best doctor I've ever had. Smart, caring and accessible. Can recommend her without hesitation.
We have always been satisfied with Dr T as our pediatrician. We were AMAZED at her demeanor and skills as an OB/Deliv doc.
I've been seeing Dr. Torrez for 3 years now and have taken my daughter to see her. I feel very comfortable and cared for.
Dr. Torrez is great with children.
Rachel is always extremely helpful and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone I know to be their Family Medicine doctor.
Dr. Rachel Torres was amazing! She helped me so much to understand how my recent hysterectomy had really changed my body and its responses to, er, intimacy. She came in and told me all about her personal and professional background and I felt like I was talking more to a friend or an aunt then a cold doctor. Recommend her highly! I walked out of her office with renewed sense of well-being.
She was fantastic as always!
She was a very happy person, great to be around! And very knowledgeable!
Dr. Torrez is thoroughly professional while being personal at the same time. She is always informative and pleasant. She also cares about her patients as people. This visit was for a routine physical and I was satisfied with the entire interaction.
The whole experience was awesome! I got there a bit early to do paperwork and they were able to see me before my appointment time. Dr. Torrez was friendly and sharp. I'd recommend her to anyone in the Ballard area.
Very quick, professional, and friendly. She has a no-nonsense attitude that I appreciate. I will be going back!
The lady is a champ. She takes the time and has the know-how. Terrific doctor.
Dr. Torrez has both professional competence and warm concern. She has seen several of my children and we love having a family doctor.
We stopped in for a flu shot. We were checked in quickly, promptly admitted, and shots were administered forthwith. We were in and out in no time. The experience was entirely satisfactory.
I really liked Dr. Torrez, she addressed my issue thoroughly and was very kind.
She didn't listen all that well (and kept jumping in to guess my answers to questions, often coming up with the wrong answers), but I knew what I wanted from the visit and she gave that to me with no problem.
Dr. Torrez was amazing. She answered all my questions and even used a little humor to make me feel more at ease. I would definitely recommend her.
She was thorough but efficient, and I felt like she really listened to what I was concerned about. Very much enjoyed my first appointment, which is not usually how I feel when leaving a doctor's office!
Dr Torrez has always been right on,witj her diagnosis. She has a great bedside manner. Always leave with a smile no matter how I feel going in to the office.
I absolutely loved Dr. Torrez! She was extreamly nice and straight forward . I didn't feel like I was being entarrogated , like most offices ! I really enjoyed my visit, and will absolutly go back!!!
Highly recommend her. I've been seeing her for almost three years and she has been helpful.
This was my second time seeing Dr. Torrez and both times she was quick and to the point while also being friendly, empathetic and personable. This is a rare and much appreciated combination of qualities. I definitely recommend her.
Rachel was wonderful as always. Diagnosis and course of action explained in her straightforward way then we had a chat and I was out the door. Classic Torrez.
Dr. Torrez was friendly, efficient and very competent. I had no wait time, felt relaxed during my exam and was not rushed at all. I felt comfortable discussing any issues I had with her. The staff was also welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend this office.
Dr. Torrez has been my doctor for years and I always appreciate her common sense and professionalism.
Dr. Torrez was very personable, energetic, and forward. She encouraged me to bring forth any issues and was very professional and courteous. She also have a recommendation for a specialist that was close to me to keep my drive-time to a minimum. Will continue to see her!
This doctor is among the best that there is available. Caring, thoughtful and thorough.
Very friendly, provides good advice, great medical care, timely and efficient, with good sense of humor. She is highly recommended by fellow medical professionals, as well! Would recommend her to anyone seeking a primary care physician!
Easy to talk with
I would recommended her. Very personable.
She was great! So easy to talk to, i got seen within minutes of my appt time, and I felt very comfortable talking to her. So happy to have found my new PCP
I love Dr Torrez, she is the best Dr that I have ever had.
Super, super friendly. Reception staff was jovial and light-hearted. I'm very excited to have found a local doctor that I can return to.
Dr Torrez is an excellent physician and has been a pleasure to work with
I will definitely see Dr. Torrez again. I felt very comfortable talking with her and she helped me with all my health issues.
Dr. Torres was great. She had a no nonsense approach and put me right at ease.
Dr. Torrez was intuitive and caring rather than dismissive as many docs I have seen are. She listens, is pleasant and doesn't rush you out of the office. Her staff as just as helpful and pleasant and make you feel at home on your first visit. I highly recommend Dr. Torrez.
