Dr. Young was late to our appointment and this is the third time this has happened to us. One time where she was completely not in the office when my husband showed up and we had to reschedule the appointment after he had taken off work and we excused our daughter from daycare that day. Dr. Young came into the office for just a few minutes and did not listen to my concerns and then left and rescheduled us for a follow up appointment at 3 months, continuing with the same therapy that I had mentioned was not working.

We had a great experience with Dr. Young as well as the nurses and front desk staff who helped us. Also, I wanted to especially thank Dr. Young for calling with our test results the moment she got them. It was getting close to the end of the day and she could have waited but having her call provided great relief to our family. Thank you for hiring people who care about kids.

The appointment was great and we had a short wait time. I would have appreciated, before the appointment, if someone would have explained WHY I needed to allow 2 to 3 hours. I also didn't ask as it was on the paper that was sent to us. It didn't even feel like we had been there 2 hours. The staff was really nice.
