Our Story

Dr. Robert Handwerger

ONE OF THE LARGEST and most well-established dermatology practices in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states.

When Dr. Robert Handwerger, now retired, established his solo dermatology practice in Annapolis over 40 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 surrounding Annapolis, Maryland. Today our skilled clinicians and modern clinical offices deliver a full suite of cosmetic laser and skin care services and products, as well as dedicated in-house Mohs surgery and pathology laboratory services.

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, relaxed environment for our patients,” says Dr. Angela Peterman. “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 board certified physicians who 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.

We treat patients of all ages – from infants to older adults. Whether it’s a common or rare skin condition, or problems with your nails, hair, or scalp, our dermatologists work with every patient to provide treatment options for every patient’s unique circumstances.
Who better to trust with the beauty that is you than our medical Cosmetic Clinicians and Specialists? You’ll get the medical expertise and supervision that’s paramount to keeping your skin healthy with a beautiful glow.
