    Dr. Young was very clear in explaining my situation and the steps necessary to continue my recovery.

    I'll just paste this in from before: We felt very confident with him, and liked his demeanor a lot. He was friendly, but carried the appropriate seriousness for our situation was well. We hope he ends up being our surgeon when the time comes. We like answers to our questions, we have been getting those from Gen Surgery, and Dr. Young was really good. So were the Interns. His current recommendations came with explanations. And, while he was friendly, he was also to the point. Example: we need another CT Scan, he tied in all the info that would give them to our current situation, so we could see the need and the benefit. Thank you, Dr. Young and Interns. Dr. Lombardo was good at this also during that visit.

    Doctor Young was professional and good at talking my problems and pain through with me after surgery with another doctor. He was honest about what could be happening and explained how we should proceed.

    The provider was well versed on my past medical history. That was reassuring.
