HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. BRYAN TOWNSEND

After going to my Dermatologist and finding that I had Basal Cell Carcinoma, my dermatologist recommended that I have Mohs surgery because the cancer spots were in places where a woman does not want big scars. The skin cancer spots were on my forehead, side of my face and on my chest. On my first consultation visit to Dr. Townsend, I had a list of questions. Dr. Townsend explained clearly each step of the Mohs procedure and had answered most of the questions on my list without me having to ask him. He took all the time needed to thoroughly explain everything. He explained each step when he was doing surgery and he was very precise and caring during the surgery. He had a positive and caring attitude through out all my visits with him. Dr. Townsend's front desk staff and nurses were all very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Townsend.

Outstanding Doctor

I have been exposed to many doctors and Dr. Townsend exceeds any expectations that I ever had. He is very skilled, conscious of patients reaction to the procedure he is performing. He continually ask if you are feeling any discomfort or pain. His staff has been with him for several years and they are very professional, courteous and attentive. If you have to go to doctor, Dr. Townsend would be a tough act to follow.

Update to the last review:Bryan Townsend was on vacation and he followed up on my MOHS surgery promptly when he got back into the office. This physician is worth your while and most assuredly a MOHS patient could do worse. I recommend him. The staff was just afraid to tell me anything without his review of my nose following the stitches coming out.

Two Stars

The stitches in my nose came out after MOHS surgery. I went in for care and the doctor was unavailable that day. (He was apparently not in the office). I was distraught and turned into a drama queen which his staff didn't care for, and as a result I feel like I was let down by this practice. Caveat emptor here if something doesn't go as planned. As of this writing, I still don't know if any follow up to my surgery will be held.
