Absolutely brilliant -- General Surgeon Todd is superb. Having been diagnosed with stage 2a colonic cancer, I was privileged to be placed under the surgical care of Dr. Todd, whose skill and expertise (as many who work at Lakeview Hospital, technicians but also former patients, will attest) remains peerless. I am gratefully indebted to Dr. Todd for the successful laparoscopic colectomy he performed that fully excised this foreign invader from my body. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I was completely informed about exactly what surgery would be done, & the possibilities of what may have to be done depending on what they found when he did the surgery. I had an open breast lumpectomy, lymph node biopsy, and a needle biopsy of a lump on the top of my head. Because of the Covid 19, I was not allowed to have any family members with me. I was made to feel comfortable, & Dr. Todd kept my spouse appraised of all the was going on while I was in the hospital. I have known Dr. Todd for many years, as I used to work at Lakeview Hospital as an RN, and have always held him in high regard, and still do. Things went just as he had anticipated, & I went home the same day. I am still doing very well.

Dr. Todd performed an outpatient surgery for me. From the moment we entered the clinic, we were attended to. Rather than giving directions, one of the assistants accompanied my wife to the check in and then back to the room where I was waiting. The nurses were excellent and very hospitable. The process went as smoothly as it could have gone. Dr. Todd did an excellent job performing the surgery and was very professional. Overall, a great experience.

I had to wait in the treatment room for a bit longer than I felt was good, but once Dr. Todd came in he was great. Very thorough with exam and explanation of my condition. He did surgery on my mother years ago and was fantastic then as well.

My husband and I have both had procedures with Dr Todd in the past. I found out last Friday that I needed to have my gallbladder out. Due to some upcoming travel outside of the country I was quite anxious as to how this would all work out. I was able to get an appointment with Dr Todd on Monday and he put me in for surgery on Tuesday. I am a nurse and I can say that this turn around time is very remarkable. Dr Todd is professional and competent. I would highly recommend.
