I have struggled with skin issues my whole life and have had little success with other dermatologists. I have been seeing Dr. Young for over a year and have trusted her from the initial visit. She listens to my concerns, makes me feel like we are a team, and clearly explains what she is seeing in my skin and what the strategy for treating it is. I appreciate her greatly.

I have been seeing Dr Young for several types of treatments since 2014, and she has always provided the most thorough explanation of the conditions, the causes, the treatments and the expected results. She is the best!
