I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Todd and his Staff at the Skin Cancer Center Northern Virginia. I was treated with respect and my comfort was foremost in their action with me. Dr. Todd successfully removed a skin cancer growth I had using the MOHS process and he was professional, friendly and attentive. His Staff is amazing including the call 1 week before and 1 day after the process. They are so experienced and talented that I have actually NOT had any pain - even when Dr. Todd was dulling the area before the removal. You will be in good hands with this professional group.
From the time you walk through the door you feel like you "coming home". The layout of the entrance is so warm and friendly it makes feel good even before you say hello to the receptionist. Everyone makes you feel like your are the only one in the clinic. All the team is so informative giving you toms of information so you feel comfortable about the procedure. Dr. Todd is a very good communicator as well as a terrific surgeon. I was kept completely abreast of every part of the procedure step by step with no surprises and no worries. Usually I worry a lot, but not here. If you need removal of skin cancer, this is the first place you should go !!
Our entire family have been extremely pleased with Dr. Todd and his staff.
I have had 4 Mohs surgeries on my face and head now, all by Dr Todd. I find him to be an exceptional surgeon and his entire staff to be outstanding! Everyone there couldn't be nicer to you, the patient. I find it very refreshing in today's world that Dr Todd's staff go out of their way to assist, comfort and follow-up with the patient! Highly recommended. If you need a Mohs surgery - go to Dr Todd.
I found the staff at Dr. Todd's very friendly and warm (and understanding when I was stuck in traffic and late for my appointment.) The experience was very positive; I even got to select the music in the procedure room! I was referred to Dr. Todd by a friend who had a similar medical concern and a similar positive experience. I would also like to specifically mention the medical assistant in the office who helped me. She was outgoing and made me feel comfortable throughout the experience.
It is a pleasure to find a group of professionals that from the time you walk into the office the entire staff is warm, friendly, caring , helpful and most professional in all matters, from the top Dr. Todd to the receiptionist. I would highly recommend Dr. Todd.
Dr Todd and staff were amazing people! They are so professional in every aspect of care! We felt very welcomed, informed every step of the way, very patient staff and we appreciated their wonderful care ! We recommend Dr Todd to everyone!
Michael Todd is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He is kind and caring and explained everything to me. I felt like I was in good hands. His staff and nurses were very caring also. I have nothing to complain about and I was very happy with the results.
I was very impressed from the beginning to end of the whole experience.
Given that is was a surgical procedure (Mohs), it was actually enjoyable. The nicest physician and support team I have ever encountered. Really a cheerful and friendly group of people from the receptionist at the front desk to the physician.
Excellent service; prompt and courteous staff eager to provide information and advice. Would recommend this organization to anyone who needs this type of medical procedure.
My mother was a patient of Dr. Todd for Mohs surgery. The entire staff was excellent, professional, attentive and caring. The surgery was pain free and the recovery non-eventful. We recommend Dr. Todd without reservation.
Dr. Todd performed a procedure on my very elderly, and quite nervous, mother this past week. Everything went just beautifully, way beyond my expectations. The staff and nurses were very, very courteous, and the waiting area was spacious and inviting. I would recommend him to everyone.
Everything about Dr. Todd and staff is a positive. I couldn't be more satisfied.
We were referred by our doctor and even though we had to travel about 50 miles it was worth the trip. Never have I been more assured of quality care, diagnosis and after care by any physician. The staff exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend consulting with Dr Todd before seeing any other skin cancer specialist
My experience was professional, courteous, pleasant, knowledgeable, caring, gentle, prompt, respectful and expert care. Thanks!
The entire staff was very kind, helpful and thorough. Overall great experience
Dr. Todd and his staff are superb. They take their time with patients and answer all questions. They follow up and do everything possible to make you comfortable. If needed they help you to get an appointment with other doctors when you made need radiation or other help. Highly recommend Dr. Todd and his assistant Mike. He saved my life with his superb knowledge.
Dr Todd is excellent and so are the staff very professional thank you.
Having had Dr. Todd perform three 3 MOHS surgeries on my face over the in the past five years I highly recommend him and his most professional staff. And I am still cute as a button (for 73).
When it comes to skin cancer surgery, Dr. Michael Todd is my favorite doctor/surgeon! He has successfully removed several of my skin cancers and I can highly recommend him as a very skilled, compassionate surgeon. His staff is equally friendly, professional and accommodating.
I guess it is not appropriate to say my surgical experience was a wonderful time, but it was certainly as good an experience as anyone could have wished, given the circumstances. The staff was knowledgeable and courteous, the doctor was knowledgeable, informative and VERY GOOD. The procedure went flawlessly and I was in and out without delay. I would definitely recommend Dr Todd to anyone needing MOHS surgery.
