Verified Patient Reviews

Dr. Young is always thoughtful and thorough.
Dr Young was highly recommended by a friend of mine. This dermatologist definitely knows everything about skin!! Also, the office staff members were very friendly and helpful.
Dr Young is excellent in all regards.
Excellent, professional, and personable.
Dr. Young is very speedy but still takes the time to answer questions and explain her reasoning behind prescriptions. She actually looked at my skin closely through an magnifier, and wants to get to the root cause of my symptoms, which not all dermatologists take the time to do.
She was great, I would highly recommend her, she is very knowledgeable and professional.
She is so nice and professional!
I had a very positive experience during my visit to Dr. Young's practice. I arrived and was asked to fill out forms which is pretty standard. Within minutes I was asked to enter a room which was fantastic where the attendant asked for more medical related information on her iPad. She was knowledgeable and very courteous. Afterwards, Dr. Young arrived and she spoke to me like a person. I immediately felt relaxed and at home. She went through my recommended prescriptions and we agreed to a plan that worked for me. Would highly recommend her practice.
Dr. Young was extremely personable, knowledgeable and pretty darn funny. She put me at ease immediately.
Dr. Young is an amazing physician. She is caring and compassionate and takes her time. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new dermatologist.
She was marvelous and completely solved my problem.
Kind, professional, thorough, fabulous office with wonderful staff.
Loved Dr Young! What a lovely person and her staff were equally amazing. So efficient! I was seen ten min before my appointment time and Dr Young tended to my issues there and then. Extremely efficient and skilled. The office is also beautiful which adds to the experience.
So professional! and informative about new products. she has a Great bedside manner and speaks to you with words you can understand. she put me at ease with questions and answers. The staff was also very nice. Only thing..please have some magazines to read and ponder while you wait. would Highly recommend..and have already done so!
This was my first visit, and I felt immediate rapport with Dr. Young and the nurse/medical assistant I met with. I'm African American, and she demonstrated understanding of the particular issues I might have with haircare and skincare as we treat the problem she diagnosed that was affecting both my scalp and my skin. After one day, the treatment she prescribed is already working better than any of the half-dozen things I'd tried researching the problem on my own for nearly a year. I can see and feel a big difference already! I think I've found my dermatologist.
Alison is terrific. She has treated our family for years and we could't be happier.
Very professional, knows what she is doing. Highly recommended
I am a big fan of Dr. Young. Always personable and thorough.
Easy access to parking, lovely new office suite, friendly and professional manner by all of the staff, efficient but very thorough and caring visit. I felt reassured by thorough exam and plan.
Awesome doctor - sharp, efficient, and friendly.
Dr. Young is delightful and brilliant.
Dr. Young was able to quickly diagnose my eczema and was able to explain why it occurs in a way that made sense & what to do about it. I highly recommend her!!
Dr Young was very attentive and listened to my concerns. She explained all my options in detail and educated me on how these medication work. She was very helpful and I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Young is a sweetheart! Takes time and cares about me! I've followed her around for several years.
Ery nice and professional doctor who explained everything.
Professional and welcoming staff and doctor.
I would follow Doctor Young to the ends of the earth. She is knowledgeable and thorough, communicates well with me, and has earned my trust, confidence, and admiration.
She was very, very knowledgeable and walked me through exactly why she was doing what she was doing.
I was early to my appointment and expected to wait so I was pleasantly surprised to be ushered into my appointment very shortly after arriving. Dr. Young was very friendly and very thorough with my exam. She seems very knowledgeable about her field of work and explained everything in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend her.
She was trying to be nice, but there was little personality click between us. She also seemed too by the book. Sometimes patients have weird drug interactions that aren't normal, and it would be better for doctors to take our word into careful consideration instead of being dismissive. Sure, patients get stuff wrong, but we have one big advantage -- we've lived in our bodies our whole lives. This cannot be understated since statistics get you only so far. There will always be weird cases, sometimes things that studies don't find or only find rarely. Sometimes something found by a study, and experienced by the patient, will look like one thing on paper but another in real life. That said, I was happy with the outcome of the appointment. I got to that outcome because of knowledge of treatments from my own experiences that a lot of patients won't have though or may not be confident enough to stand by. She made sure to reinforce calling right away if adverse symptoms started occurring, and I appreciate that. I would put her as "Average" based on this first experience, but the question was "Would you recommend?". I'm not usually going to recommend "average", which is why I went for a two star instead of three star rating.
When you leave Dr Young's office you know you have been treated by a true professional. She is thorough, very personable and most of all trusted.
Dr Young is both extremely professional and extremely warm. She listens and is attentive. I have seen her for many years now and I do not plan on seeing anyone else for my dermatology needs.

