Patient Reviews

  • “If you're looking for an Orthopedic Surgeon, look no further, Dr. Brian Torpey is simply the best. I cannot say enough about Dr. Torpey and his skillful, compassionate, and resourceful mindset. He is extremely intelligent, persistent, and considerate. His calm demeanor, detailed explanations, and bedside manners are superior. I never once felt the sense of discouragement in his voice. His staff is always courteous, kind, and attentive too, especially (but not limited to) LeeAnn, Janis & Maryanne. I experienced a serious injury to my shoulder, and after extensive surgery & treatment by Dr. Torpey, I'm on the road to recovery. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dr. Brian Torpey to anyone who needs an Orthopedic Surgeon. Thank you, Dr. Torpey.”
