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. reviewsabout 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.

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.

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.

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 "howmuch does it bother you" and when I said not much he said fine.

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 checkthough 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 Anhaltgets 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.

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.

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 whodidn'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!
