    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. Dr. Young did my gall bladder surgery years ago and I've never had a problem since. I continue under his care because of the Doctor he is. You just don't want to leave him!!!!
