Really liked dr mccloskey. I also liked that she came in and got right to it. Asked me questions, told me about each option for hyperhydrosis (?) , gave me options to pick, prescribed and I was on my way. Toldme if I ended up not liking my pick then to call her and we’ll try another. She was very nice and honest and down to earth. Glad My mom recommended her. show more

Dr. McCloskey is an excellent dermatologist. She makes you feel very comfortable during the all over body check She is proactive and educates you every step of the way. She even gives me suggestions on how to enhance my skincare routine. I have had a much better experience with her than with my last dermatologist. Also, her staff does all the insurance paperwork for you - that's a bonus!