Dr. Young was great, really cleared up a concern I had with a dermatological issue.
Dr. Young is very knowledgeable about dermatology, but isn't judgmental about lack of skincare. I find her very easy to talk to about skin issues and any other related health concerns. She doesn't waste your time - yet is very thorough in her examination. She has a sweet disposition and is genuinely concerned about her patients well being.
Dr. Alison Young listens, is kind and caring, knowledgeable (has a PhD and MD) and highly competent. I have great confidence in her abilities and expertise.
It was such a pleasure to meet this enthusiastic, highly intelligent professional. I felt well cared for and have never been checked more thoroughly for skin anomalies. I am so grateful for this attentiveness to detail and the deep kindness with which I was treated. The staff was equally personable, polite and efficient.
Dr. Young is one of the few best doctors I have met in my whole life. Extremely caring, professional and informative. I see her for my facial rosacea and skin moles, and I consider myself lucky to have met with such a great doctor. Highly recommended!
I've followed Dr. Young for about the past 6 years. She is #1, an amazing and very caring human being. Right behind that, she is an incredible physician!

Dr Young has a warm and open bedside manner. In addition, she is a superb dermatologist and always explains things in a way that is easy for me to understand.
I am a long-term patient of Dr Young and would not trust my health to anyone else. When it comes to skin cancer you need a physician who truly understands the preventative measures and why they're important. Dr Young is meticulous and thorough and I always leave knowing that if there were any early signs of cancer they would have been found and, if my scan is clear, I can rest easy knowing that nothing was missed. You can't ask for better than that.
Alison was very knowledgeable about all of my skincare needs and talked through a very thorough regimen. She was super friendly, would highly recommend.
She was fantastic, and was impressed with the office as a whole. I had an end of the day appointment and was seen right on time!
Dr Young is very thorough with my annual screening. She takes extra time to explain proper application of prescriptions. Very personable, marks for all interactions.
Today was my first appointment with Dr. Young and her office. Both she and her staff exceeded my expectations! I have met very few doctors who have taken the time to make me feel comfortable, to explain every thing to me in detail and in a way I can understand, and to perform her examination so carefully and respectfully. I especially appreciated all of the information she was so willing to provide me. I will be sure to happily return for her expertise and services.
She was very professional and efficient.
Dr. Young was great! Very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Walked me through all of my options and didn't force me down one specific path, but guided me and gave her professional perspective on what she thought was best.

