Dr. and staff were very accommodating due to the late arrival for my appointment on previous visit. Most recent visit resulted in a thorough assessment of lesions on the head. Much appreciated.

I was apprehensive about taking my daughter to a dermatologist. Dr. McCloskey took the time to get to know our issues and took us seriously. We are following her recommendations and seeing results!

Dr. McCloskey is friendly, personable and knowledgeable. When my daughter needed to see a dermatologist, my husband suggested I make the appointment with her, as he has seen her a few times and found her to be a good doctor. In Yorkville she is the dermatologist to see. If I need any appointments for myself in the future, I will not hesitate to see Dr. McCloskey.
