Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. My name is Dr. Summer Young and I’m from the Department of Dermatology. I sincerely hope you will find the following information useful.
I was born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. I left to do my undergraduate studies here in California and went on to pursue a career in medicine. Every day that I come to work affirms my belief that I made the right career choice. I derive a wonderful sense of accomplishment and a great deal pride from helping others. I love being able to share my knowledge about skin conditions as well as my medical expertise with members like you.
Our department staff— from the receptionists to the medical assistants—will greet you with respect and courtesy. The physicians, nurse practitioner, and nurses will strive to provide you with high-quality care. We want not only to treat you, but also to educate you on your condition and involve you as much as possible in your treatment. We do this with caring and compassion, treating you as a family member.
It’s important to me to keep both my mind and my body fit. For my mind, I read a good book, watch a good movie, or spending quality time with my family—whether that’s on vacation or just helping the kids with their studies. I also unwind by talking with my spouse at the end of our busy days. These activities all help keep me on an even keel amid the hectic pace of life. For my body, I exercise, eat right, and practice what I preach to my patients! I also make sure my own doctor visits and screening exams are done. It’s always important to make sure everything checks out okay.
