Testimonials

What Our Clients Say About Us

    "If you are looking for a professional, top notch, world class dermatologist call Dr. R. Makala Anders in Santa Rosa/Sonoma. My mother was diagnosed with melanoma on her leg. Due to the advance nature of the cancer, prognosis was not good. Dr. Anders removed the tumor and ten years later my mother is alive and well. Great job Dr. Anders, thank you."

    P.L.

    "If you have skin problems and are embarrassed about them like I was than this is the right office to come to. They are very welcoming and don't make you feel like your different from other people. I came in with a very bad acne problem and was so scared of all the things they were going to say about me, but they didn't. I was able to make an appointment that worked with my schedule and didn't have to wait to be seen when I got there."

    Victoria L.

    "I love going for my annual checkup, the team there is outstanding, friendly and engaging. I also adore them for donating to me samples to give to the homeless in a Santa Rosa location, and to the fire victims of the Camp Fire. So grateful for their big hearts."

    Judy M.

    "I am grateful for the personality and skill of Dr. Anders.  I have seen him for a number of skin concerns over the years.  I have felt in great hands with his reassuring way.  Amazed that I felt no pain with the procedures that I had to get done, and relieved that he was able to tackle my pressing concern with swift action guided by experience and knowledge.  I recommend him without exception. "

We're Moving! / We're Merging!

Dear Friends and Patients,

We are excited to announce that we will be merging our Santa Rosa office with our Sonoma office as of June 30, 2022. We will be practicing together in one location full time which allows us to offer more office hours and be available at more flexible times.

We value you as a patient and hope you will come to Sonoma for all your
dermatological needs. Our office will continue to provide the best care possible and accept the same insurance plans.

We realize that change can be difficult but we hope to make the transition as smooth as possible for you. If you have a scheduled appointment, please call the office to reschedule to a date and time in our Sonoma or Napa offices. Our staff will be available to help.

It has been a pleasure working with you and we look forward to seeing you in Sonoma or Napa. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 707-938-1423.
