The Dr was very thorough, and explained it in ways that I would understand my sons issues and condition.

We are so glad to have ever gone to see Dr. De La Torre. Although the treatment plan has been difficult for my son, we are blessed that his constipation problems are now manageable and his quality of life has improved greatly.

Very friendly staff. Dr was reassuring to a mom who's at her wits end.

We were 15 minutes late to the clinic because we were in X-ray beforehand. After waiting nearly 40 minutes in X-ray, we waited nearly 2 hours to see the doctor. My son is still recovering from surgery and was totally exhausted, hungry, and thirsty by the time we saw the doctor. This resulted in him having a tantrum during the visit and made it very difficult to have an effective conversation. The wait time should be provided during check-in. If I had know it was going to be two hours, I would have taken him for lunch or kept him busy elsewhere for a period of time.

The wait was worth it he was very interested and concerned.
