I am chemistry professor, and, when I was diagnosed with melanoma, I started to deal with this problem in traditional way - literature search. And I will tell you: Dr. Venna is world level dermatologist, both doctor and scientist. Extremely pleasant , he treated me with patience and sympathy, supporting me a lot. To all of you, people, I recommend: save God you from getting this trouble, but in case if.... Dr. Venna is a man you must be looking for.

Superb doctor in every way! First saw him at Washington Hospital Center and was thrilled that INOVA hired him. Talented, personable MD.

Dr. Vienna is a superb doctor. However rescheduling for a follow up visit is unlikely. My husband has been seeing Dr. Venna for years and cannot reschedule a follow up appointment this year unless he is a “new patient”. How unfortunate after years of committed loyalty from us. Time to find a new doctor.

Love Dr. Venna, he is absolutely phenomenal! We followed him from Washington Hospital Center and I could not be more pleased. He's very thourough and competent, sweet and reassuring! There is never a long wait to be seen. He explains EVERYTHING so well. My Gma has skin cancer all over her arms, and I will be bringing her in for an appt with his team as well! He's so personable and down to earth, allaround just an amazing doctor! I hope he stays at INOVA, he's great!

I followed Dr. Venna from another practice and cannot put into words how much I respect him. I travel 2 hours for my appointments. He is kind, professional and thorough. I have experienced all 3 types of skin cancer and know that Dr. Venna will always take care of whatever comes next.

Dr. Venna and Dr. Jang are both wonderful physicians 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.