I waited WAY too long before mustering the courage to see someone about a growth on my shoulder. I thank God for finding Dr. Todd. I was apprehensive at my first visit, but left after the biopsy knowing I was in good hands no matter what the outcome. His style is calm, gentle, and thorough - he sets the tone for his entire staff and practice. Every aspect of Dr. Todd's practice is superb. The reception area is lovely and tranquil, my average wait time is about 10 minutes! His staff is highly professional and credentialed, but never distracted or aloof. They are all about making sure you're comfortable, and understand your diagnosis, procedure, and after care completely. Simply the best.
I am now one-week post surgery - MOHS procedure for removal of a basel cell carcinoma on the tip of my nose. Dr. Todd did a fantastic job and it looks like my scar will fade and not be noticeable when it fully heals. All his staff were very friendly and put me as ease. Very nice office and waiting areas. Dr. Todd took the time to explain what he was going to do. Great follow-up post op - a call that night and another one at 24 hours. Thank you!
From the first encounter with the ladies at the front desk to departure time it was superb experience. Everyone was courteous, caring and professional. Dr. Todd is attentive to every detail. The surgical procedure was accomplished in a warm and spotless surgical suite. Well done. After the procedure while waiting for the analysis you will be taken to a lovely room complete with tasty treats and beverages. My procedure did not require further tissue removal so off I went to have the wounds sutured. Done again with the upmost attention to every aspect. Jenna bandaged the wounds with skill and kindness. Lastly you will be provided with all that is necessary to deal with the surgical wounds at home. A marvelous experience and first rate. Many thanks to all.
The one word that immediately comes to mind is "outstanding". At 69 years of age, I thought I'd seen a lot of very good doctors and practices but I must say that Dr. Todd and his entire staff at the Skin Cancer Center of Northern Virginia rate very near the top of my list. Dr. Todd and his staff were very patient about explaining the procedure and projected an air of confidence in every facet of my treatment. Without exception they were thoughtful and considerate at every turn. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Todd and his staff to anyone needing care.
I am a patient of Dr. Todd and just want to say how pleased I am with him, his staff and his surgical center. The staff is friendly, kind and very attentive. He did my mohs surgery and was great. I had a small skin lession after the surgery and had it removed with no extra cost. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Todd and his staff were great. From the minute you walk in his medical office until you leave you receive the highest professional care. I would highly recommend Dr. Todd!
The nurse, Jenna, was exceptional, very friendly and put me at ease. Dr. Todd was very upbeat and talkative. He made me feel comfortable and answered any questions I had about the procedure.
I did my initial visit to Dr. Todd's well appointed office this morning. I can't recall such a well decorated/warm office environment before. The office staff was super friendly, and Dr. Todd and his nurse, Jenna, were totally the same. I found Dr. Todd to be as excellent in expertise as the physician who referred me to him. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Todd to anyone in need of such services.
I was referrred to Dr. Todd by my dermatologist . Her choice could not have been any better, the Dr,his P.A. and all his staff were fantastic. They all made me feel so comfortable. After having the Mohs surgery done later that afternoon and the following morning I was called to see how I was doing. I have had many different procedures done to remove cancer and have never received a courtesy call.
I was referred to Dr. Todd, by my local dermatologist, to have a Mohs surgery procedure done. Of course, I was apprehensive since I had never had the procedure before. From the minute I entered his beautiful office, I was treated with the utmost care. My husband was with me, and they fully explained the procedure and what to expect with both of us. They have a private waiting room, well stocked with goodies, where you wait between surgeries. Jennifer, the nurse, was so compassionate and had such a soothing manner. She called me the next day to make sure I was okay. I haven't had that happen in a very long time. Dr. Todd did a great job, and I appreciate his expertise and great bedside manner. The entire staff made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed from the time I entered their office, until the time I left. I thank them all for their patience and kindness.
I have had two successful MOHs treatments by Dr. Todd. In each instance, the professionalism and courtesy shown by Dr. Todd and his staff has been outstanding. It is no fun being operated on, but Dr. Todd and his staff ensure that the experience is as comfortable and un-threatening as possible. The attention and care provided are as good as it gets. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Todd and the Cancer Center of Northern Virginia .
Being told that you have cancer, of any kind, is scary. Having surgery to remove cancer is also scary. I had three Mohs surgeries over the course of three weeks - on my nose, lip and above my lip. I was worried that I would have terrible looking scars and that the cancer would not all be removed. I was referred to Dr. Todd; he not only removed all of my skin cancer in the most thorough fashion, he explained every step he was taking, asked my opinion and honored my concerns, and was the kindest specialist I have ever dealt with. I have already recommended him to several friends and family members. He is very good at what he does and is a very genuine and caring man.
