My visit was good, wait time was not long at all. DR McCloskey was as always very nice and pleasant, so easy to talk to.

the office is very noisy in general. Very crowded and the tv is on and lots of people chatting/talking. Made me very uncomfortable. I get very nervous going to the skin doctor, and the office noise just makes me more uncomfortable. I might have to drive all the way to Morris next time. The chairs in the waiting room are very uncomfortable and those paper gown gotta go!

I've been going to PD for years and have never had a bad experience. The staff and doctors are always so friendly and helpful. Wish more doctor and their offices were like that.

I have been a patient of Dr.. McClosky for several years for annual cancer screenings. Although I have confidence in her, I always feel rushed, and she doesn't explain what she finds. I will probably look for another provider next year.

The Dr. was quick and did not explain procedures thoroughly.