I arrived a few minutes early and Dr. Torrez actually saw me just prior to my appointment time. The visit was great as usual. She is personable, open, honest and unusually transparent. I typically am not a fan of doctors (nothing personal to physicians, it is just a thing thing I have) but I really like Dr. Torrez. I've never had a visit to her that was anything less than excellent.
She was friendly, open, honest, and very easy to talk to. She made going to the doctor a positive & pleasurable experience.
She's an excellent doctor. She's attentive and remembers her patients, even if they're new. This office has a nice, small, community feel. You don't feel like a number there, or to her. She makes you feel confident in her treatment and that things will improve, whether it be an injury, emotional trouble, or illness. Also, very LGBT friendly. Cant speak more highly of her.
Dr Rachel is very quick and thinks rapidly. Sometimes I wonder if she is really processing all we talk about. However, in the years that I've been seeing her she has never missed even the tiniest detail or symptom I've mentioned. Even from previous visits! Dr Rachel is amazing!
Very helpful, kind & gave plenty of useful advice. Thank you for your time! :)
Excellent as always
Really nice and professional doctor!!
Very helpful and quick.
Dr. Torres is always very reassuring. She takes the time to really hear what has been going on.
Smart, fast, friendly and no-nonsense. Makes going to the doctor very easy!
Amazing PCP as always. :-)
Always loving, quick, with no hassles.
I always enjoy my time with Dr. Torrez. She never rushes and always listens to my concerns. She is very caring!
Dr Torrez is always a delight. She's friendly and welcoming, knowledgeable and professional while also being funny and lighthearted. It's comforting, which is really nice to have in a doctor. The office & professional elements have always run smoothly and efficiently for me as well--friendly staff, and I've never had any issues with wait times or billing or scheduling--everything runs smoothly, it seems.
Great partner feel to her patient relationship which is greatly appreciated.
I've been seeing Dr.Torrez since I moved to Seattle. She is a real family doctor and I love that.
Dr. Rachel Torrez is absolutely amazing at what she does and with me being a teenager, she is a person I know I can trust and confide in! I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a caring, personable and hilarious doctor who makes you one of her own.
Dr. Torrez and her staff are the best.
Great first visit with dr Torrez!
Rachel is great, like always
The staff was amazingly friendly, professional, & helpful. I was skeptical cause I just moved here from AZ a week ago & chose a doctor online, but I am very happy with my decision.
She was very friendly and helpful with my concerns. Thank you Dr. Torrez!
I Highly recommend Dr. T. She has a great bedside manner, truly cares about her patients & listens & answers your questions. She makes a great primary physician.
She is GREAT! I've been to about a dozen doctors in my lifetime, she is by far the best. She is funny, sweet, knowledgable, and took care of me and my son wonderfully. Speaking of my son, he has special needs but is capable of speaking to the general public. Many adults defer to me instead of asking him even the simplest of questions. She addresses him directly and actually listens to his replies, which is usually not the case even with doctors who are supposed to be evaluating him.
Great, she is very friendly and made me feel very comfortable! Would recommend.
Fast and friendly, no nonsense but totally approachable.
Excellent doctor with a warm manner, I feel happy confident taking my kids to her and seeing her myself
She's very nice, made me comfortable. I would recommend Dr. Torrez to anyone.
Amazing Doctor & staff! My appointment hadn't made it on the books but they got me in with only a 5 min wait. All- every single of my questions and concerns were answered. She is quick and to the point- loved it!!
Very welcoming and comfortable but also direct and honest. She referred me to a specialist in regard to a concern I had. I plan on keeping her as my doctor.
I like her. She's personable and competent. Good combination for a doctor.
It was my first visit with Dr. Torrez after moving to the Seattle area from Virginia. She was so great and friendly and made me feel very comfortable!
Dr. Torrez is down to earth and really listens - she helps you to feel comfortable and not rushed. Se is very easy to visit with and discuss any issues or questions you may have!
I always get in right on time, if not as soon as I walk in the door! She always spends an appropriate amount of time w/me & answers my questions. She is very pleasant & caring. The office is clean & the staff are friendly & nice.
I thought she was great. Very friendly and professional.
Dr. Torrez is simply great. Super friendly and helpful. I go in with complaints and they're easily explained and treated when necessary. The office staff is equally nice and there's never a wait.
Very down to earth, friendly, personal and professional. Made me feel very comfortable about what I needed.
