Dr. Anthony is a fine doctor but I had tried for a year and a half to get an appointment even on a cancellation list with no success. I called for a same day appointments without with out avail. I know Dr. Anthony is the only dermatologist at the Strongsville location but when a patient needs to see him it should not take this long. I rely on his professionalism and expertise to help give me relief for my medical condition. He is top notch and gives 100% to his patients but not given the opportunity to do his job is frustrating.

Dr. Anthony provided the best experience I have had with Cleveland Clinic providers in many years and was the best dermatologist I have ever seen. I came to see him based on the recommendations online and due to being highly unsatisfied with the private practice I had been to in Medina for years. The difference between my level of care there v. with Dr. Anthony was incredible; he actually listened to my concerns and worked with me spending as much time as necessary to ensure the medications being prescribed were right for me and provided excellent instruction on how to work the prescriptions into my skin care routine. I will never see another dermatologist again.

Add to that, he is a learned doctor in his field. He is a real keeper! Too bad he can't be cloned! I am very happy he is providing care for my daughter. He managed her painful skin issue in three weeks that another dermatologist said she would just "have to live with." Dr. Anthony is really a doctor, not someone building a franchise. Thank you to. the Cleveland Clinic for providing an excellent dermatologist for this area.
