I received a full thyroidectomy from Dr. Moo-Young 8 years ago. She did a really great job. The scar was barely visible even a year later. All has been going well since. Really great experience with her during a scary time.

As a result of annual testing, a parathyroid problem was discovered at the outset of the pandemic. Dr Moo-Young was recommended. She and I “met,” over an app called Scribble. She spent a long time explaining the problem and the surgery. She was MARVELOUS. The surgery occurred on July 15, 2020. She did a fabulous job! The scar is tiny. She was great post-op too! I just can’t praise her enough. If I need surgery again for any reason, Dr Moo-Young is MY surgeon!

I was told to see Dr. Moo-Young by a man while riding on the CTA transit. I overheard him talking to someone about his symptoms and diagnosis. I had the same parathyroid problem and we spoke a little and he told me to go to Dr. Moo-Young. He said "She is the BEST." I went to her. I was struck with her kind, personal and exact, detailed information about my disease. She told me how it could be treated. Her personality exudes assurance, confidence and genuine concern for the patient. I did the surgery and it went perfectly. I was a little worried as the first blood tests showed low, but the following blood tests are normal. If you have parathyroid disease, you need to be treated by Dr. Tricia Moo-Young. She is an excellent doctor and her staff all gave positive reports as they love her as well. She is a 10 out of 10. Thank you Dr. Moo-Young

Recently, I visited Dr. Moo and I think she is the kind of Doctor I would like to see. I like the way she patiently listened to patient, answered questions and explained details. The medicine she prescribed works very well.

I like her! Dr Young is extremely knowledgeable and doesn't beat around the bush at the same time she keeps a very caring attitude. After having dealt with a thyroid nodule for years with doctors who had a wait and see not giving a hoot about me attitude, she drew me a diagram of everything going on also letting me know the urgency of my situation. Thank you Dr Young for being a doctor who seems to care!
