      Dr. Young-Szalay has a calming presence about her. She is a caring individual and an amazing doctor. She did surgery on my 14 year old daughter in March 2016. She was gracious enough to fit my daughter's surgery in the next day. For that I am forever grateful. She is and her staff are very thorough with the follow ups. which certainly helped ease the worry and concern. would highly recommend Dr. Melissa Young- Szalay to anyone in need of her expertise.