She was GREAT!
She is always right in time (if not early!), compassionate, listens to me, includes me in decisions about my care & is cheerful. She was very easy to reach when I had a problem @ the pharmacy. I thought if have to wait hours for her to call back when the pharmacist had to call her, but she answered the call right away! The office staff is nice & professional & the office is clean & efficient.
Dr. Torrez was professional, kind, and very informative. She made me feel very comfortable, listening carefully to all of my concerns and providing thoughtful answers. And on top of all that, she is funny! It was like talking to an old friend I had known for many years. Highly recommended. I am happy with making Dr Torrez my new family doctor.
She was amazing! The best doctor I've been to. Really cared about me and my needs.
Very nice and comfortable..not intimidating at all..thank you for being so kind and helpful
She takes a personal interest in her patients. Always smiling.
She's spectacular. She's very kind while also being businesslike and scientific -- the perfect combo in a doctor. It's very clear to me that she's dedicated to helping me live a healthy, happy life, and that she's in it for the long run. My previous doctor in another city was always rushed, and my appointments felt like a series of one-offs, not parts of a lifelong relationship, and she didn't seem too concerned with me and my well-being (not that she was unkind or an bad doctor -- she wasn't). Dr. Torrez's approach is completely different, in all the best ways. She approached my questions and general checkup from a scientific perspective, while being compassionate and personable and thoughtful. I'm not just numbers on a chart or a boring old routine task to get out of the way. I'm in my late 20s now, and I'll be her patient for the long haul. I actually look forward to my annual physical (as much as such a thing's possible!).
I love Dr. Torrez, she is always smiling!
Great visit with Dr Torrez, easy appointment setting, friendly staff, friendly doc. Parking is a little tight, plan some extra time for that.
I got in early-barely even say down in the waiting room & she was in the room about 10 mins. B4 my app't. Time. She spent an adequate amount of time w/me, answered my questions & involved me in planning my care. She is very pleasant & caring.
Dr Torrez is personable, encouraging and knowledgeable. I always leave feeling a bit better than when I got there regardless of how sick I may be. She listens well, relates, and actually spends the necessary time with those in her care.
Great doc. Friendly and knowledgeable.
Dr. Torrez is a highly capable physician AND you can tell how invested she is in the health and happiness of her patients.
She was right on time, listened to me, included me in planning care & very empathetic.
Dr. Rachel Torrez is an amazing doctor with heart - she is a warming-heart, easily to communicate. She'd be bluntly with honest answers where you'd eventually feel so comfortable with any discussion with her. I have her for years since I lived close by, and now we live far away from her doctor office, but we won't change our doctor with Dr. Torrez. We'd drive almost an hour for any appointment with her, so that's how much we love her!
Rachel is always engaging and connected. She seems to really understand the worry of her patients, but uses her knowledge and skill to address worries instead of just catering to the patient needs. Don't get me wrong, she is very patient focused, but uses her knowledge to help you understand her assessment of the situation and next steps to balance out the patient perspective.
Dr. Torrez always makes me feel at ease and never acts annoyed at my many questions.
Dr. Torres is fast, friendly yet professional and obviously cares about her patient's health. I haveseen her twice and been impressed both times. I appreciate the speediness and her sense of hunit, as well as the sound medical advice and skills.
She's the best!
I had an appointment to check in on a cold I've had for 3+ weeks. Dr. Torrez was very fast and efficient but still managed to make me feel welcomed. Very friendly and I like that the practice is concerned with your overall well being and health, not just whatever you come in for. Awesome!
She is very empathetic & nice . She treats the whole person, mind & body.
Always a pleasure to see my doctor
She is warm, professional, kind and direct. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a respectful and compassionate doctor!
Love Dr. Torrez--she's great!
Very good doctor. Easy to talk to, she listens to you & includes you in your plan of care. She is always on time & the whole office staff is friendly & helpful.
She is excellent. Her sense of humor will put you at ease. She is a breath of fresh air in a time when modern medicine sometimes lacks humanity and humility. Highly recommended.
She is, awesome!
She is very nice and gets me in and out quickly!
Dr. Torrez was beyond fantastic- Beyond!!! My new doctor! I was seen right away and she was very informative and was cool and not a stick in the mud! Thanks doc!!
I've loved Dr. Torrez for a long time! She's fantastic.
I absolutely love going to Dr. Torrez. She really makes an effort to get to know you, and she is so friendly and personable. She listened to my issues carefully and provided great care. I highly recommend her!
