DR. young is wonderful. No complaints about her or her staff. My complaint is that the new speciality center is very overwhelming when you walk in. There's people there to greet you, but then send you over to registration which is right there. It's pretty self explanatory. There's way too much going on in such a small area. Also for someone who has at least 2 to 3 appointments a week, the registration process should be a little bit shorter. It seems very redundant and annoying.

It is very impressive. The doctors do their jobs very well. And in a few months I will have surgery on my eye. I hope it goes well.
