Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was concerned about an unusual spot on my forearm and Dr Toerge said it was probably just a freckle. Nonetheless, I asked her to biopsy it and it turned out to be squamous cell carcinoma. Six months later, I brought to her attention a very similar mark on my other arm in the same area, and she also felt that was a freckle. It too turned out to be squamous cell. During the same time period, she handled a situation with my 22-year old daughter poorly, so given the totality of the circumstances, our family has found a new dermatologist.

Dr. Toerge cancelled my appointment when I arrived at her office. Her assistant was adamant that the office had contacted me about the cancellation. They had not. Incompetence. Don't use this doctor.

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.
