"It was both a pleasure and an honor to work with Dr. Young as a consultant on a difficult case. She was very helpful in defining & explaining the medical issues involved and she was extremely thorough in her approach to the case. A very fine doctor who was very fair and honest on all fronts. I highly recommend her for future review of legal cases."
