He is proud to join such a well-established group that has provided great care to area for years. “I am very fortunate to be afforded the ability to be a part of practice where I can treat the general Otolaryngology needs of both children and adults; and be a part of unique multi-disciplinary, prospective tumor clinic where we treat the most complex patients who have head and neck cancer.”

 

In his free time, Dr. Tortorich enjoys spending time with his wife- Melissa, two sons- Luke and Daniel, and his Hungarian Vizsla- Quinzy. His hobbies include good food, sports, fishing, and doing anything outside with his family.
