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."

Wow! Well trained, super-smart, very efficient and great patient interaction. Outstanding Doctor.
in Saddle Brook, NJ |
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 days ago. Never had this problem with other doctors, they always call me whenever needed to discuss about test results, etc. She could just give me a call for 15 min. The front desk woman is arrogant!

Dr. Young is a wonderful and caring physician. Highly recommend!
Jersey City, NJ |
I'm appalled by her lack of bedside manners. She was rude and rushed us. She didn't completely check out my 3 month old baby and never explained his diagnosis all because we were 20 mins late. She even kicked us out cause I breastfed my baby for 5 mins. I left more confused and very upset. The receptionist tiffany is wonderful. She should teach the doctor how to say hello and smile.

I called Dr. Young's office for an appointment after calling 3 other dermatologists who all would not see me for at least a week. I expressed my concern and that I really wanted to come in as soon as possible. Dr. Young gave me an appointment within the hour as soon I said I was worried. Despite how busy she was she took me in and did a quick and painless procedure! This doctor gets an A++. Staff was also very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person. Great experience!
Kicked to the curb. After a couple of visits she said I should go see a specialist and then gave me a referral to a doctor that had already retired. Long story short.......I found a specialist in NYC. I ended up having a partial amputation of my thumb. I'd give her negative starts if I could. And..............even after contesting her bill, she's making me pay for her expertise.
