A Message from Saryna Young, MD
I founded Young Skin, LLC during the COVID-19 pandemic with the idea of bringing dermatology access directly in the hands and homes of patients.
In 2020 the virus hit and social distancing precluded the practice of most live dermatology services. The bright side of the sudden transition to telehealth was that the video visit format connected the patient and doctor directly. Virtual visits cut out a lot of the layers of scheduling difficulties in the office visit format such as taking time off from work, traffic frustrations and wait times due to volume of patients in the office setting. The video visit re-elevated the doctor-patient relationship to its rightful position as the most important factor.
When the pandemic eventually dissipates, sustaining these ideals in the format of both telederm visits and in-person office care will be of the greatest priority as many healthcare facilities march towards a corporate medical model. At Young Skin, the dermcare team strives to be prepared, professional and personable during every patient visit.
