Lynnette Emery

Dr. Emery is an experienced Mount Vernon physician who practiced at North Cascade Family Physicians for several years. In addition to Little Mountain Laser, she occasionally works at various local clinics filling in for doctors who are out of the office. Her experience includes full-scope family medicine: obstetrics, office surgeries (including skin), and medical care of all ages and body systems. She is Board Certified and licensed in Washington State, and is an associate clinical faculty member at the UW. On a more personal note, she is the mother of two daughters and enjoys time with family, friends, and the outdoors. Her passion for helping people shows through in her work: to help our clients feel as healthy and confident about themselves and their bodies as possible. She performs laser procedures, injections & Jane Iredale Mineral Make-Up.

Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out.