The personal and procedural abilities of the entire staff is outstanding. The four stars I selected for all seven criteria defines the quality of care I received.
If I said I had a minor skin surgery yesterday and it was a terrific experience you probably wouldn't believe me! But I did and it was!!! Dr. Todd and his entire staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and cared for for the moment you walk in the door. I was most worried about the needle from the local anesthetic hurting. I asked Dr Todd how much it would hurt . He said not much...I was doubtful. It did not hurt! The second thing that stands out is Michelle the nurse putting my earrings back on for me after the procedure. It was such a kind gesture.
I just had my 1st visit with Dr. Todd for surgery for a basal cell removal on my forehead. The entire staff is great, knowledgable, capable and very personable. The surgery was timely, quick, painless and well explained before hand and after. I like that they gave me all the bandages, etc I would need for my recovery, rather than needing to go to the store after surgery. I also liked they had a wi-fi in the offcie for patient use also. The stitching looks great and overall I could not bre more pleased.
Dr. Todd and his entire staff are the most kind, caring, and efficient medical professionals I have had the pleasure of experiencing. Dr. Todd is candid with me, always answering any question I may have, and I trust his wisdom and as well as his medical talent. The staff are always reassuring and follow-up with me after every visit, and make me feel completely comfortable during every visit. I highly recommend Dr. Todd and his wonderful staff.
My local dermatologist recommended Dr Todd for Mohs surgery for a facial and chest wall skin cancer. My initial contact was with Lynda, whose delightful British ways put me at ease. She was able to direct me to the sources for the questions that I had on the need for preauthorization and codes needed for insurance coverage. The patient history, practice brochure and "what to expect " information was sent promptly and arived at my home in plenty of time to allow me to familiarize myself with what was about to happen. Checking in was a breeze and Lynda was just as pleasant in person as on the phone. Before I had a chance to settle in and crack open my book, Nurse Virginia called me back into the procedure area. Even though I am an RN and had done my homework, she explained the procedure completely and asked if I had any questions. She then allowed me to select my choice of music to listen to as I waited for Dr Todd. It was perfect...I had about a 10 minute wait and the music definitely soothed my nervousness. ( I wondered if there was a deliberate 10 minute wait time so that the music therapy would have its calming effect. note: we use music therapy at the hospital where I work). Dr Todd presented himself in a very friendly yet professional manner and introduced me to Jackie, the RN who would assist him. As I had originally made an appointment for the cancer on my chest and my facial biopsy was only resulted the day before this appointment, we discussed the pro and cons of which to remove today and how they related to my work and plans for the coming month. Dr Todd showed a great interest and accomodation for my personal/professional concerns and we decided to proceed with the facial surgery. The procedure itself was much less bothersome than a dental visit and the music contiued to sooth my nerves. After the prodedure Jackie reviewed what to expect next and allowed me the choice of remaining in the procedure suite or going to the lovely picture windowed lounge where I ate the lunch I had brought and availed myself of a complimentary drink and snack provided by the practice. I also found a wonderful magazine that I had never read but had heard about so I did not even crack the book I brought. Most fortunately, I did not have to repeat the Mohs and was stitched up by the delightful PA, Michael, who it turns out went to college near where my youngest daughter did. Jackie did a very thorough review of the post operative expectations, dressing changes and contact numbers for questions or concerns and packed me off with a complete dressing change kit. All in all, it was the most delightful office visit, I have had in 40 years of nursing. I am a trained Language of Caring Facilitator at my hospital and I just have to give this practice 5 stars, not just 4!
From the moment you walk in you are greeted by Lynda, a friendly and helpful receptionist. Dr. Todd was excellent, friendly, professional, and knowledgable. The nurses are wonderful. My nurse was Virginia, she is amazing, making the procedure easy. Would recommend this office for any one needing skin cancer treatment.
I love Dr. Todd, his associates and staff! They are always friendly, prompt and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Todd to anyone who has questions or issues with their skin.
Dr. Todd listens and educate his patients, staff are friendly and efficient and quick to attend to you.
Lovely office the staff are very friendly and helpful wish all offices were like this one.
Everything I can say about Dr. Todd is positive. He was professional but caring, explained the procedure without going into too much detail (depth of cut, how he does the sutures, etc,)and without condescension, considerate of my anxiety. Staff was excellent and willing to be hand holders; went out of their way to be helpful. My two family doctors, along w/family members, commented on how great the area looks - can't even tell. Refer him to anyone.
Dr. Todd is very professional. He has a great bedside manner and spends whatever time is needed to make sure you understand. The appointment was easy to make and as a patient I was never kept waiting an unexceptable amount of time. His staff was kind and very accomodating.
