Best doctor ever!
About me: guy who was freaking out about a possible genital wart. I was looking for a competent, no-frills, non-cosmetic-product-pushing derm. I don't usually write reviews, but: a. this was my most pleasant/useful doctor visit ever b. reviews about visits for potential genital warts are understandably hard to come by. Hope this helps. Other reviews are spot on. Dr Anhalt is highly competent and he puts you at ease with his easy-going and funny bedside manner. He's a Stanford dermatology professor, but this is easy to miss because he's so down-to-earth and humble. With respect to the suspicious lump on my junk, it was not possible to diagnose via exam. He cut it off to examine closely later (biopsy). Regardless of the outcome, Dr Anhalt assured me that it's not a big deal now that the lump was gone. This was a huge relief to me, someone who was freaking out. Though I only came in for the weiner lump, Dr Anhalt saw my eczema and gave me thorough, yet simple treatment advice. I learned a lot and this is saying a lot because I've been seeing doctors, for eczema, since childhood. Out-of-pocket billing was transparent and painless. Receptionist and nurse were friendly and professional. TLDR: Dr Anhalt is the best derm I've ever seen. Assistant staff are equally awesome. PS: Dr Anhalt might still be your cup of tea if you do care about cosmetic issues, though I can't comment further. He asked me early on whether I cared about scars/acne. I said no. All treatment advice was no-frills from thereon.
All good, professional and with a sense of humor
Awesome dude. Have seen him for over 20 years and will continue to do so.
Both me and my wife have been pretty happy with Dr Todd. We both were treated very well and the problem was diagnosed in one visit. We should have gone to him first itself and avoided several rounds of misdiagnosis.
It was amazing!
No significant waiting, fast diagnosis and treatment. A pleasant experience.
Been seeing him for 15 years and he's the best!
Very confident doctor. I liked him a lot. Would go there again soon
Dr Anhalt actually makes it enjoyable to see the doctor
Everyone at the practice was friendly/helpful. Dr. Anhalt did a full body skin check with was unexpectedly but appreciated.
Dr. Anhalt is awesome!
He was a wonderful Dr. He Took care of my issues right away . I'm very pleased with my results !
Everything went well, he is competent and has a good manner.
I am always left feeling a little uncertain how serious or non-serious a lesion or condition is after visiting the doctor. I wish he would be a little more direct in that issue.
Very knowledgeable and personable professional!
Clearly a personable doctor with a wonderful sense of humor. He knows his science and has been practicing for many years. Up to date on all new therapies and very knowledgable about use of botox for beauty and medical conditions.
I'm always glad I can get in and out quickly and still have all my questions addressed!
Simple check in and seen right away. Dr. Anhalt was knowledgeable, diagnosed problem with treatment options.
Dr. Anhalt is a great guy! Didn't really want a male doctor but he was the only one available on Friday - thank goodness!! Awesome energy, great sense of humor, very fair pricing. Would highly recommend him.
Excellent visit with good information and medical service. friendly staff and very helpful.
Dr. Anhult is very detailed with his annual check up - I have seen him for about 6 years straight. He is very knowledgable and does not push treatments on you. For a harmless spot on my face he asked "how much does it bother you" and when I said not much he said fine.
Very professional office staff and clearly exceptional doctor. Incredibly accurate and knowledgable with great personality. His practices are fair and the office has a lovely atmosphere. It is a friendly and cozy office where you are sure to enjoy your visit and leave with great satisfaction.
My visit with Todd Anhalt, MD, FACP, was totally efficient. He was professional, knowledgeable and knew exactly how to treat my skin condition. I had no doubts after my visit with him. I highly recommend him.
No wait, quick and to the point, great advice. Awesome over all.
Dr. Anhalt was friendly and knowledgable and a compendium of great dad jokes. I usually hate the doctor but this dermatologist visit was quick and easy. I wish he was a bit more thorough while doing the head to toe check though just for my own anxieties, but he does a good job when specifically asked. Oh and his office was good at dealing with insurance!
I have had to see a number of dermatologists over the years and hands down Dr Anhalt is the guy I would pick first to go and see before anyone else. I have a some what complicated case and Dr Anhalt gets right into figuring out what is going on and how we are going to treat it. Asks a ton of questions, but then he can understand what is going on so we can find an effective treatment. And a nice guy to top it off.
I had a great experience. Great doctor and staff.
Dr. Anhalt was fabulous! If anyone is worried about a full skin check, you shouldn't be. He is so professional and light hearted that you forget you're at the doctor! Really pleased with my entire experience and his positive approach to treating patients.
Excellent doc and a great staff. Knowledgable and expert treatment with a healthy dose of humor!
Dr. Anhalt and his staff are freaking awesome. They'll take great care of you.
Very personable and funny. Is meticulous and thorough with annual check ups. Goes out of his way to be helpful
I was so pleased with Dr Todd Anhalt answer all my questions and concerns , very polite definitely recommend him 100% and staff where very nice and treated us wonderful
I've been seeing Dr. Anhalt for yearrrrrrrs, since I was in 5th grade. I'm 25 now! He also treats my mom and sister. He's the only doctor that I've kept over the years because he's The BEST. Plus he's hilarious. I get compliments on my skin and people have no idea the work Dr. Anhalt and I have put into getting my skin this way! Thanks Dr. Anhalt!
Good experience. I will go back in the future and recommend to others.
Every visit with Dr. Anhalt is pleasant! He has a smile on his face, tells a quick joke, and then gets down to business. His bedside manner is warm and kind, and he is very intuitive and interested in the patient as a person. I look forward to seeing him!
