Get to know Dermatologists and MOHS Surgeons Dr. Mary F. Farley and Dr. Allan C. Harrington, who serve patients in the State of Maryland.

Dr. Farley and Dr. Harrington are dedicated dermatologists in practice at Anne Arundel Dermatology with offices throughout the State of Maryland.

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, the skilled clinicians and modern clinical offices of  Anne Arundel Dermatology 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 the practice is largely based on its unique ability to combine personalized care with state-of-the-art clinical training and expertise.

Both Dr. Farley and Dr. Harrington are board-certified in dermatology by the American Board of Dermatology, which certifies physicians in dermatology, dermatopathology, and pediatric dermatology.
