Dr. Trad is the most sincere, attentive, understanding, knowledgeable, compassionate and kind medical professional I have ever known. He truly cares for his patients, and he is remarkably talented in his field of expertise. I am extremely grateful for his recent care before, during and after my gastric surgery. I can't thank Dr. Trad enough for helping me through a difficult series of procedures and for giving me a new lease on life. Very kind regards.

Dr. Trad and his PA, Paul, are unbelievable. It's not often that you find a doctor/PA that you feel truly care about you as person, but these providers do. I highly recommend Dr. Trad and his entire practice.

Yes he is great! In Dec. of 2014 I met Dr. Trad. I had a severe case of Diverticulitis and was hospitalized with an infection. I knew nothing of this and was assigned Dr. Trad. Sent home with 3 weeks of IV's to clear infection as it had spread to my whole body. Finally I was operated on and lost 13 inches of my colon. I was scared and in tears. I was in the hospitalized for over a week through Dr. Trad and Paul's care, I recovered well and had a calm, pleasant, stay in Reston Hospital.

Undergoing surgery is never pleasant, but Dr. Trad, and his team, Paul Marino and Allison Barnett, helped make my surgery as easy and effective as possible. All my questions were answered and I never felt rushed. I was also given printed info explaining my procedure and what to expect before and after. Their expertise was never in doubt, but I also felt their warmth and concern. They genuinely care about their patients and do everything possible to ensure a successful and gratifying outcome.

Dr. Trad and his staff (Paul, Allison and Linnea) changed my life (and that of my wife), as we both underwent gastric sleeve surgery. Their support in preparing us for the surgery, as well as helping us thru the surgical process and recovery period was truly world class! Highly recommend you contact them if you are thinking about weight loss surgery.

Dr. Trad and his team (specifically his PA, Paul Marino) are beyond exceptional; because of their diligence and superior abilities, I finally have my life back. They truly care about fully understanding your symptoms, ordering the right tests, ensuring that the recommendations are completely aligned with the facts, and that all of your concerns are addressed. As a patient, I have never felt so well cared for in my entire life. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Trad and Paul Marino.

Dr Trad fully discloses the steps the patient has to go through before surgery, is a very good listener, and is very attentive to your medical and surgical care before, during and after the surgery. He partners with the patient and their family and is a strong communicator.

I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about both Dr. Trad, and his PA Paul Marino! Both of these gentlemen are not only the absolute best and most knowledgeable in their field, but they are also the most genuine, and caring healthcare providers you could ever be blessed to care for you! I was completely neglected by another surgeon in August of '16, and I had MANY complications, one being that he didn't even repair one inguinal hernia. Dr. Trad & Paul fixed me perfectly and are the BEST!

Dr. Trad performed a hernia repair surgery on me few months ago. I did that to improve my quality of life and to be more active. The end result is that i feel much worse now and i would give anything right now to go back to the day before the surgery. To be fair,I don't think he did anything wrong but i do think that the procedure itself and the mesh used is not suitable for me. I was not aware of the risks of this surgery and i don't get the feel that Dr. Trad is acknowledging my sufferring.

Very nice bedside manner dealing with my elderly mother. Thorough and compassionate. She did not require surgery, but I wouldn't hesitate to have him perform the surgery if it had been necessary; and I would recommend him to anyone requiring surgery.

Dr. Trad was an excellent surgeon and physician. His whole staff made me feel comfortable and all of the nurses and doctors at Reston Hospital were terrific as well. I honestly could not have asked for a better experience having my gallbladder removed (laproscopically). Thank you Dr. Trad! And an additional special thank you to his physician's assistant, Paul Marino. Mr. Marino made me feel that no question or concern I had was unimportant. I felt heard and cared for in the follow up.
