Biography

Dr. Matthew McClelland understands the importance of listening to his patients. “Successful communication in the clinic starts with a physician who takes the time to carefully listen and understand the patient’s concerns,” he says. “My interaction with patients is what makes me excited to go to work each day.”

Practicing dermatology appealed to Dr. McClelland because of the wide variety of diseases and age groups he is able to treat. He enjoys getting to know his patients and their families, and treats all his patients with integrity and respect.

After completing his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, Dr. McClelland earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in Charlottesville, Va. He completed his internship at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News, Va., and his residency at the University of Minnesota Department of Dermatology in Minneapolis, Minn.

Married with five children, Dr. McClelland enjoys watching and playing sports, and spending time with his family.

There were three guys at the front desk checking in and two of them were extremely cold and didn't answer my questions. The third guy however, was very friendly and gave me good information. It was not pleasant until I spoke to the third guy.

Dr McClelland is always excellent. He listens intently, always willing to take time when needed. Consistently is concerned about my care and provides excellent advice. I feel very! Confident in the care he provides, so much so that even when I moved where there would be more convenient providers I STILL travel to see him instead!

Wait time was about 35 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. I arrived and checked in 15 minutes before my scheduled appointment. Doctor seemed rushed and only spent about 2 or 3 minutes total looking me over (this was a skin cancer screening) and part of that time he spent explaining to the nurse on how to take down notes.

I made and appointment with this doctor because I was tired of seeing another dermatologist who did not make me feel respected in any way. It was an excellent choice and it proves to me that as a patient I do not have to put up with doctors who do not treat me well. My experience with Dr. McClelland was excellent and I don't have to dread seeing him when I need a dermatologist.

I thought I would have a wait for my 2:00pm appt. (based on the number of people in the waiting room). I was pleasantly surprised in that I was admitted about 1:55pm; questions were asked or confirmed since my last appt.; and the Dr. walked in at 2:02pm. I congratulated him/them or their timelyness.

The last time I called to get an immediate appointment with Dr. McClelland because I was having post surgery problems, the person who answered my phone call was not at all accommodating to my urgent request and wouldn't give me an appointment until 7 days later. I called back the next day and talked to a different person and she told me to come in right away and that I would be taken care of. I did this and was well taken care of by the nurse and Dr. McClelland.

for a providence provider I got more time than usual I was the first appointment of his day and was able to start early. I was impressed with having him burn off a what he thought was cancer on my lip on the first and only appointment I have had with him instead of rescheduling it for later.

For dermatology, the 15 minute appt time slots do impose limits on removal of more than one suspicious lesion during the appt.

The dermatologist that we had before moving to Oregon was much more thorough and took a lot of time to check over my skin for potential problems. I liked this doctor-he was very personable-but rushed through the exam and I didn't feel confident that I was free of sun damaging issues.

My care providers and my PCP (Dr. Blome) are GREAT but scheduling an appointment is a nightmare. My dissatisfaction is NOT with the doctors, nurses, receptionists etc. However, when I call to schedule and appointment both my husband and I have had to wait on hold for over 1/2 hour on numerous occasions while we try to speak with someone. This is not acceptable. [...] I believe the people answering the phones are doing the best they can and they are always friendly but they obviously cannot hire the volume of calls you receive. [...]