Love Dr. Torrez. She listens and hears what you have to say. Best doctor I have ever had.
Dr. Torrez takes the time to listen to her patients--a great doctor!
She herself is super great! she's incredibly smart and nice!
Shes the absolute best GP. Super kind, outgoing, listens really well.
I thought she was very nice. She listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I got the impression she was in a bit of a hurry. But she was not rude at all.
Professional, helpful, and concerned with overall health and happiness. While I never like going to the doctor, seeing Rachel Torrez makes the whole thing better.
I have been seeing Dr. Torrez for years, and she's wonderful. I refer people to her all of the time.
Very friendly, helpful, and quick.
Very personable ... and seems like someone who know what she is doing. I am looking forward to the followup session
It was okay. There was a student in the room which made me very uncomfortable. She is very ethical, sweet, and strait forward, but I think we just had a hard time communicating.
I was 30 min late and she still saw me within 10 min of arriving. Such a great staff!
She was very compassionate and warm, highly recommend
What a great Dr. I will definately be going back to her as my primary Dr!
Dr. Torrez is so well organized and time managed to see patients on time and has her patients scheduled appropriately to be able to spend the time needed to diagnose and treat without that 'rushed' feeling. Having worked with doctors for over 30 years, it's refreshing to find a good, 'down to earth, Dr. Welby' type doctor. Thank you Dr. Torrez!
I was very impressed with Dr. Torrez. I like that she lives in the neighborhood that she practices in. She was very helpful in every way that I needed her to be. I came in for one thing, but had questions about a lot of other things. She didn't seem rushed at all, was very understanding and offered great advice.
I love her, I never want to go to anyone else
She was easy to talk to and very personable, and spent more time with me than is the norm these days. I especially liked her willingness to give me information in response to my arguments! No condescending attitude with her!
I appreciate that Dr. Torrez is honest and human. I feel like she explains things in a way that is helpful and kind. I've never felt so well informed and trustful of the advice being given.
Dr Torrez was amazing as usual, took her time talking to me and took concern in my overall health.
I've been seeing Rachel for the last 10 years. I would never see another family practitioner. She is straightforward, kind and knowledgeable. She listens and explains things clearly and in a manner I can understand. I also love her staff, Briton is my favorite.
Very pleasant and will be going back again.
Really great doctor, always prompt!!
She is very easy to talk to and includes body and mind in how to look at health. I always come away from a visit feeling cared about and with a good plan of care for my multiple health problems.
Dr. Torres is wonderful. She is a great listener and never makes me feel.rushed. Rachel has an awesome sense of humor and great empathy when appropriate. She is the best Dr. I have ever gone to!
Wonderful! Quick, efficient, knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Torres!
Dr. Torrez is fantastic! Personable, straightforward, and very easy to talk to. I had my first appointment with her today; she was thorough, knowledgeable, and took the time to really listen. I would definitely feel comfortable returning to her for future needs. Highly recommend!
It was my first visit and I was not there about any health issues. I was very comfortable with the doctor and the staff.
Dr. Torrez is the best doctor I've had. She got me before my appointment time, and spent at least a half an hour with me. She is very thorough and made me feel so comfortable. The office staff is friendly and they seem like a big family. I highly recommend Dr. Torrez to anyone in need of a new physician.
Overall, a great visit! I was called in before I had even completed my new patient paperwork. Friendly staff. No complaints!
It was a great visit. Rachel and her staff are very friendly. She has a very direct communication approach which I really appreciate. Even though I arrived 25 minutes early for my appointment I basically had no wait at all and was out of the office before my appointment was even scheduled to start.
She was great and very welcoming made the experience one of the easiest doctors visits ever
Rachel is, without a doubt, one of the finest MD's in Seattle. I highly recommend her to anyone ( and this comng from a middle age whote male! )
Dr. Torrez will make you feel comfortable, and is very caring.
Got me right in. Answered all my concerns. Office and exam room very clean and staff very friendly and professional.
I felt very comfortable and at ease. Glowing recommendation!
Dr Torrez is the best. She sat down and explained things to me about my herniated disc that was easy to understand. Gave me my options, and just overall felt better taken care of then with any other doc's I've seen.
She is a doctor that truly cares about her patients and takes the time to understand what you need.
Dr. Torrez genuinely cares about her patients. I am so happy I found her!!!
Dr Torres was very professional without being stuffy. She got me in and out quickly without making me feel rushed at all.
