Carla J. Bauman, M.D., M.P.H.

Dr. Carla Bauman is board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology and has a special interest in pediatric dermatology. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Stanford University and her Doctorate of Medicine from Harvard Medical School. While completing her residency at the University of Washington, she simultaneously earned a Master of Public Health degree. Outside the office, she is an active member of her community and enjoys spending time with her family.

“I see the patient-doctor relationship as a team approach where the diagnosis and treatment plans are linked to the type of dermatologic disease and its impact on the patient’s life and functioning. I am continually honored and humbled to be serving the dermatologic needs of this astonishing Seattle community and believe that patient education, compassion, and personalized treatment make each dermatology visit rewarding and effective.”

Dr. Elizabeth Hughes, M.D.

Dr. Hughes received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University, graduating cum laude with a degree in classics. She then attended medical school at the University Of Virginia followed by an internship in internal medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and dermatology residency at Stanford University, where she was chief resident.

After completing residency, she joined the Stanford teaching faculty and was the associate chief of dermatology at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, California. In 2008, she moved to Seattle and worked first at Pacific Medical Centers, and then at Group Health Cooperative, where she pioneered the teledermatology program.

In addition to practicing dermatology, Dr. Hughes has a passion for mind-body medicine. She believes that is best accomplished by blending the scientific advances of Western medicine with the practices and philosophy of Eastern medicine. Working as a health coach, she supports people facing life-altering diagnoses and chronic illnesses, helping them to optimize their ability to heal and recover.
