View our Mission Statement

When Dr. Robert Handwerger established his solo dermatology practice in Annapolis over 30 years ago, he could never have envisioned that he was creating the foundation for what would become one of the premier full-service dermatology practices in the area of Annapolis, Maryland (MD). With modern, attractive clinical offices in Annapolis, Bethesda, Easton, Eldersburg, Fairfax, Glen Burnie, Hagerstown, Prince Frederick, Leonardtown, Kent Island, Mt. Airy, Owings Mills, Rockville, Towson and Westminster, 38 board certified physicians, 3 certified nurse practitioners, 9 physician assistants, 3 registered nurses, full suite of cosmetic laser and skin care services and products, and dedicated in-house Mohs surgery and pathology laboratory services, Anne Arundel Dermatology is now the largest and most well established dermatology practice in Maryland.

The impressive growth and success of Anne Arundel Dermatology is largely based on the practice’s unique ability to combine personalized care with state-of-the-art clinical training and expertise. Our entire practice subscribes to the quality, not quantity, philosophy of care. “The experience and longevity of our staff help to create a positive environment for our patients,” Dr. Peterman says. “Every person in our group is committed to providing the kind of high-quality, compassionate care they would want for their own families, delivered in a personalized and sensitive manner.”

The 38 board certified physicians who now comprise the medical staff of Anne Arundel Dermatology are highly regarded professionals within the community. While most of the group’s physicians provide the full range of dermatology services, several of them also have areas of specialization, including pediatric dermatology and board certified Mohs surgeons, providing highly specialized treatment of skin cancer lesions. Our cosmetic dermatologists along with our aestheticians provide the latest in cosmetic approaches for skin care and facial rejuvenation.
