“I really enjoy educating my patients and developing a simple, straight forward approach to skin care, helping each individual strengthen their skin health and regain their inner beauty.”
Dr. Yazan Alghalith, MD, FAAD
Growing up in a small town in Missouri, Dr. Yazan Alghalith was able to watch his mother, a family medicine physician, form meaningful long-lasting connections with her patients. The sense of community that she fostered inspired him to become a doctor himself. Now as a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Alghalith has the opportunity to make a true difference in the lives of his patients. It may entail removing skin cancer found during an annual skin exam, softening the signs of aging with cosmetic treatments, or using the most up-to-date treatments available; such as biologic therapy for psoriasis. It could be developing a skincare regimen to treat acne or exploring options for hair loss restoration. Whatever the skin condition or concern may be, Dr. Alghalith is able to foster that same small-town sense of community, providing compassion, knowledge and experience to help each patient achieve healthy, glowing skin.
His practice encompasses medical dermatology as well as surgical and cosmetic procedures. A unique strength of our practice at Burt & Will Plastic Surgery and Dermatology is that each physician is able to bring their individual skills, knowledge and expertise together and collaborate on a tailored plan for certain treatment scenarios. He also strongly believes in a personalized holistic approach. Meaning
all aspects of wellness are addressed, such as sleep, stress, diet and exercise to achieve the radiant results patients are seeking.
Dr. Alghalith completed his dermatology residency training and internship in internal medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he also attended medical school. Prior to medical school, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Truman State University in his hometown of Kirksville, MO. During his training, he served as chief resident, was awarded for his outstanding teaching, volunteered at a student-run clinic for the underserved and contributed to dermatologic literature.
While away from the clinic, Dr. Alghalith loves playing his electric guitar, fashion, collecting sneakers and enjoying Mediterranean cuisine.
