excellent surgeon

Dr. De La Torre is extremely kind in how he interacts with my child and is giving of his time in that he talks with us as a family regarding our child's condition and ongoing needs. Also, he explains this so that we all are understanding and comfortable with his ongoing care. Excellent provider!!!!

Dr. De la Torre and his nurse Kim spent a lot of time with me discussing my situation. They were very thorough and engaged me in conversation that put me at ease.

This doctor and nurse team are answers to our 18 year prayer! They are both the best team of medical professionals we have ever experienced (and we've experienced a lot). We are extremely fortunate to have them in the Pittsburgh area.
