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

A provider’s star rating is based on a Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. In this survey, taken after an office visit, patients answer a series of standardized questions and have the opportunity to provide custom comments. Providence strips identifying information from comments so they can be shared without jeopardizing confidentiality or patient privacy.

Dr. McClelland is caring and respectful and very nice. He always explains things well and answers questions thoroughly. Even though I only see him about once a year and this is only my 3rd visit, he always recognizes me and treats me like his patient rather than someone he isn't familiar with. I feel very well cared for with him.

We discussed whether specialty care was needed or could the provider, provide the care. Based on a biopsy the provider didn't need to make a referral and he will do the care. Good discussion, talked through the options, discussed different specialists if needed. Discussed the biopsy and different things that could be found and the seriousness of a positive result. He is knowledgeable, good listener and was easy to communicate with.

This appointment was a referral from my regular care provider for an initial dermatology exam. I requested this referral. Dr. McClelland was prompt. I found him to be very personable and easy to talk to. He explained what he was doing and what I could expect post exam and took time to listen to my questions and concerns. He also sent a nice follow-up letter.

It's hard to fully rate this provider as it was my first visit to him. I am still concerned as to whether I received the proper treatment for my concern. I had cryosugery on my face, but if it is melanoma then I've heard that the cells won't be able to be tested after being frozen/burned. I hope that I can rest assured everything is well.
