From the moment I met Dr. Young at my first appointment she has been friendly and most interested in helping me. I possibly have a rare disease that I inherited, and may have carried it to my children. Dr. Young has exhibited concerned for my well being and kept me informed of my test results. I also have Iron Deficiency Anemia which must be addressed and in control before any further diagnostic testing regarding the rare disease can be undertaken. I am grateful for Dr. Young and her years of experience in the field of hematology and feel fortunate to be her patient.
