Dr. Toerge has been the dermatologist for our family for years now. She is so wonderful that we drive an hour from our home to see her. We would never go to anyone else. She provides excellent care and is very warm and kind as well. We were lucky to find her!

Doctor Toerge is one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate doctors I have ever been seen by. No other doctor could cure my acne for 40 years. But she did. She also has some of the most amazing lasers in the D.C. Metro area. I tried her SculpSure body contouring laser and lost a full pant size after the treatment that only took 25 minutes and was painless! I highly recommend this amazing doctor and extraordinary human being.
