Part of a Knowledgeable and Compassionate Melanoma Team

Dr. Venna and the entire Inova Melanoma team are wonderful people who take melanoma as seriously as their patients. They are both very kind, gentle, patient, and compassionate individuals whose knowledge is on the very cutting edge of research. Melanoma isn't a disease with which people can dink around. The Inova melanoma team offers world-class care, and most importantly, they manage to deliver it in a timely fashion to those whose medical needs are rather urgent. My melanoma went undetected by two different physicians local to me (one of them a dermatologist), until the ugly lump appearing like a blood blister was finally removed by my PCP. When the lab came back with a rather ugly diagnosis, we were all horrified. After receiving a needed WAE and SNB locally (from a very good surgeon), the search was on for a melanoma clinic who could handle my case competently. That search led us to Inova. There are other melanoma clinics equally good, of course, but they are few and far between. Inova is our closest center, and we must travel a few hours to get there. Dr. Venna truly does take the time to go over every freckle and mole on my body, making his dermatological exams much more thorough than I've received before. Beyond that, he sets aside all the time the patient needs to discuss any and all questions. He is unusually patient in this regard. I have exactly the same thing to say about his partner, Dr. Jang (oncologist). I also have to say that I like Dr. Venna personally. He has a kind and assuring way with his patients, and I always leave his office feeling positive about my care and my future. I feel I am in very good hands at Inova, and I am grateful to be under the compassionate care of the entire team. PS the drop-down item for selecting the wait-time at the office was not working, so I'll mention here that with our 3-hr drives to the clinic, which can sometimes take as long as 4+ hours (depending on traffic), we're never quite sure when we will arrive there. We always come early, and they almost always whisk us into the back rooms within the time it takes us to brew a hot chocolate in the machine in their waiting room.

Exquisite doctor and person!

I am so impressed by Dr. Venna. He was incredibly kind, considerate, and compassionate. He took the time to answer questions, help me get all of my medical records together, coordinate with other doctors, and really listen to my medical history and ask the right questions to make the best diagnosis. He also took the time to follow up with me to make sure that I and my husband understood my prognosis (I can tend to overworry at times). Having melanoma is a scary thing, but I am incredibly grateful for Dr. Venna for making this process better.

What a wonderful and caring doctor. I don't think I have ever met a doctor without a hint of arrogance but Dr. Venna is the exception. He's knowledgable but also very kind. I feel very lucky to have him caring for me at such a confusing and difficult time, he made it so much more bearable. I asked him about a million questions and he answered every single one carefully and thoroughly. Thank you Dr. Venna, you are one of the good guys!!!

Four stars-great doctor!

Dr. Venna is director of the Melanoma Center at Washington Hospital's Cancer Institute in Washington, DC. He is very knowledgeable, skilled, and caring and explains things clearly to patients. His follow-up care is also excellent. The nursing and administrative staff at Washington Hospital were also wonderful. I am very pleased with the level of care I received there.
