Meet the Physician
Dr. Towolawi created SkinStatMD after experiencing her personal frustrations seeking dermatology care in the Seattle area. She often had to wait weeks to be seen and was misdiagnosed at times. She felt that access to medical advice relevant to deeper skin tones was limited in the Pacific Northwest. SkinStatMD was created as a way to close this gap.
Dr. Towolawi prefers a multi-targeted approach to your skin, hair and aesthetic concerns. She focuses on how lifestyle habits can affect your general health and pushes prevention -instead of pills – as the first step. All initial visits are one hour. "It is ALWAYS more than just skin" at SkinStatMD. Dr. Towolawi wants to spend time getting to know YOU and all of the factors that play into your health.
She is a faculty member at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She is also a member of the Skin of Color Society, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
