Dr. Allison M Swanson has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
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.

Dr. Swanson and her staff are Awesome! I received distressing news to me, in regards to my daughter and Dr. Swanson put my mind at rest and assured me and my daughter that, eventually, everything will fade and there are steps we can take to help my daughter in the future. I was stressed and I sincerely appreciate everything Dr. Swanson and her staff have done to follow up and treat my daughter. I would highly recommend Dr. Swanson to all my friends.
Dr Swanson takes a personal interest in me as a patient and person and has always taken the time to listen to my concerns and explain the pros and cons of any procedure. I have full confidence in her recommendations regarding trying different treatments to avoid and treat skin cancers. She does meticulous work and I have had minimal to zero scarring after a procedure.
I was referred to Dr. Swanson by my primary care physician for excision of a carcinoma. She is very professional and personable. She explained everything thoroughly and addressed all of my questions. The procedure went well and reports came back clean. I was very satisfied with Dr. Swanson's care and the entire office staff.
Dr Swanson has alway been straight up with me while also being nice. This is a good combination. Frankly, wouldn't go anywhere else.
