Dr. and staff were very accommodating due to the late arrival for my appointment on previous visit. Most recent visit resulted in a thorough assessment of lesions on the head. Much appreciated.

I was apprehensive about taking my daughter to a dermatologist. Dr. McCloskey took the time to get to know our issues and took us seriously. We are following her recommendations and seeing results!
