Because of dermatology’s complexity, it is absolutely crucial that patients seek skin treatments from board-certified dermatologists. They are the only true experts in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

I love the efficiency with which this office is run. I have never waited long to be seen. I appreciate that very much as I still work full time from home and usually fit my appointments in at the beginning of my work day. Dr. McCloskey is always pleasant. I have multiple skin issues including psoriasis, eczema, and have had a basal skin cancer removed that was diagnosed by this office. My previous derm told me it was a cyst and to leave it alone. I'm so glad I went to Premier Dermatology!
