She's really bad at answering and providing her patients. I've had her for 6 months as my dermatologist and she's done nothing to cure my condition. So beware if you're thinking of having her as your specialist...

I was very unhappy with Dr. Young. She not questioned me about birth control, but BADGERED me about birth control methods. She rushed through my appt, I did have my children with me, however, she's the one that said well I can see you're in a rush, this is what I'm prescribing, see you in 6 weeks....more
