Specialties

Dr. Alison Z Young has the following 2 specialties

  • Dermatopathology

    A dermatopathologist is an expert in both dermatology and pathology. They specialize in diseases related to the skin, but where a dermatologist would examine a potentially-cancerous mole by looking at it, a dermatopathologist would examine your skin cells in a lab, more like a pathologist.
    Beyond just skin cancer, dermatopathologists also study a wide range of skin conditions, including everything from warts, moles, spider veins and herpes, to dermatitis, rashes, vitiligo and other conditions related to skin discoloration.

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

Three Stars

My husband and I went together for a full skin exam with Dr. Young. We thought she was outstanding however we did not know her assistant was going to remain in the room the whole time during our exams. This was a horribly uncomfortable experience to be completely naked while the doctor's assistant was looking on, especially for my husband. The office should consider a partial curtain for the patients comfort. We don't feel it's necessary for the assistant to view our bodies the whole time while the doctor is trying to examine our private areas. When my husband called to cancel his follow up appointment due to an illness, the office staff was completely rude to him and would not let him rebook. We absolutely loved Dr. Young, however not worth the drive to Seattle with such rude treatment by the front office staff and lack of comfort during our initial exams. Unfortunately, they just lost 2 patients.
