Dr. Younker was my doctor when she was located in Florida. She always took time to listen to me whenever I came in to see her and utilizes technological advances available in medicine such as messaging through patient portals to continue to improve a patient's access to care. She also understood the importance to setting a baseline for my health and did not disregard my health concerns because I am younger that the majority of patients that are normally served here. She is greatly missed.

After my regular doctor retired, it took time to find someone with whom I felt comfortable as well as a doctor who accepted my insurance. I found both with Dr. Younker on my first visit and then some. She is so friendly and positive and makes me feel at ease in her office. I am so happy that she is now my doctor!
