I could not believe this provider. he got me in before I finished filling out forms, was very thorough with questions and explanations while making the visit move along. he had suggestions for me based on my out of pocket expense, which I found amazing and was very thankful for. I received a thank you letter personally signed by this provider after my visit and I have been giving his name to my family because he provides such great service! Many thanks to this thoughtful and kind provider!!

Dr. McClellan has been a superb resource over the several years he has been my dermatologist. This situation was one of concern, due to possible malignancy. He was extremely responsive to the situation, and performed the procedure promptly that was needed. What was much more important, was how he responded so quickly to the Mychart posting of the biopsy results. He answered questions, helped with scheduling, and, most importantly, put my concerns to rest. A superb physician!!

I was diagnosed with a melanoma. Dr recommended surgery and simultaneous Sentinel Lymph Node biopsy. Dr office and I spent a lot of time trying to find an in network surgeon who would do both. Dr found one but at my appt with surgeon he said he didn't feel SLN was necessary. Much time and angst over something not ultimately necessary.

Dr. McClelland is an exceptional physician. He is truly concerned about his patients and even though I know he is busy, I never feel he is rushing through an appt. I've always felt he addresses my issues and is knowledgeable about treating them. It is important that a physician can address and treat physical issues, but even more important to a patient that he/she connect on a personal level, showing concern and understanding for what a patient is experiencing. Dr. McClelland is a physician I would recommend without hesitation.

09/22/2017
Dr Matthew McClelland is an exemplary physician. He is my dermatologist and I see him primarily as a follow up to a melanoma surgery I had in 2013 so I see him every 6 months. Soon I will only need to see him annually. The day I saw him he was the only provider in an office that normally had 4 providers so he was of course doing his best to keep up. This translated to less time and my not being able to ask him quickly about another skin issue I was having. I realize that some issues need separate appointments and I have made those on some occasions, but this would have been a quick question. And please keep in mind that most people who end up in the dermatologists office have a family history of skin and allergy issues so many times it's never only about one thing, and an annual appointment is the time to ask about those. My point here is that even is this day and age where physicians have PAs, that it's just crazy to expect a busy office with one person to do the work of four and someone should have been pulled from somewhere else to fill in. [...]

09/21/2017
I really like the way the doctor makes me feel like an individual and not just another patient that needs to be processed.

09/04/2017
There was not enough time provided for the appointment. I felt rushed. I felt like I had to get my questions asked in a hurry. The appointment was so robotic. The doctor was pleasant, however, I felt rushed and had more questions that I was given the time to ask. The doctor literally walked out when I was still in the process of asking a question. I was frustrated by this. The problem I was in the office to be seen for has been going on for over a year and intensified drastically in the last six months. I feel more effort should have been given to find the true cause of the problem. Perform a biopsy on my scalp. I just felt that I was rushed and pushed.This was the first time I saw this doctor.

Doc is MY Dermatologist and is always a pleasure to see. He's quick & professional & very thorough.

08/31/2017
I was referred to this provider to have a Basal cell lesion removed. The provider's assistant asked me about having a skin exam. she highly recommended it but I went back and forth on my decision. Hesitantly I told her yes because I was concerned about a long standing lesion on my back. The provider examined the lesion and immediately biopsied it. He was certain it was Melanoma and hopefully very early. Because his assistant recommended the exam, she saved my life and because the provider felt the lesion was dangerous, he saved my life. I can't commend this provider and assistant enough and believe me my daughter and I shed many tears yesterday. [...] Thank you so much [...] and Dr. McClelland.

