What Our Patients Say

“Dr. Thompson is diligent in seeking out what is “not quite right” with my skin and has found three melanomas with her careful, watchful eyes. I know she knows my body spots better than I do and I thank her forever for being the caring physician she is. Dr. Thompson is my hero.”


I’ve been going to Dr. Dianne Thompson for nearly 20 years now and I believe I’m seeing the best dermatologist in Seattle. Dr. Thompson is professional, thorough, reassuring and puts me at ease while she exams my complicated, sun-damaged skin.

She is always careful in her analysis of whether or not a mole requires treatment, removal and/or surgery. I think it’s rare to find a doctor that spends the time and energy to get to know her patients.

Northwest Skin Specialists office setting is warm, clean and modern. The office staff is very friendly and professional too. Overall, it’s a positive experience from start to finish.


“Amy Sarkie was so cool and easy-going with our three embarrassed teenage sons who had been attacked in varying degrees by teenager skin– to the point that it was affecting one of our son’s entire social life and confidence. She made it all go away and he was so much happier! They all were. As for my husband and me, and our weird middle- age skin problems, she listened patiently and prescribed effectively. I started last year with clear skin for the first time in decades. I am so grateful. Definitely go see Northwest Skin Specialists. They’re amazing!”


“From the friendly staff and the breathtaking panoramic view of Capitol Hill you get from the waiting room to their expert, professional care in the examining room, Northwest Skin Specialists gives you first-class treatment.. You also get peace of mind.  Dr. Grabowski and his associates are simply the best.”


“I trust Northwest Skin Specialists for all of my dermatological needs. From the warm reception at the front desk, to the helpful staff and considerate care I receive from Amy Sarkie, PA-C, I am a 100% satisfied patient for life.”


“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Dianne Thompson for quite some time at NW Skin Specialists. From annual skin exams to some minor dermatology surgery, their care and overall professionalism is superb. I find that NW Skin Specialists is one of the top dermatology clinics in Seattle and would recommend any one of their physicians from annual skin exams to thoroughness of dermatopathology.  A professional and caring skin care clinic all around.”


“Our experiences at Northwest Skin Specialists have been fantastic. It is a beautiful space with friendly and helpful staff. Dr. Grabowski makes our annual exams informative. He helps us think about preventive skincare for our whole family!”

“I have been seeing Dr Thompson and Amy Sarkie since long before Northwest Skin Specialists opened and I would follow them anywhere. They take such good care of my skin, with thorough annual exams. They explain in a calm and reassuring way if they find something that might need attention and take the time to answer any questions I might have. They are always on time, I never feel rushed, and they have a very warm and friendly staff.”
