Best doctor I've ever seen. Knew the problem, listened to my history, and we went with what works. Wish she was a PCP and not just a dermatologist.

I liked Dr. McCloskey personally, but I do believe that even though my problem was simple (loss of hair and 4 moles) that a physician should at least look at the problem. She did not examine my head nor did she look at the moles except while sitting across from me in the exam room. In my opinion that is not an exam. I am sure her experience as a physician is great but at least give a hands on examine instead of giving an opinion without looking at the scalp or all of the moles.

I still have itching but,,, seems like that is hard to identify the specific reason. Very attentive to my needs and listens well. Made me feel comfortable. Will go back to her and felt better about my skin issues after seeing her.

I was lucky enough to be seen the same day I called for an appointment. Dr McCloskey is very thorough in her exam, and explained what different skin issues were. She also was able to treat some areas immediately, which totally removed my stress. I have already recommended her to a friend this week.

I went to get a rash treated and she help me with that issue. Then she asked if she could do a total body check to make sure I didn’t have any other skin problems. She found an area on my back that turned out to be melanoma cancer. She removed the cancer and now I’m cancer free and doing annual check ups. Thanks so much!

We feel Dr. McCloskey saved my husband life. In 2009 I was getting a mole removed and she looked at my husband and said I don't like the looks of that spot on your face. After she finished my procedure she took a biopsy of his. She did it right away and wanted his cell number since were leaving on a trip. She called him herself and told him it was melanoma cancer and needed to have it out as soon as we got back. She made all the arangements. Took it out and checks him twice a year.