This was my first visit with Dr. Torrez, to establish a primary care. My visit was wonderful. Her staff was friendly and helpful from the desk to the medical assistant, and Dr. Torrez took the time to explain her philosophy of medicine and background. She made me feel incredibly comfortable the entire time I was there.
Absolutely love Dr. Torrez. She's always cheerful when I see her, and willing to work with her patients for their best healthcare.
The office staff was nice and quick about their business. Dr. Torrez was very friendly. As this was my first visit with her, she took the time to introduce herself, her practice, and her background, which I appreciated. She also took the time to get all the information about my background, lifestyle, medical history and concerns. She answered all my questions thoroughly and clearly (so much that I had no followup questions). I normally dread my yearly appointment, but it was downright pleasant and I'm glad I found her to be my doctor!
I like that Dr. Torrez is keenly interested in how you FEEL and doesn't gauge your health based on test results. She is always cheerful and upbeat and I appreciate that!
It's too bad I'm not sick more often
Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly doctor!
Great Doctor. Great news.
I don't normally like doctors or going to them, but Dr. Torrez was recommended very highly by several of my friends, so I had high hopes. She was absolutely amazing! She is a very welcoming, open person that absolutely made me feel comfortable right off. I will definitely continue to see her in the future.
Our whole family loves her!
She is efficient, yet personable. She takes the time to ask questions, listen and offer helpful feedback.
She is FABULOUS!! Knowledgable, great sense of humor, answers questions, takes her time. Highly recommended!
Caring and outgoing physician that I can tell will work with me for any conditions I need managed. Nice staff. Very prompt and efficient. It's so nice to not be resented for needing medical care.
Very affective visit, as always.
Wow. Great doctor. She made me feel so comfortable right away and it felt like she really cared about me and how I was feeling. All of her office staff was great too. Will definitely be back!
She was amazing! Nice meeting a doctor who can be helpful and a real person at the same time!
Excellent visit. My first. The staff were polite, professional and quick. Dr. Torres was the same with an excellent manner. I like the way she presented herself to me, agree with her philosophy of family practice, and I felt immediately comfortable. Shes my Dr. here in Seattle!!
She is very personable and you could tell she cared about me as a patient!
Best. Doctor. Ever. She cares, she listens, she explains in terms you understand, and she's funny. I drive from Bellevue because I couldn't imagine another doctor.
Rachel is so down to earth and smart. I love her because she understands what it's like to not be perfect and doesn't judge you for making health mistakes but works with you on a plan to help you feel and be better. I have recommended Rachel Torrez to lots of friends.
Wonderful. Enjoyed talking to her. Very personable. Looking forward to seeing her again.
The doctor was very informative, and upfront. I would recommend her, definitely.
Very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.
I am new to the area and was very nervous to find a Doctor. After looking around on the internet and reading reviews I found Dr. Torrez. I had my first appointment with her this morning and I am pleased to say I have found my Family Doctor. The staff is very nice and welcoming. Dr Torrez is a caring, compassionate, realistic, down to earth person and I really liked her and felt comfortable with her. I will recommed her to everyone I can.
I am so very glad I found her! No doctor has ever listened like she did, and my problem was very minor. She'll be my doc for a very long time to come.
Dr. Torrez was really great about making the visit more of a personalized friendly visit than a "what is your problem, ok this will fix it". I like that she is in to holistic care. She is a fast talker so the visit was really quickly paced...but I think she was just matching my style.
First impression was very good although i was surprised that she didn't perform a cursory physical exam
Fantastic doctor. She's the best!
We love Dr. Torrez!
She will not treat certain things (like removing a malfunctioning IUD) for religious reasons.
Office was friendly, Dr. Torrez was professional and answered all of my questions. She is very personable and comes across as genuine. If I were staying in the area, I would develop a long-term patient relationship with this office.
Incredibly friendly, professional, bright & helpful.
We love Dr. Torrez and her staff!
Dr Torrez is funny, friendly, efficient, caring, knowledgable, listening — everything one wants in a doctor.
Perfect! Dr. Torrez is knowledgable, pleasant, and so easy to talk to.
Dr. Torrez has been our family doctor for years. She is a fantastic doctor, knowledgeable, personable and empathetic. She is a straight talker too, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

She is an a wonderful doctor. Very knowledgeable and sensitive to your needs. I have never felt rushed. I wouldn't see anyone else.
