14/05/11 5 5 5 5 My recent experience with Dr. Anthony is all that I hope for in a doctor. I was worried about a skin rash. The doctor was thorough in his examination and took time with me. Then, he explained to me his conclusions about my condition. What I appreciated most of all was his ability to put complicated medical matters into clear words. I only wish more doctors were like this!

18/04/11 5 5 1 2 I have never reviewed a Dr. before but chose this Dr. based on reviews. I would never go back! I went in with an ER diagnosis for follow-up care. He did not even look at my wound site, totally changed the diagnosis, ignored my questions, gave me a prescription for the new diagnosis and walked out. He then told me to get a second opinion from an opthamologist (in spite of the fact that it is a skin issue not an eye issue). I am off to a new Dr. at PAMF this afternoon.

10/12/07 5 5 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. Anthony for years and really like him. He is very knowledgeable and I trust him with my skin concerns. I've had a lot of sun exposure so it's extremely important to me to have regular checkups with a dermatologist who knows what he's doing. I wouldn't mess around going to one I didn't trust.  Respond

03/10/07 1 1 1 1 This doctor is very unfriendly and unpatient. I had a small wounded area with infection he just kept doing my chart but not even bother to clean up the pus and put some medicine on the wounded area. I was very angry about this unprofessional service. i would not recommend this doctor at all.  Respond

18/04/06 5 5 5 I and my husband saw him together for totally different problems. He was very helpful and super-knowledgeable. He cared about ELIMINATING the CAUSES, as well as about relieving symptoms without causing harm to the body and without building up the resistance to initial problems. He also explained what happens and why (where many others just give you a prescription and do not explain a thing). Also he does not make you come back if you do not need it. Very highly recommend!

12/01/06 5 5 5 An extremely kind and knowledgeable physician. Makes sure you understand exactly what you have, what the treatment options are and why, so you can make a very informed decision. Has office great office hours. Early morning, evening and Saturday appointments-really caters to his patients. I have seen him for years as well as my two children who are adults now and still see him. Would highly recommend him.  Respond
