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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

I felt very comfortable with this physician. He explained what he was doing and what he was finding.

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.

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

01/24/2017
Dr. McClellan is a very informative, caring Dermatologist. I have recommended him a few times.

I have had very good experiences with the dermatology clinic...knowledgeable, responsive, informative, and timely.

12/13/2016
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

12/13/2016
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.

12/13/2016
I have rarely encountered a doctor as caring and sensitive to my needs as Dr. McClelland has been.

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

11/08/2016
He was exceptional and helpful
100

11/08/2016
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.

10/25/2016
Nothing to comment on other than great service and pleasant people I came in contact with.

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.

10/09/2016
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.

10/05/2016

The chair/table for my excision (basel cell carcinoma) was not well-suited. I had difficulty laying face-down. Should have been more like a massage table with place for face to go through opening of head-rest. [...]

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.
