Get to know Dermatologist Dr. Robert P. Young, who serves patients in North Logan, Utah.
Passionate about skin care and helping people look and feel their best, Dr. Young sees patients at his private practice, Rocky Mountain Dermatology, in North Logan, Utah.
From rashes to melanoma, Rocky Mountain Dermatology is equipped to handle all patients’ dermatological needs.

He served as an officer in the U.S. Navy for several years, during which time he traveled extensively and even lived several years abroad. However, when he first visited Cache Valley, he knew almost immediately it was the right place for him to settle down with his family.

Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body. Dermatology is a specialty with both medical and surgical aspects. A dermatologist is a specialist doctor who manages skin diseases and deals with both internal and external causes and some cosmetic concerns involving the skin. Dermatological duties include taking consultations, providing screening tests, and undertaking non-invasive surgical procedures.
When he is not working, Dr. Young loves to travel. His hobbies include reading and researching U.S. history. In particular, he loves learning about Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War, subjects about which he has read extensively, and even lectured on at BYU Education Week. He also enjoys collecting autographs, many of which are on display on the walls of Rocky Mountain Dermatology. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his family, whenever he can.