I have been going to Dr Anhalt for many many years. He is very skilled at diagnosis and does not rest until he gets to the bottom of things. This visit was an annual skin check and he was as usual personable and professional.
Dr. Anhalt was fantastic, very informative, and he immediately put me at ease. I'm looking forward to having him as my dermatologist - I won't go anywhere else!
Sweet, knowledgeable, informative, caring, warm.....
He was awesome. Listened to my concerns. Treated my keloids without judgement that I have experienced before.
The office was closed when I arrived for my 5:10 appt. I like Dr. Anhalt and will schedule again but maybe over the phone like usual. I knew what happened quickly so I checked "Right Away" above, since there is no option for "schedule mixup".
Booking was very easy (online). Doctor Anhalt was ready before I was (I had to fill out forms as it was my first visit). Staff is friendly, Todd was friendly. He answered my questions, did the examination, and even took and checked a skin scraping within about 20 minutes.
Had suffered contact dermities for 2 two months. Doctor Todd has finally cured me! Don't wast your time and money on other dermatologists, because I did so!
Saw Dr. Anhalt for the first time today. One of the most jovial doctors I've ever met. Really made me feel comfortable.
I loved Dr. Anhalt. It's clear that he is beyond knowledgable in his field and deeply cares for his patients. I've had a growth on my face for over 2 years now that was previously examined by a different dermatologist who didn't recommend thorough diagnostic testing. Dr. Anhalt suspected otherwise (it's likely skin cancer), so ordered a biopsy. The results should arrive in the next day or so. I trust his expertise and am thrilled I made an appointment with him!
Very professional and nice person.
A very happy up beat person, and willing to go the extra mile to make me comfortable
He is very funny and gets straight to the issues .Highly recommended
He tells awful jokes!
Knowledgeable, Attentive to needs/questions, personable.
Dr. Anhalt was very kind and made me feel at ease. Very professional.
Thorough, fun and educational!
He 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 kid)
Great doctor, great person, great sense of humor!
It was a pleasure and will return gladly :)) Him and his staff wonderful in every possible way!!!
Good doc, and jovial tooo
Only my first visit there, but very positive.
Dr. Anhalt was friendly and professional. I like his sense of humor.
Dr. Anhalt is very personable, professional, and is an excellent physician. I am very happy to recommend this doctor!
I'm feeling very itchy all the time and went to many doctors for treatment, but it's still getting worst than before. Then I decide to go to visit with Dr. Todd. I think he is very knowledge about the skin issues. Hopefully, he can treat me then I won't feel itchy anymore.
upbeat , explains treatments well.
Very pleasant and efficient. Met all of my expectations
Professional. Dr Anhalt was trained in internal medicine and dermatology, so he gave me some free advice on my stomach issues too. I saw him for rosacea. He gave me a prescription cream to try and ruled out the link between gastrointestinal issues and rosacea in my case. Great staff! Very efficient and friendly. Price is high though. I will have to see if the cream works before I can tell if it was worth the visit! All in all, it was a very pleasant experience.
very friendly and had cost effective solutions to my maladies.
very reassuring. Makes you feel that you're in good hands.
a little rushed but otherwise one of the best visits i have ever had. would be the best if advice for prevention and causes are shared automatically.
Great doctor great relations skills and excellent diagnostic
Thorough but concise. Very knowledgable and trustworthy.
California Skin Institute is a 'network' of dermatologists that are specialists in their own field. If you go to one of their doctors and he/she feels that one of their other doctors are better qualified to serve your personal need, they will refer to that doctor. Great organization. Dr Anhalt was a delight!
Very good. No problems.
Very thorough, and has a great sense of humor.
Great personality; very professional. Good staff.
I can rely on being seen promptly and I trust his judgement for myself as well as my children. My kids enjoy his outgoing & engaging approach as do I!
Felt comfortable right away - clearly explained explained everything.
He's a happy guy that listens, rare person in the medical field
Thorough, patient with questions, gave detailed background and answers.
Great experience. Fast, helpful, great attitude and sense of humor + speak French fluently! A plus.
Very friendly. Put you at ease.
Dr. Anhalt was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk with. I felt confident that he knew what he was talking about especially with his thirty years of experience. I have had several evaluations and I wanted to get one last opinion. He was right on the money. After leaving his office I had piece of mind and I felt completely confident that I did not need any more opinions. Look no further for expert advise. I would highly recommend Dr. Anhalt!!!
Nice, quick professional visit. Was good with my 4-yr old son.
Doctor really knows what he is talking about. He is the extremely knowledgeable, the consummate professional, not to mention, funny.
Dr Anhalt listens, rare at times for a doctor. He sat down and listened to my case, asked a lot of questions and seemed very interested in trying to make my life more comfortable. He asked what about my condition bothers me the most and focused in on getting that under control right away. And the best part is he is a happy guy, nice to have around
Great dermatologist, knows what he's talking about and wants to make sure all problems are fixed.
He gave me so much very useful information in one office visit. He obviously is well educated and well-experienced. I left the office feeling really positive about the appointment.
excellent doctor, great personality, warm and friendly. Very funny and puts you at ease.
Proficient, efficient, caring doctor with excellent credentials.
He was a very nice guy who provided me with the right treatment. He seemed generally uninterested in me as a patient and told an interesting story... to say the least. But, he knows what he is talking about and will give you the medication and information you need.
Quirky, but friendly.
