Verified Patient Reviews
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.....
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 tells awful jokes!
Knowledgeable, Attentive to needs/questions, personable.

He is very funny and gets straight to the issues .Highly recommended

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!!!

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!
The appointment felt a bit too rushed in terms of doing a full body mole check, but Dr. Anhalt was very responsive in answering specific questions or addressing areas of concern.
Very good. No problems.
He was awesome. Listened to my concerns. Treated my keloids without judgement that I have experienced before.
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.
