Dr. McElgunn has been a God-send. He has been patient, professional and thorough. Dr. McE spent much of his time conferring w/my army of doctors to help w/my skin condition and its many complications. We have been so fortunate to have found him and are so grateful to him!

I am very satisfied with my experience. I saw a different dermatologist for months who was unable to diagnose my condition, and after my first appointment with McElgunn had answers. He has been very thorough and has made me feel very confident in my treatment and outcome. I am very thankful to have found him.
