Dr. Young's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Young "Dr. Young wants every patient to benefit from the most aggressive options in cancer treatment through radiation therapy. His focus is on assessing each patient's specific needs and then working with the family to create a radiation therapy plan resulting in the best possible outcome. He is also skilled in the use of CyberKnife® Radiosurgery, a complex type of cancer treatment using precise radiation in place of surgery. This technology can be effective for treating tumors previously considered inoperable. Dr. Young earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in biochemistry and microbiology from University of California at Berkeley. He completed an internship andresidency in Internal Medicine at the University of California at Irvine. He planned to specialize in medical oncology but fell in love with radiation oncology when doing an elective in that field. As a result, Dr. Young completed an additional residency in radiation oncology, including experience at two prestigious facilities: the designated National Cancer Institute City of Hope National Cancer Center and brachytherapy experience at Long Beach Memorial. He was at UT Southwestern before joining our practice. There he focused on the treatment of lung cancer and head and neck cancer as well as stereotactic radiation. His hope is to combine his breath of knowledge and experience in state of the art radiation therapy with the art of compassion and care."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Young "My grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was young.  I saw how it affected her and touched the lives of those who cared about her.  It created fear about her future, stirred up family dynamics and raised questions about the goodness of God.  I wanted to become like a few who were involved in her care that went beyond bringing physical treatment but impacted our whole family with true compassion."
