Patient Testimonials for Anjali Varma Morales, MD

We scheduled another appointment to have my daughter treated with injections and I scheduled this over the phone with Julia, one of the receptionists. She was super helpful!! I let her know that I needed someone who would talk with my daughter, as I knew she was going to be nervous and a little scared (so was I to be honest). She scheduled us at the Santana Row with Dr. Morales who was the perfect fit! She was kind,patient and spoke WITH (a wonderful attribute) my daughter and explained the options in case we wanted to try something other than the injections. She treated her with compassion and respect which I think, made Jamie (my daughter) very comfortable with having to have the procedure.

I would highly recommend her to any one, especially the younger population.

Thank you Dr. Morales!

I have seen Dr Morales twice, and each time she has gone above and beyond to take care of
my skin problem. She has wonderful bedside manner and is kind and very easy to talk to. I
have recommended her to all my friends and family, and I will continue to see her for all my
dermatology needs.

I am delighted with Dr. Morales. She is fantastic! She is very compassionate and gentle when providing services. She has identified potential pre skin cancer hot spots and treated them before they became an issue. I am very grateful to her.
