He (Dr. Anhalt) was quick, efficient. Spent a lot of time with me. I’m going to have to stay out in the sun extra just so I can find excuses to go back. (I’m kidding)*

Dr. Anhalt has been my family’s dermatologist for as long as I can remember. He has taken care of skin ailments of all kinds and is always thorough, caring, and funny.
