Dr Torres and his nurse were professional and compassionate at the same time. The explanations concerning the procedures and results of the procedures exact. Also, performed a endoscopy at Lovelace, and, again the Dr Torres and Lovelace's staff were professional and understanding.

Dr Torres was extremely good at informing me about my rare and dangerous diagnosis. He took his time and answered my questions. His experience has helped to put me somewhat at ease. I’m very happy that I’m his patient
