About Dr. Young

Philosophy of care

My philosophy is to provide the most up-to-date evidence-based care to all patients I see on a daily basis. I want to educate my patients so they can make an informed decision regarding their medical care so we can partner together to address any issues or concerns.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine so that I could make a difference in someone’s life, no matter how small. I chose OB/GYN specifically because I wanted to deliver babies, and take care of women during that long process (from conception to delivery). Being a part of this particular part of a couple’s life is a great honor and privilege. I also enjoy the variety that this field offers. No work day is ever the same and you never know what will pop up. Whether it’s in the office, on the labor floor, or in the OR, I’m always kept on my toes.

Community involvement

Prior to moving to the Lehigh Valley, I served my country in the US Navy as an OB/GYN. I got to assist our soldiers and their wives in the same capacity that I currently do here at LVHN. I look forward to becoming involved in the LVHN community.

Personal interests

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I’m always on the lookout for a great restaurant (old or new). I also enjoy reading, going to the movies, amusement parks, running, and traveling.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
