Dr. Young is the best doctor I've ever - shows empathy, listens, thorough, attentive, very professional & still very friendly.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Young is excellent in packing a lot into a visit about a relatively minor concern - review of other concern - review of other concerns of mine; brief but comprehensive review of my overall health & plan for future care.
