Patient Testimonial

Amazing experience!

by M.M

Dr. Torres is very professional and an excellent ENT. If you live in Miami area this is the Dr. you need to see if you are dealing with sinusitis. I had a surgery performed by Dr. Torres with excellent results. His team keeps in touch with you all the time. They are great at Front Desk and also preparing your surgery. Post op follow up was perfect. This is exactly what I needed to to solve my sinusitis problems. I can highly recommend Dr. Julio Torres and his office!
