Dermatology Arts' Dr. Casey Carlos, MD, PhD named Seattle Met Magazine 2019 Top Doctor

Congratulations to Dermatology Arts’ very own Dr. Casey Carlos for being voted “TOP DOCTOR” for the 2019 Seattle Met Magazine! Medical professionals in the Seattle metropolitan area nominated other medical professions in various specialties to be considered for the honor. Among dermatologists, Dr. Carlos was among the top vote recipients of the King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce Counties.

In 2018, Seattle Met asked Washington State licensed health care providers “If you or a loved one needed care, whom would you choose?” Responses considered years of experience, patient satisfaction, and more. The 14th annual list for 2019 asked similar questions and was recently published on seattlemet.com

Dr. Carlos went to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh, where she also received her PhD. After her training, she went on to be Chief Resident at the University of Pennsylvania, then residency program co-director at the University of California San Diego. Our team at Dermatology Arts was proud to welcome her in 2016, and now, we are even more proud to have her here as Top Doctor.

Do You Use Protection?

Did you know UV exposure is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer? The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends taking many precautions when going out in the sun. It’s important to minimize sun exposure and maximize protection. Enjoy a play on words in this video by the AAD

Summary:

  • Seek shade during times of peak sun rays

  • Wear protective clothing like hats and sunglasses. Pro-tip from Dermatology Arts: Use SPF shirts and shorts for water activities (for example. rash guards / swim shirts have a UPF / SPF equivalent)

  • Apply minimum SPF 30, broad spectrum, and water resistant sunscreen

  • Reapply sunscreen every hour on the hour when outside
