Dr. Mcclosky is very knowledgeable, and compassionate about her patients and her work . I had a oil sack removed from my scalp and a wart taken care of today. It was quick and went smoothly … Doctor Mccloskey and her assistant make a great team ! I was very comfortable and again the procedure was over before I knew it .

Highly recommend Dr. Gayle McClowski and Premier Dermatology. My father, sister, and I unfortunately are blessed with skin cancer. Dr. McClowski has identified very early on all of our malignant melanomas and has literally saved our lives. She is kind, compassionate, and the person I trust most of all with my health. I’ve had to undergo surgery to remove my melanoma and she went above and beyond to make me feel at peace, well taken care of, and in good hands. My family literally trusts her with our lives. I also never wait long before I’m seen. If I have an appt. at 1:30pm, I’m seen at 1:30pm. Take care of yourself everyone!!!
