It is with great pleasure that I write this note of thanks to Dr. Young. I was lucky to have had a cancellation in his schedule. I presented my wheelchair-bound self to him for his care and treatment, and what services I received! After a quick thorough neurological examination, it was off for an MRI. I went back to the office a few hours later for my results which showed a protruding disc, at which time it was declared that I must be seen by a neurosurgeon within a 24 hour period and off we went. Dr. Young pushed me in my wheelchair all the way to the ER at Cottage. He assisted in my admittance to the ER and an attending ER physician saw me in about half an hour. Since my return home, I am able to walk, I feel 200% better. I am virtually pain free, I am fully aware that we are still in a wait to a pattern, but what I see and feel so far is nothing but optimism. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for the care and treatment I received while I was at Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara. It reminded me to make my annual contribution to Sansum Clinic. Again, thank you for all of your help.
