I was very fortunate to be referred to Dr. Young. I immediately had trust in her ability to be my doctor. the knowledge she had about all the test I had have before my first appointment with her. I appreciate how she explained what was going on with my health and explaining what test and the results of those test that Dr. Young had scheduled for me.
