Outstanding physician who really cares - follows up, and goes out of her way to communicate directly with her patients. Can't recommend her highly enough

Dr. Youngelman was fantastic and I'm thrilled to have been treated by her for a minor procedure. She kept me informed throughout and went out of her way to make me feel comfortable when I was anxious. She also traded light humor back and forth with me, which put my mind at greater ease. A+