I love Dr. Torrez and she answers my questions candidly and honestly. I know she has my best interests at heart and is willing to go the extra mile to take care of me and my needs.
Love her focus on partnering with her patients. She is also very good at communicating clearly. Awesome lady all around.
Dr. Torrez is incredible. She is outstanding and took the time to get to know me prior to addressing my medical concerns. She examines everything and really takes an interest in her patients to see if lifestyle factors influence the ailments. I was so taken by her. She is excellent. I can't say enough great things about her. She runs a tight office too. Always on-time and reliable. OUTSTANDING.
My favorite doctor ever. Down to earth, knowledgeable, fun, and funny!
Absolutely love this doctor!
Great Doc, great staff, relaxed atmoshphere, easy to talk with........what more do you want from your doc visit.
Dr. Torrez and her staff were all great - Highly recommended!
Dr. Torrez has been my primary doctor for many years. She is excellent. She listens, gives good advice, has a sense of humor and it is very easy to talk with her. Her office staff is excellent.
nice person. Seems to know her stuff. Good experience.
It was pleasant. Dr. Torrez was kind and explained her diagnosis well.
Not best reason to go see a doctor, but she made me feel comfortable and at home. She is my new doctor and I will recommend her to everyone. Very friendly, professional, and knowledgable. Amazed how quick I was seen and on my way. I feel so much better.
Loved her! She addressed my concerns immediately. Best doctor I have seen in years.
She is excellent ! Caring and down to earth. She is a exceptional physician, and I should know as I have been a nurse for 30 years and worked with 100's of doctors. She is in the top 1%!!!!!!!!
Dr. Rachel and her staff are nothing less than awesome. I would, and do, recommend her highly!
Dr. Torrez is one of the best docs I've ever had: very personable and always spends time to answer all my questions.
This was our first meeting and she was very thoughtful about my questions asked and had a very kind manner. I love the location and will definitely be making her my primary care doc.
I LOVE HER. She is great. I have been seeing her forever. She's quick, but friendly. The perfect balance of everything.
The staff was very nice and professional and Dr. Torrez was extremely friendly and easy to talk to!
Dr. Torres was easy to talk to and I felt comfortable asking questions about my health.
She's always ready to help and willing to work with you and your home life to make everything better. She is straight forward and gives you all of the options efficiently, quickly, and always with a cheerful disposition and a positive outlook. And best of all, she remembers who YOU are, not just what your medical record says.
Dr. Torrez was pleasent and I was very happy she as able to see me on such short notice. My only complaint would be it felt like she was rushed and my appointment felt hurried through but other than that I will be comming back to see her as my regular doctor.
I love Doctor Torrez! My family has been patients of hers for almost 5 years!
Dr. Torrez was very friendly and sincere. I never felt rushed and had very little wait time before getting to see her. I really get nervous meeting new people/doctors and her personality helped me feel at ease.
I had a great first visit with my new doctor!
Dr. Torrez is such a good-natured, cheerful, and down-to-earth doctor. She gives great advice, listens well, and makes sure you leave with a smile.
She really listened to me and I felt like she wasn't in a hurry like most doctors are. She made me feel comfortable right away. Very charismatic and honest.
I recently moved here from PA, and was a little hesitant to find a new doctor after 30 years! Rachel is so great, I couldn't have chosen a better lady to watch after my health :)
She's very friendly person and knowledgeable professional. I would definitely recommend her to others!
Dr. Torrez is, by far, one of the most amazing medical professionals with whom I've had the privilege of receiving care. She is courteous, respectful, and genuinely cares about your wellbeing. My search for a primary care physician concluded with her!
This was my first appointment and I was very pleased with everything. In fact, Dr. Torrez was able to immediately solve several problems for me that my previous doctor could not (or would not). I am looking forward to having Dr. Torrez as my primary health care physician and am going to recommend her to my wife and friends, as well. Thank you for a wonderful experience, doc.
Dr. Torrez is not judgmental, open to the patient's personal goals and wishes and very up-beat within her business persona. If I had to use one word to describe my feeling after my appointment: "Refreshed"
Dr. Torrez took the time to ask about me, my family and my concerns. I am setting up an appointment for my husband with her and eventually my adolescent daughters. I look forward to a good relationship with her.
Fabulous. I had low expectations going in as it was a last minute unreferred booking off of the internet but she was the BEST EVER and I will totally use her as my GP going forward. (I just relocated to Seattle from out of state.)
