Horrible doctor! She gave us incorrect information with wic, they failed to fax my daughters shot records and I had to show up in the office when I came back to alabama to get anything down. My youngest daughter has an eye infection and they stuck us in a filthy room for 2 1/2hrs for the NP to come in and ask me questions I've already answered and she pressed so hard on my babies face it left a bruise! Dr.youngharkins wouldn't even listen to what happened.. nasty place and people!
