Biography & Education

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.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

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.

05/29/2017

05/07/2017
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.

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.

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.

11/14/2016
It was difficult getting an appointment to see the doctor to establish care. I was on a waiting list but never got in.
100

11/09/2016
The Medical Assistant was rude, tired and not polite. When she called my name out to go to the exam room to begin my appointment she was not even visible- she hid behind a wall and did not have any eye contact with me as she hollered out my name to everyone in the lobby-- I thought it was like a cattle call. She had no desire to know me, care for me or ease my way as a patient. I also was there to have a special test I thought and there was a mix up- the Dr. said it was a visit about the special test.... as it turns out the equipment to do the test was not operational in this new site at Bridgeport.
100

11/09/2016
He was exceptional and helpful
100

10/26/2016

Dr McClelland is a fantastic doctor. He took care of my needs quickly and efficiently. Not only was he on time, he is a skilled surgeon who performed minor surgery on me. I told him I was squeamish and he was prepared in case I fainted. He earned my trust.

In my opinion, all my providence Doctors have been very efficient and understanding with my health and well being. They are easy to talk with as I am a retired HR Manager and believe me, I know people! Wish I would have found them prior to my first visit years ago!
90

10/10/2016
Dr.M is a great doc. He even remembered me from my last visit 3 years ago. My only "concern" is that this office was booked weeks out, so it took more than a month to see him. Aso, had I waited much longer to see him, I was told I would have been considered a new patient, which could have delayed my appointment further.
100

10/06/2016
Dr. McClelland is my dermatologist. He has taken care of me regarding a family history of skin cancer. I trust him and he always takes the time to answer any questions I have.
