I liked that Dr. Toerge really listened and let me point out my concerns without interrupting or cutting me off (like a lot of docs do). She was patient, didn't seem rushed and let me take the time to ask questions.It was only my fist appointment, but so far my experience is great!

I took my son to see Dr. Toerge about his severe acne issues. She laid out all of the options and allowed us to choose the aggressive option (Acutane) right away. She gave him a lower dose to take for alonger time (which I liked) and made sure he had blood taken every month to be sure there were no bad side effects. The treatment was successful and his skin looks great!

Excellent physician with an incredible bedside manner. Dr. Toerge listens to patients and works to provide quality care and several options. She's warm and respectful of her patients, of which I am fortunate to be one. She worked locally inVirginia and moved, and she's such a great dermatologist that I followed her. My only wish was that she took my insurance.

Dr. Toerge saw my 4 year old who is suffering from a terrible skin rash. Her bedside manner with a child was outstanding. My little guy instantly took to her. She looked closely at the problem, suggested a course of action,set up a follow up and made it clear that if I needed her prior to the follow-up, I could just give her a call. She patiently answered all of my questions. The only thing that makes visiting her a little hard is that you must pay for services up front and then submit the paperwork yourself to your insurance. That's a hassle, but otherwise this was a great visit.
