Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Young "Regular skin checkups are recommended for anyone over 20 years of age, particularly for anyone with sun-damaged skin. Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the U.S. In the office, I perform excisions and other procedures for removing skin cancers and growths. I will also work closely with a patient?s other physicians to treat acute and chronic skin problems such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. In addition, I perform cosmetic procedures so that patients can look good and feel good."

Absolutely the best doctor I’ve ever seen. She is thorough and patient, answers all my questions and is super nice! I’ve never waited more than 15 minutes before seeing her and the waiting room has bowls of cool samples to check out while you wait ;)

I would not recommend Dr. Young to anyone. She couldn't get out of the room fast enough.

I'm giving 3 stars because Dr. Young is not a bad doctor. However, her staff is really unfriendly and unhelpful. I've been trying to get in touch with her regarding my test results and all they tell me on the phone is "you have to come back for a follow up visit" even though I saw her just a few...more
