I saw Dr. Abson over the course of about 4 months. Her various treatment plans ruined and traumatized my skin. She did not take the time or effort to identify a suitable treatment plan for my acne and instead prescribed harsh retinoids and cortisone creams. Due to the extreme sensitivity of my skin, I have now developed perioral dermatitis and require antibiotics and approx. 6 weeks of recovery because of her careless prescriptions. Chronic use of steroid creams on sensitive, rosacea and acne-prone skin causes the skin to become red, irritated and also develop dilated blood vessels on face which is PERMANENT damage that I cannot afford to fix via laser therapy. I would highly recommend Dr. Young at Seattle Associates of Dermatology. She quickly recognized the problem and took me off retinoids/steroids to soothe my skin and get it back to its healthy state. Dr. Abson seems irritated by patients, barely spends a 10 minutes with them, and seems annoyed everytime you ask a question. I understand that dermatologists deal with much more life-threatenning problems such as skin cancer, but treating acne is also an integral part of dermatological practices and should be treated with care, instead of blindly pushing pharmaceuticals without individualized treatment. I would not recommend Dr. Abson for acne care.
My whole family sees Dr Abson. I think she is funny and very good at what she does. She always offers reasonable advice about products - has saved me a ton of money at the make-up counter. She also gives very clear instructions with all medications and products.
