"Thank you Dr. Torres for all of your aid & assistance"

Dr. Torres diagnosed my RA in 2016 and has treated me ever since. She is professional, caring and very interested in her patient's progress, and so is her staff. I will miss her care since I have moved to Ocala, FL. Thank you Dr. Torres for all of your aid and assistance in getting the medical I needed so that my transition into this "disease" was easy.

"Responsible, compassionate & humble"

Dr. Torres is a excellent doctor. She is the best, has commitment with the patient, responsible, compassionate and humble. Evaluates the patient always like it was the first day of appointment. Like listen the patient without interruption and without hurry. The only bad is the patient need wait for evaluate more than 1 - 2hrs. But I wait because I don't found a professional doctor like she. God bless her.

"Excellent care in a very caring fashion."

One can find a good physician, one can find a caring physician. It's difficult to find both in one entity. Dr. Torres fits the role perfectly as does her staff. They give excellent care in a very caring fashion.

"You feel like you're the only patient she has"

I started going to Dr. Torres in 1999. I hated leaving my rheumatologist in Michigan and told my husband that staying in Florida would depend on the care I received down here. Fortunately, I found Dr. Torres, who was recommended to me by the Cleveland Clinic and my rheumatologist in Michigan.. When I speak of Dr. Torres, I always say that you can 1) find a good, knowledgeable physician; or 2) you can find a caring physician. However, with Dr. Torres and her entire staff, you get both with one swoop. She is so good in her understanding and treatment of the rheumatoid and fibromyalgia. When you're receiving her care, you feel like you're the only patient she has or is concerned about at that moment in time. I've seen a lot of doctors over the years and she is a very special lady. I'm already concerned and worrying about the day she retires. I've never been able to get that same caliber of care and treatment!... Read More +

"You are truly a great doctor!"

Dr. Torres is an awesome doctor. I have been seeing her for years. She always takes the time to really talk to me to find out how I'm doing. She was very helpful when it came to me getting my social security disability approved. Thank you Dr. Torres, you are truly a great doctor!
