Dr. L.A. Torres Jr., a native Texan and Internal Medicine physician in Plano, Texas, believes in taking care of his patients needs by utilizing a comprehensive approach that provides for enduring health care for adults. He was taught to treat the ‘whole’ patient and has applied that philosophy to his practice for over 20 years, significantly reducing the fragmentation of health care services to his patients.
In addition to the science behind his medical training and as a Fellow in the American College of Physicians, Dr. Torres also employs active listening with each patient interaction. It is through active listening that Dr. Torres is able to find clues as to illness or future illness. He probes each patient story and unique history to find the right solution for their concerns and helps them reach their individual goals for a healthier, happier life.
