About SkinStatMD

Our Why

SkinStatMD is dedicated to providing teledermatology, acute care visits, and health coaching.  The term “STAT” reflects the fact that we want to provide accessible telehealth services that YOU can schedule with just a few clicks.

About the founder: Dr. Towolawi is a board certified family physician who has practiced for over ten years in the Seattle area. She received her undergraduate degree in Human Biology from Stanford University. She then completed her medical training at the University of Washington- where she currently holds a clinical faculty appointment. She is a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. She is also an associate member of the Skin of Color Society.

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. As a result, she created a platform centered on the dermatology needs of Black patients.

Dr. Towolawi prefers a multi-targeted approach to your skin,hair and wellness concerns. She focuses on how lifestyle habits can affect your general health and pushes prevention -instead of pills – as the first step. All initial teledermatology and coaching visits are one hour. She wants to spend time getting to know YOU and all of the factors that play into your health. She truly wants you to glow from the INSIDE OUT !

At SkinStat MD we look forward to empowering YOU to become your own change agent!
