Dr. Young is fantastic. She listens to my concerns and she explains what is going on with me in a very easy to understand manner. She also lets me make my own decisions and is very patient. She was the one who recommended me to have a trigger point injection and that made a year of pain go away.

I think she is a fine Doctor but today she was rushed, offered an injection but reconsidered it and decided to refer me instead. I would have liked more education behind her decision because it appeared to be a waste of time, just disappointing. I would have even done more therapy to buy the time I now have to wait to get in to another doctor.

I saw Dr. Young because I trust her emphatically after having seen her a few years ago.After not seeing her for a few years & having some serious issues back then til now, we had a lot to discuss. Dr. Young took more than the usual Appointment time I'm sure to make sure she had a solid understanding of my situation. Really APPRECIATE Dr. Young!!

It would be nice if offered the option to either come in or visit over the phone. There really was no reason for me to come in for a referral

Dr. Young is obviously a skilled, knowledgeable practitioner. I look forward to her treatment recommendations and further consultations, if I can somehow break through the front office confusion.
