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.

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.

Personable and very easy to establish rapport with because he has an easy-going pleasant personality. He is interested in me and wants to be sure that my skin condition is monitored regularly. In other words he has a good bedside manner.

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. [...]
