The staff here was very nice and attentive. Dr. McMullen had a great positive attitude and listened to my concerns, we discussed various options and I appreciated how he always took my concerns into consideration. I would say Dr. McMullen isvery knowledgable and understanding when it comes to acne concerns. He has a great bedside manner and really makes you feel welcomed and comfortable.

I'm usually tolerant of bad bedside manners but this doctor not only had bad bedside manners but also was very defensive and inappropriate. When asked a few questions about the symptoms and possible causes, maybe he felt uneasy or uncomfortableabout the knowledge he had or lack thereof but he responded with very inappropriate and insulting comments which sounded a lot like a personal attack. It made it very difficult to trust him.

Dr. Kevin had to rush out while meeting with my wife. I understand having other appointments but I will blame his scheduling for a poor experience. While my wife was opening up and trying to share her pain points, the lastthing you want as a patient is a doctor trying to rush out and meet other clients. Very insensitive and came across as if he really didn't care. Never visiting him again

Dr. McMullen will be my go-to, for any dermatology needs in the future! He was pleasant, extremely informative about what the cause of my skin issue was, what stage it was in currently and prescribed medication to help with the healing process. Highly recommended!

I think it's ridiculous to write personal information over and over again. Zoc Doc should provide this information to any offices it books to save time and having to answer the same fields.

Had a procedure that required 2 weeks of at home care. Dr. McMullen is great in person, but if you have any procedure requiring self-care post-procedure, don’t expect the doctor to remember to tell you what to after you leave hisoffice. Proactively and aggressively ask for written instructions for at home care (if necessary for the procedure).

I really like Dr. McMullen! I finally decided to try and do something about my alopecia areata and I was really pleased with Dr. McMullen's bedside manner, and how comfortable he made me feel. I was also pleasantly surprised to findthat he was very skilled at explaining what was happening to me in a way that was really pretty interesting. At the end of the appointment, I was really excited about my treatment (who knew I could ever be excited about my doctor poking me with a needle? That said, he was quite gentle, let me lay down because I was nervous, and it didn't really hurt that bad.) and feeling good about growing my hair back over the next months. I'm looking forward to my follow up appointments and am glad that I am seeing Dr. McMullen.

Dr. McMullen is great! Although the wait time was longer than I'd prefer, he was nothing but professional and kind the entire time. He walked me through every detail of my appointment and was patient and helpful, answering all my questionsand further clarifying when he sensed I was not fully understanding everything.

Great at explaining what is going on and my options. Does a great job with the delicate balance of moving quickly but also making me feel attended to. Some doctors lay out a Chinese menu of options to choose from andmake me think, ‘shouldn’t you tel me? Why do I need to guess my best care?’ He didn’t do this but rather weighed his opinion nicely with the options that existed. I definitely recommend.
