About Dr. Torres

Philosophy of care

Every patient comes in with their own unique story and background. I try to incorporate this into their treatment plan and decision making. Individualized, personal, and tailored encounters are what I strive to achieve each and every day. My goal is to make patients feel comfortable and have them understand their disease process at the end of the clinic visit.

Why I entered medicine

My love for medicine started at a very early age. As a young child, my mother would read me stories about medical missionaries. I would find it enthralling and fascinating how these doctors could reach out to patients in remote areas of the world. Ever since then my career path was set.

During medical school I had an opportunity to participate in a medical mission trip in Papua New Guinea. We dealt with many machete injuries to the hand. It was very satisfying to see the patient’s function and livelihood restored when these injuries were repaired. That’s when I knew I would become a hand surgeon.

Community involvement

I’m very fond of community service and charitable organizations. I was recently involved with the Free Flu Vaccine clinic here in Allentown. I have been previously involved with animal shelter fundraising, chamber of commerce volunteering, Human Rights Campaign fundraising, Mardi Gras Krewe active membership, community-wide sports physical fair volunteer, international mission trips, and many more.

Personal interests

I’m an avid sports fanatic. Houston Astros are my current favorite professional team. I also enjoy musical theatre shows, cooking, traveling, classical music (piano and choral pieces) and spending time with my friends and family.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
