I think Dr. McDonough was professional and I’d recommend him. If there is going to be another one of his staff in the room while getting a full body exam, he should ask the patient if that is ok. It wasawkward having someone else besides a doctor in the examination room.

There was only one other staff working there and she was in charge of checking people in and out and also she was the nurse/tech that takes the patient to the room... she did the best she could but you canimagine how much later my actual appointment ended up being even with only two or three other patients in the office. He is kind of loud in an obnoxious way and didn’t even bother to sit. Walked in, talked down to me as I was sitting then walked out- I think a total of 3 minutes (max!). My skin journey is way too important.

I've been to several dermatologis, over the last 18 months, for skin issues. Dr. McDonough was extremely positive, confident in his diagnosis and provided a clear action plan, all while being charming. Everything you could ask for in a doctor.Unlike my other dermatologists, I will continue to see Dr. McDonough for any skin related issues.

The staff did not take time to check the insurance. It took me 20mins to do their job. That is not good for the doctor the staff is a reflection of him. Next time may be they can be more accuratewhen processing insurance. Also the blond in front office was not really being helpful to the other employee when she was asked a question. You could tell the younger lady was new, but the older one did not seem like she wanted to help. She answered questions with one word answers for something that clearly needed to be explained. She should not be the first person you see, she should be spending her day making sure the insurance is correct. Thank you
