Waco, Texas – Dr. Young McMahan joins U.S. Dermatology Partners at its Waco location on August 7, 2017. Dr. McMahan, a Texas native, earned her undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. She returned to her home state to attend medical school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, where she received a research fellowship grant from the American Pediatric Society. Dr. McMahan completed her internship in San Antonio at the University of Texas Health Science Center and went on to complete her dermatology residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where she served as chief resident.
Dr. McMahan has authored and co-authored nearly two dozen publications and took on several community leadership and mentorship roles during her studies, including a two-year term as a board member for the Texas Dermatological Society. She volunteers as often as she can, eager to pay forward the kindness she received growing up.
Dr. McMahan is passionate about providing physical healing for her patients and relishes the emotional healing that often follows. She is particularly interested in skin cancer, skin cancer surgery and skin aging.
She is fascinated by the depth and complexity of dermatology. “I love how people’s skin tells the story of their lives,” says Dr. McMahan. “You just have to take the time to look at it.”
Dr. McMahan enjoys traveling, practicing yoga, cooking (and eating) and spending time with her family and dog. She and her husband, Dr. Cody McMahan, have a young son and are thrilled to settle in Waco, near Cody’s family and his beloved Baylor Bears. She’s eager to become a part of the community.
Dr. McMahan will begin seeing patients August 7, 2017.
