Dr. Young performed an appendectomy on me. Was very impressed with the way he was able to keep me calm before saying a prayer. Would highly recommend.

Great, fantastic, unbelievable Doctor and office staff. Soon as you enter into office you can tell they are more family than employee's for you can feel it in the atmosphere. They treat you as you're family as well. Never been to a Doctor that prays with not only his staff but the patient as well....more
