Dr. Steven Greene
Medical Director, FAAD, Board Certified Dermatologist
I wholeheartedly welcome you to Advanced Dermatology and Laser Institute of Seattle. Our vision was to establish a small private medical and cosmetic dermatology clinic serving all ages and ethnic groups, completely dedicated to the highest standards of medical care and service delivery. We have put together a highly selective and experienced group of health providers who share this vision. We are purposely small, so that we are able to work together like a family guided by a singular focus and passion: to serve you, our dermatology patients, in a manner where you are given the time needed to evaluate your concerns and the time needed to develop and provide you an effective clinical treatment plan. Whether you come to us with eczema or wrinkles or a skin cancer scare, your concerns are our concerns. You will be treated with that old-fashioned quality care combined with providing you the most recent advances in dermatologic services. From the moment you enter our comfortable and inviting reception room and are evaluated in our modern exam rooms equipped with the latest modalities, you can feel assured that you will be listened to, reviewed comprehensively, educated, and treated in a compassionate manner by all our team members. As a clinical dermatologist with over twenty-five years of experience, I personally am on-site daily to provide dermatology care and to supervise our team members ensuring that all our treatments meet and exceed standards of medical care.
I feel so fortunate to have completed my Dermatology residency and fellowship at the renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and have maintained close ties with my fellow colleagues all over the country who continue in their scientific and clinical pursuit of dermatologic excellence. Prior to opening Advanced Dermatology and Laser Institute of Seattle, I spent the last two years training and working alongside the most highly respected dermatology clinicians, researchers, and scientists all over the U.S. enabling me to provide you with the most up-to-date treatment modalities and procedures for medical and cosmetic dermatology.
This is an exciting time in dermatology practice. Clinical research is producing effective results in all kinds of skin conditions and, especially in the area of cosmetic dermatology, allowing my team and me to provide you with the highest level of dermatologic treatments. At our Institute, we are participating with my dermatology colleagues all over the country to discover even more advances and treatment protocols.
I am happy to share my team members’ bios with you below and am very proud that we all share the same mission– to serve you with the highest integrity and care.
Front Office Business and Communications Manager
For the past three years at ADLIS, my role has evolved from working with patients as a Communications Specialist to assisting in our practice’s marketing and administrative needs. A valuable component of ADLIS is education. My love for writing is utilized by providing our patients with educational resources on services, products, and the latest news in all things dermatology. Writing on such a scientifically dynamic topic inspires me to learn more every day. I feel lucky to be surrounded by staff who go above and beyond supporting one another to deliver the highest standards of care. At ADLIS, our employees represent what this practice stands for personable, professional service always!
In my free time I enjoy reading murder mystery novels, attempting crossword puzzles, and exploring nearby Washington destinations like Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Peninsula.

Certified Medical Assistant
Skincare has always been a passion of mine, especially when it pertains to the prevention and treatment of skin cancer. Working at ADLIS has been very fulfilling for me as I get to experience both the clinical and esthetic aspects of dermatology. I thoroughly enjoy patient care and education.
My free time is filled with my children and performing/recording with my band.
