Except for the “book” I had to fill out when I first came, which I know is necessary because I was a first time patient, the appointment went well. Polite, smiling employees who make your visit easy. Dr. McCloskey welcomes and quick gets the job done. Thank you!

Dr. McCloskey did her usual excellent job. She explained everything in detail, gave me my alternatives and I had a "enjoyable" procedure. Always recommend her to anyone who is looking for an outstanding dermatologist.
