Second time visit for me - needing a procedure that had me mortified. Dr. McDonough and his staff walked me through each step with a manner of care and ease that I can’t praise enough. It was his goal to ensurethat everything was as pain free and possible and I am so grateful for that. I highly recommend that you visit.

First, the office staff was very pleasant. I am a new patient and opted to submit my paperwork online through ZocDoc in order to save time in the office (I went in on my lunch break). Although they seemed to begetting slightly backed up with patients in the waiting area, I was whisked away to my room after only about 5mins of waiting by one of the front desk techs/nurses in order to help speed things along. (She mentioned they were short-staffed today.) I explained to her the reason for my visit, and immediately after she stepped out Dr. McDonough stepped in. I elaborated a little bit more on my situation and he jumped right in with medicated solutions, and sent me on my way. All in all, I would say I spent about 10-15mins max in the office and I was VERY happy about getting back to work so quickly. The only con that I would point out is that my time was so short with the Dr, that I didn't even think to check out his skin :). I will be able to elaborate more once I see how my skin does under his care.

This was the fastest derm appointment I've ever had. Dr. McDonough's team was friendly, called me right back and after a few minutes of talking with the PA, the Dr. came in. He immediately eased my concerns and was incredibly knowledgeablein explaining the plan of action. I was out of the office with a prescription in less than 30 minutes. 10/10

The doc was great. Clear, efficient, and pleasant. I did have to request the cost of specific treatments he was suggesting (he didn't volunteer the info when outlining my options), but other than that small hiccup and the short wait, itwas a great visit and I'm very happy with the care I received.

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.
