About Our OFfice

Our Mission

To provide personalized, compassionate, and responsible high-quality healthcare.

Welcome to Dermatology and Allergy Specialists of Olympia

We opened our door on July 1st, 2001.  Our practice was founded by Drs. Mark Bauer, Sukanya Kanthawatana and Shauna Richert following the close of Memorial Clinic where they were practicing physicians.   We are blessed with the best staff in medical practice some of whom, such as Jennifer Winter, PA-C,  joined the founding doctors from Memorial Clinic.

As the demand for our services grows and to ensure high-quality services, we have added more practitioners to our office.  Sarra Vashchenko, PA-C joined our practice in 2004.  In July 2009, we were fortunate to have Dr. Jake Bauer joined us which added a much needed service, Mohs Micrographic Surgery, to our local community. Dr. Michael Elm, joined our dermatology practice in July 2014 after a successful career in U.S. Army Medical Corps.   Samantha Ferguson, PA-C joined us in 2015.   Our latest addition, Dr. Linda Brown, served for 10 years  as chief of the Allergy and Immunology department at the Madigan Army Medical center before retiring at the rank of Colonel after 25 years of distinguished service in the US Army Medical Corps.

Our main office and dermatology clinic are located just west of downtown Olympia at 304 West Bay Dr. NW, Suite 301    Our allergy clinic is located two blocks north of St. Peter Hospital at 703 Lilly Road NE (across from Group Health)

Our dedicated physicians and staff are looking forward to providing you with personalized, compassionate, highest-quality healthcare.

Welcome to our clinic.

Warm Regards,

The Doctors and Staff
