Richard Young MD
Dr. Young is the most thorough, kind and knowledgeable primary care physician I've ever met. You may have to wait, because he cares for his clients but I never feel worried, I feel he is looking holistically at all of my health and I get the sense he really cares.

This doctor is a horrible person, not nice to his patients at all!!If you are little heavy woman or a lot heavy woman, the doctor treats you like crap!I came for help and all that I got was how bad I was to be heavy and I am the one making myself sick with the pe-condition that I have.When this is not a true statement since all the women in my family have this condition, and most of them are thinner than me.If you are a thin lady or person, you have no trouble with the doctor and everything is fine and dandy, but if you have a little meat on your bones. Watch out you will feel worse when you came in to get help from a nose, ear and throat doctor.
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
