Professional Statement

As an experienced podiatrist, I believe that foot pain is not normal and should not be accepted as something you have to live with. I am board certified in foot and ankle surgery, yet experienced in the best non-surgical care as well. I keep in mind the comfort of my patients and the demands of their lifestyles and jobs.

I believe that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well-being. Communication is very important in the total care of the patient. Understanding about you and your lifestyle, occupational demands on your feet, exercise and nutrition are important for us to help you get better.

I have found that Dr. Young is a compassionate and knowledgeable doctor who really took a lot of time to listen to my feet issues and thoughtfully considered different treatment options for my foot pain- some of them basically free! She is never rushed at my appts and asks me about my mom (who has cancer) and other personal stuff going on in my life which I appreciate. She takes your entire life into consideration when recommending options for your treatment which is refreshing. Also, she is not one of these doctors who makes you feel like an idiot for asking questions and she doesn't have a big ego so you always feel good after leaving her office :) She is open to trying/recommending different treatments based on her follow up with me, and seems to be interested/knowledgeable in new advances in her field.

A year ago I had my first appointment with a podiatrist. It was not a good experience and it turns out that he misdiagnosed me. My experience with Dr. Young was the other end of the spectrum--nice, clean office and friendly staff. Dr. Young had an idea of what my diagnosis might be right off from the start and then took some X-rays to confirm her preliminary diagnosis. She clearly explained next steps and was very understanding when I explained that I was on one of the marketplace plans. She gave me info and phone numbers to 3 different billing offices so that I can find out what my out of pocket charges will be ahead of time. It's great to finally know exactly what's going on with my big toe. While I'll need minor surgery, I feel like I am in excellent hands with Dr. Young.