Besides being a delightful person, Dr. Young is the most qualified dermatologist I have ever met. I sought her out because of her specialization in melanoma. She is incredibly pleasant and knows her stuff. A++
I was called in within 5min. The facility is extremely nice and clean. Nursing staff was great. The doctor stayed with me for a good 30min. I went in with more than one ailment and expected to have to come back for a second appointment to cover things. Dr. Young took her time, covered everything, explaining everything in detail to me - what was wrong, underlying cause, effects etc.. and even instantly scheduled a shot I needed, instead of having me come back. Highly recommend!!
Dr Found is the best dermatologist ever!
She was very knowledgeable about my condition, and did a great job explaining the condition, and the treatment, to me. Very friendly staff too!
I really enjoy Alison as a person. The office is really beautiful and the front desk staff is lovely. Beyond that I'm seeing great results as I work to combat adult hormonal acne and feel like I am in the best hands.
Excellent. Highly knowledgeable, would see her again.
She is wonderful. She doesn't talk down to you really explains everything
She was great! Answered all my questions and didn't feel rushed at all. Would go back for any dermatology issues. She ordered more blood work to be thorough which I appreciated.
Great office! From the time I walked in (as a new patient) to the time Dr. Young came into the exam room was probably 10 minutes. The doctor was very welcoming. She explained everything very clearly and made sure I understood. I would highly recommend Dr. Young!
Dr. Young and her staff are all amazing on every level. Friendly, communicative, patient, and truly experts in their fields, just look at their resumes! Not only have I gone to her for 4+ years where she has taken excellent care of all my needs, but she also treats my husband and our two children. Never rushed and she always makes sure we completely and totally understand what has been discussed at our appointment. I honestly feel like family when I go and can’t say enough about how impressed we all are and how much we trust her to take care of us. She is a gift and a blessing to the medical community and the patients who entrust their health to a brilliant and compassionate woman.
Very warm and friendly. Promptly came up with a diagnosis and treatment plan and even went above and beyond to help me with issues the appointment was not originally scheduled for. Absolutely stunning office and very friendly staff. Walked away from the appointment feeling peace of mind (also with a healthy amount of samples).
I love her! She is smart, caring, and funny! I've been her patient for many years.
Dr. Young has been super sweet and very useful!

Amazing bedside manners and patient education. Highly recommend
Wonderfully pleasant, warm and thoroughly attentive physician. Quickly diagnosed and effectively addressed my areas of concern. I would highly recommend Dr. Young to anyone looking for great experience.
Dr. Young is a fantastic doctor. Very knowledgable and friendly.
My first visit I was motivate. I have rashes on my face from an bad allergy and scalp pain from a biopsy. Dr told me to come back in 4 weeks. I returned two weeks later. My second visit was unsatisfactory. Dr told me I came back too soon but the meds did not help stop the itching on my face and I still have scalp pain. Dr increase one topical to 2x a day for rash on my face. Then told me I had pimples which wasn't mention on my first visit. Also, Told me keep shampoo my scalp to stop the itch. Nothing is given for scalp pain so that why I returned. Because I didn't return in 4 weeks, but two weeks, the dr told me to return in 8 weeks. So, I'm not sure if this is a good patient-doctor relationship. I was hoping for the best.
I think she is great. Very personable and efficient.
Dr. Young is an amazing physician. She takes her time and listens. I highly recommend her to anyone needing dermatology care.
Although I got rough news from Dr. Young, I respected and agreed with her medical advice. She was thorough without being condescending, and took every precaution to make sure no stone was left unturned. Her optimism was very reassuring, and made me feel hopeful about an extreme regimen. As someone who has dealt with many a dermatologist, I found Dr. Young to strike the right combination of educational, personable and direct. I definitely plan to stick with her for the duration of my treatment.
Doctor Young is, in a word Outstanding. She is the professional that most aspire to be.

Dr. Young has an excellent bedside manner, and takes the time to explain what she's doing, and why. She has a very pleasant demeanor, speaks articulately and intelligently but never over the heads of those of us without medical knowledge. She has always greeted us with a handshake and a smile. When she moved from her previous practice, we tracked her down and followed her.
Dr Young is a "super star" in her profession.
Dr. Young is so friendly, excited to explain the cool science behind skin, and really considerate and thorough in her approach to treating skin problems. I hope that the treatment works, but regardless I was so impressed with the service and friendly attitude of everyone in the office. :)
Dr. Young is incredibly knowledgeable, personable and thorough. I saw her today for a skin cancer screening. It is reassuring that she is also a pathologist. A+
Excellent listener, detail oriented, compassionate with a desire to provide the cause/ reason for the symptoms vs only treating the symptoms.

