I believe Dr Anthony treats everyone as he would want to be treated. He treats people with disabilities in a kind and professional manner. He is respectful with all. 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.
