Dr. McCloskey is a Board-Certified Dermatologist. She had acne when she was younger, which lends her a unique perspective on her patients’ skin conditions. Having been a patient herself, she truly puts her heart and soul into the treatment she provides. She also takes great pride in the fact that she completed her dermatology residency at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. Her advice to anyone who might be nervous about a procedure is that she will do her best to make them as comfortable as possible while answering any and all questions honestly and directly.

Dr. McCloskey on patient care

Because of dermatology’s complexity, it is absolutely crucial that patients seek skin treatments from board-certified dermatologists. They are the only true experts in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

Dr. McCloskey first saw my son years ago. Since then I decided she would also be my doctor. She is kind and reassuring at every appointment. Very genuine.

Really liked dr mccloskey. I also liked that she came in and got right to it. Asked me questions, told me about each option for hyperhydrosis (?) , gave me options to pick, prescribed and I was on my way. Toldme if I ended up not liking my pick then to call her and we’ll try another. She was very nice and honest and down to earth. Glad My mom recommended her. show more
