Dr. Young is my favorite doctor. He reviews my records with me on every visit and we discuss my ongoing treatment in detail. He discusses the pro's and con's of my medications. He has a good sense of humor and keeps me at ease. I really like that he doesn't seem to be in a hurry to get to his next patient.
