Knowledgeable, friendly and educating doctor. Dr. McCloskey takes the time to explain what's going on and why what she recommends will help.

Always excellant service and honest advise. Dr Mc is a fine doctor. See her every couple of years for a body scan. She has been mine and my husbands dermatologist for several years.
in Mokena, IL |
Dr. McCloskey always thoroughly explains what she has detected. There is minimum wait time; she appears to be on schedule most visits. She is kind, gentle and a very informative Doctor. I happily recommend her to my family and friends.
Shorewood, IL |
I have received outstanding care from Dr McCloskey for years. Always very attentive & thorough.
Saw her twice for treating adult acne. First visit I waited over an hour. She finally saw me, looked at me for maybe a minute, asked me if my job is stressful then prescribed me some outrageously expensive cream and some pills with alarming side effects. Didn't ask about any products I use or history of skin care. Went in for follow up and waited at least 45 minutes. This visit was equally brief and rushed. Overall I just felt very rushed like I was wasting her time and she was blowing me off.
