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.
