I've been a patient of Dr. Young's for several years; she is one of the finest doctors of any kind, and particularly dermatology, that I've ever had. I recently moved, and even though continuing to see her now requires taking 2 ferry crossings and driving many more miles than before, I would never consider changing to another physician.

Everyone I interacted with at the clinic was kind, helpful, and respectful from the administrative staff to the nurse to the doctor. Dr. Young was thoughtful and communicative about the approach she took to working with my particular skin condition, and I could tell that she was taking a very personalized approach to care. I am pretty uncomfortable with needles, but the nurse that administered my Novocain was an expert at making me feel emotionally comfortable and reducing any physical pain I might have experienced. I really enjoyed my first visit to this clinic, and I feel very excited to continue my care with Dr. Young.

Dr. Young is very speedy but still takes the time to answer questions and explain her reasoning behind prescriptions. She actually looked at my skin closely through an magnifier, and wants to get to the root cause of my symptoms, which not all dermatologists take the time to do.

I had a very positive experience during my visit to Dr. Young's practice. I arrived and was asked to fill out forms which is pretty standard. Within minutes I was asked to enter a room which was fantastic where the attendant asked for more medical related information on her iPad. She was knowledgeable and very courteous. Afterwards, Dr. Young arrived and she spoke to me like a person. I immediately felt relaxed and at home. She went through my recommended prescriptions and we agreed to a plan that worked for me. Would highly recommend her practice.
