Dr. Torre's web site was created to provide our patients, their families and other medical professionals with important information. Web links to additional sites offer state of the art information on allergies, asthma, (scuba) diving medicine, help with prescription medications and even a video game for teens and older children to improve their asthma knowledge. New patient forms and copies of our most common handouts are downloadable as well.
Please navigate the site using the menu to the left.
Flu shots are in for the 2023-2024 Season. The CDC advises all persons aged 6 months and above should receive influenza vaccine and the high dose flu vaccine is now recommended for those over 65.
Because the flu season will again coincide with the presence of COVID-19 in the population, the CDC says that vaccination will reduce the presence of symptoms that might be confused with the pandemic disease and could also lower demands on the country's healthcare system. Call to make an appointment.
If you are over 19 and have asthma or other chronic respiratory issue, a Pneumococcal Vaccine is also recommended.
