I had a previous visit with Dr Neubauer, and he is very rude and will never see him again. Has no bed side manners.

I love Dr. McCloskey. She is caring, experienced, thorough & reassuring. Skin cancer runs in my family. I won't see anyone else for my skin care. Other than a fairly long wait in the exam room, the office is efficient & pleasant. Recommend. :)