My consultation with Dr. Young was very helpful and informative. It was a pleasure meeting with her.
I had a really great experience. Dr. Young is really kind and patient as well as very knowledgeable about skin care.
(Because when looking through reviews, this is what I had hoped to have found.) I have been struggling so hard to find a doctor I could trust enough to go through with a perscription for my acne. I'm terrified it'll be something that will make it even worse, as I have sensitive skin and have never delt with something like this before. I told her everything I'd tried, my concerns, etc. Just upon seeing irritation on my ears (clearly caused by wearing Fake earrings) we jumped right into a patch test, to see what specific chemicals and materials upset my skin, thus ensuring if we try a product and it doesn't work, or it the acne keeps increasing, it won't be because of something IN the product. Which was my biggest worry!! I feel in very good hands, and have high hopes for my skin's future.
She was amazing! Very helpful!
There was some kind of issue with the check in and I waited longer than is ideal, but the Dr. herself was excellent. Did a great job explaining her though process and steps she was taking. Think we were a little rushed due to the check in mishap, but overall a great visit.
I come from California for my appointments with Dr. Young
Doctor Young is an amazing doctor. Every time i've gone to see her she was able to give me answers right away and treat my conditions/problems. She seems very knowledgable and experienced.

One of the best doctors ive been to and I would highly reccomend her to anyone.
She is so nice and seems to be knowing in depth.
Dr. Young is a wonderful doctor who listens and I felt comfortable in her knowledge and expertise during her visit. She was recommended by co-workers and is well liked by them and now me! Strongly recommend her.

My visit with Dr. Alison Young, MD, PhD. was a very positive experience for me.

I can only recommend her to anyone who would like to meet a Doctor who still cares ! Thank you Dr. Alison Young! D.H.
Dr. Young is the absolute best, I'm so happy I found her new office. She is so knowledgeable and most importantly makes you feel so comfortable.
Dr. Young was very friendly and professional and I would definitely recommend seeing her!
Professional and courteous, went to great lengths to explain things in layperson's terms. Also, serious and concerned as appropriate, but a great dose of not taking herself too seriously (which some doctors, unfortunately, do).
I strongly believe that she is the best dermatologist in Seattle.
Very thorough, professional and attentive. Me cae bien.
She is bright, intelligent and explains everything extremely well.

Dr.Young is a best in class professional
Friendly, clear, and professional. A great experience in every way.
I had a very positive experience. Dr. Young is very thorough, friendly, and professional. I was there for a skin check, there were a few areas of concern so she did a quick biopsy and froze something on my cheek but I was in and out in under a half an hour (but it didn't seem rushed at all). I would highly recommend visiting her.
Dr. Young was quick, throrough and really caring. I love this Dr's office and they are lucky to have such a lovely Dr who cares about her patients. She even asked if there was anything else that I needed to discuss which does not happen as most Dr's are in such a hurry. I would highly recommend Dr. Young!
I am so happy I found her!!! I think the world of her as a physician and her bedside manner is exceptional. Thank you for asking!
Excellent! Timely, professional, and brilliant physician. Spent time with me and discussed everything without being in a rush.
She was so nice and funny! She made a joke about my condition being only "skin deep". She also was really professional and knew what she was taking about.
Dr. Young is the very best there is. When she moved to her new offices, all of her patients put out an all-points-bulletin to find where she was moving. She is that good. She also has a wonderful personality, good sense of humor, and a great bedside manner.
Dr Young is extremely knowledgeable, she explains everything so that you can understand.

Best Doctor I have ever had
Dr, Young was happy to explain in detail every step of the process, she did a lot of work and explaining for a first visit, I have already recommended her to a friend.
Very friendly, thorough, and knowledgable. More focused on fixing symptoms than root causes (as most doctors seem to be), but less-so than most. I was given some lifestyle pointers on how to more naturally fix my skin issues, which was nice.
Dr. Alison Young is an outstanding dermatologist. I have seen her for approximately 4 years, and am always impressed with her thoroughness, attention to detail, explanations, and super-friendly personality. I cannot recommend Dr. Young highly enough!
