- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr Youngs feels like a family member to me. She really listens to you, spends however much time should need, she doesn't make you feel rushed, but takes whatever time is necessary to get a full understanding of what your needs are. She gets to know you as a person! On occasion you might have to spend some time in the waiting room, but I don't mind because I know she will take as much time as she needs with me! I don't recall having a doctor like her since I was a child and my doctor made house calls. She is special enough that even though I've moved to Nashville TN, I still come to see her since I have family in the area and I visit often. I just can't imagine that I'd be lucky enough to find someone else as wonderful as she is! I love her for all she does for me!! She is one very special, caring lady! Her staff is great too. Allison in reception and her nurse Lissette treat you as someone who matters to them. Clearly Dr Youngs has surrounded herself with individuals who share her values and she nurtures an environment where her patients feel they are truly important and cared about. She is in a different office now. She's with Adventist, Integra Family Health in Carol Stream.
