I have been a devoted patient of Alison Young, MD, for 4-6 years, having followed her from Virginia Mason to Dermatology Associates of Seattle to her present position at Spectrum. I followed Dr. Young for a reason: she is simply the best, across the spectrum! Most of my issues have concerned skin disorders on the face and lips, doubtless the product of a life lived hell bent in pursuit of sunshine and in reckless disregard of the toll unprotected exposure to the sun can exact. During the course of multiple visits over the years, Dr. Young has never failed to diagnose, treat, counsel and console regarding my various skin conditions correctly, properly and with respect. Most importantly, she has made it a professional point always to be available to address my perceived crises, both real and imagined. Thank you, Dr. Young, I am eternally grateful. You are a class person and a true professional!