08/30/2017
dr McClellan is outstanding
40

08/30/2017
I got the impression that the questions I asked were not valid. I felt dismissed and somewhat stupid for coming in. I felt he didn't take his time really looking at what I asked him to look at. In fact, he told me one spot was seborrheic keratoses, but it later fell off much like a scab and there's nothing there anymore. So was it really or not?
80

08/27/2017
the provider accepted a printed paper from an ungloved person while the provider was doing minor surgery (removing about a 1/4 piece of skin which as to be biopsied and then two stitches) on my back. I mentioned to him that he held the paper looked at it and put it down without changing his surgical gloves. He said the paper was clean and not to worry about it. I mentioned that on my crime scene team we would have changed gloves due to cross contamination of DNA and other contaminants. He said the paper was clean and didn't change his surgical gloves.

08/03/2017
I was told that because I have [...] and no other insurance, there was nothing he could do for me, that anything he would try would be too expensive for me. Not knowing my financial situation, I have no idea how he came up with that.

100

06/15/2017
Dr. McClelland is a wonderful provider, and I always leave from an office visit with my questions answered and addressed. This was a routine visit, but required a biopsy. I was called by his office [...] with the results, and she gave me detailed information about the surgeon that was recommended, what type of procedure to request, etc etc. I always feel that information is the best tool one can have with medical situations, and I am very comfortable and informed in Dr. McClelland's care!

05/31/2017
Care given me by my provider was acceptable. However, care given by [...], his MA was very, very poor. She did not wash her hands nor did she listen when she asked for my birthdate to confirm that I was the correct patient. When I pointed it out to her she got furious and gave me unnecessary attitude. I have no confidence in her ability to prevent fraud against my insurance carrier or to ensure that I am the correct patient and will receive the correct care. I will not be going back to this practice.
100

05/29/2017
Very friendly and remembers details about me and my family. This makes me feel relaxed. Listens to what I have to say, and answers my questions and concerns. The Doctor and his staff are very friendly.

Dr. McClellan is a dermatology specialist and [...] I was having a skin outbreak from taking an anti-cancer med- femura. Dr. removed a sarcoma and the biopsy on another wound was negative, but several wounds would itch and not heal. I received an emergency visit and he gave me a steroidal ointment that is working at removing the rash!

03/16/2017
Sensitivity to needs - provider did not listen carefully to concerns about allergic reactions to prescribed medications. Did not seem to believe that the issue existed. However, provider did agree to prescribe alternative medication that would not cause reaction.

02/22/2017
I felt very comfortable with this physician. He explained what he was doing and what he was finding.
90

02/22/2017
It took 4 months to get an appointment, which in my opinion is too long. As it turned out, the matters I was seeking help with were not critical, but no one knew that at the time. If they had been, 4 months would have been unacceptable.
100

02/15/2017
he was wonderful and a great listener !
100

02/12/2017
this care provider was excellent, and less than excellent marks reflect interactions with other providence providers

01/30/2017
Superb physician and MA team. She was very competent and complemented Dr. McClellans skills very well. She entered the information on the EMR while he did the exam. It was my fourth visit with him and each time he has shown himself to be a caring and competent provider, remembering history beyond the EMR, which is impressive since I see him every year to 18 months.
100

01/25/2017
Dr. McClellan is a very informative, caring Dermatologist. I have recommended him a few times.
100

01/24/2017

12/22/2016
I have had very good experiences with the dermatology clinic...knowledgeable, responsive, informative, and timely.
40

12/14/2016
Came in for a checkup, less than 2 minutes spent with Dr. actually looking at my skin, talked for 5 minutes about how much it would cost me to do anything about the spots that concerned me [...]. Waste of my money and time.
90

12/14/2016
On the day of our visit, snow was likely. We called the office the nite before our visit and the morning of our visit and we were told that the office would be open. We left home at 6:15 AM for the hour plus drive to the office. Once we got to the office we found it closed. We talked to the after-hours office about the closure. They called the doctor who came into the office to take care of us. This was very kind of him and most considerate of our time and frustration. Dr. McCullen is to be commended for making the extra effort to see us.
100

12/14/2016
I have rarely encountered a doctor as caring and sensitive to my needs as Dr. McClelland has been.
