I have been going to Dr. De La Torre, M.D. for several years and my whole family goes there. I find him to be one of the truly caring doctors in Las Vegas. As for these comments about bad staff .....it is difficult to find good people who want to work and who are going to have positive attitudes. This has nothing to do with the doctor and I know he make changes if that happens to be the case. Not everyone in that office is a family member I believe there is only one family member working there. The rest are hired employees. The quality of Dr. D himself Is by far one of the best doctors I have been to in Las Vegas. He is not aggressive with over treating a patient. He listens and explains. There may be a wait when you go there but that's because he is taking time with each person answering your questions fully. If you are looking for a place that's fast i.e. the Supercuts of medicine then don't go to this place but if you want to see a doctor who cares about his patients and this is the place. He does not over treat a patient. He does not add the insurance codes to make extra money. He is truly an honest man. He listens and explains. There may be a wait when you go there but that's because he is taking time with each person answering your questions fully. If you are looking for a place that's fast i.e. the Supercuts of medicine then don't go to this place. When my mother was alive he took exceptional care of her was kind caring and she loved him. She was always nervous about going to the doctor but she likes going there.

A REALLY GOOD DOCTOR AND STAFFThe Doctor is superb! Very knowledgeable, professional, caring, compassionate, great bedside manner. The front office staff is very nice, always smiling and courteous. I brought my 90 year father to Dr. De La Torre and he was very kind, patient and explained everything-no rush. A very experienced doctor. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any GI problems to anybody. A very gentle and caring man.
Tips & Advices
A gastroenterology clinic is a facility that provides a wide range of gastroenterological services. These services are typically geared toward the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect the liver, digestive tract, stomach, duodenum, gallbladder, biliary tract, pancreas, colon, and small intestine. Gastroenterology clinics also offer nutritional support for many issues that impact the digestive tract.
The national average for a new-patient office visit to a gastroenterologist is $428. However, the cost for a gastroenterologist visit can vary quite significantly, and it is dependent on the services that will be performed during the consultation. Many gastroenterologists accept insurance and Medicaid, and payments can be made using cash, credit cards, or debit cards.
The length of time required for a gastroenterologist appointment depends on the condition that is being treated. If this is your first visit, you can expect the appointment to last 30 to 60 minutes, and the gastroenterologist will use this time to gather detailed medical information about your current problems and past medical history. For returning clients, appointments typically run a bit shorter.
A colonoscopy may be performed to help your gastroenterologist diagnose causes of intestinal problems such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, chronic constipation, and chronic diarrhea. A colonoscopy is also used to screen patients from colon cancer, and it's often recommended that patients who are 50 and older have one done every 10 years. Your gastroenterologist might also use a colonoscopy to identify the presence of polyps.
A colonoscopy is a test that enables gastroenterologists to take a close look at the inner lining of your rectum and colon. With this test, a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope is inserted into the anus. This tube has a light and a camera attached, and it gives doctors the chance to capture photos or video of your colon.
