Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Young is a wonderful cardiologist. With my ACHD, I feel that he truly cares about his patients. He takes the time to explain in detail any questions or concerns you have about your heart. I could never feel as comfortable as I do with Dr. Young, Krista and all the staff at Ochsner.

Dr. Young is very caring and thorough. He has followed my son since day one and my son, not being a fan of doctors, likes doctor Young! He's great with babies and kids as well as adults.
