First, Dr. Triozzi is awesome. Outstanding knowledge, care and compassion. Explains things in an ease to understand manner. Very personable and approachable. Highly recommended! Second, on WF Baptist. It is clear that WF Baptist leadership and management has set in place an environment where concern, superior care and friendliness to patients comes first. It is systemic and you can tell. The staff smile and say hi to you, they help, they answer questions freely. They go to great lengths to offer important advice that is helpful to your condition and care. (My parents, located in Greensboro, received a consult for a second opinion at WF Baptist. They were amazed at the friendliness of personnel, the amount of information they received and the talent, experience and overall approach of the providers. While it was not intended, WF Baptist, for the aforementioned reasons, has become their hospital of choice.)


*Dr. Triozzi has a warm, caring demeanor and is a true specialist treating melanoma.


The provider in this survey is for a specialized medical condition. (cancer) He is excellent and knowledgeable.






Super smart, experienced and easy to talk to. Very knowledgeable. Explains things very well in easy to understand terms. Has a good way about him that puts me at ease. High level of trust in Dr. Triozzi. Highly recommend.


Could not ask for a better experience.


I highly recommend. Dr. Triozzi has taken the time to explain many different aspects of my care and treatment in easy to understand terms. Incredibly, he knows far more about my medical history than any other doctor I've been to over my lifetime. His approaches are well thought out and it shows. He always has a way of putting me at ease, despite the fears I have and this helps me to continue with positivity.


*Dr. Triozzi MD is so NICE and GOOD.


This provider is a specialist (cancer) and I only see him for specific treatments.


Talk to you in words you can understand.


I have recommended this facility and its staff to others.
