Danee Young, MD
Dr. Young received her Medical Degree from the University of California at Davis – a school emphasizing care of the whole patient. She completed Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California. Afterwards, Dr. Young worked throughout the United States and overseas. From her work in Scotland and New Zealand, she was taught their focus on patient history and physical exam rather than extensive testing typical in American healthcare. As a result of this experience, her emphasis has been on prevention and finding causes for disease rather than treating symptoms.
After moving to Utah with her family, Dr. Young started private practice. She led her community in providing minimally invasive procedures including operative laparoscopy, in-office hysteroscopy and interventional 3D ultrasound. Believing that patients and health care providers should work as a team, she and her staff helped patients address infertility, chronic pelvic pain, pelvic floor weakness, bleeding issues, hormonal disorders, as well as alternatives to hysterectomy.
Dr. Young has traveled throughout the United States speaking on various women’s health issues, and alternatives to hysterectomy. She has presented at national meetings of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
Wanting to pursue new arenas in women’s healthcare, Dr. Young closed her successful medical practice in Utah and went on to do In-Vitro Fertilization in Tacoma, WA. As that practice closed and a new opportunity emerged in North Carolina, a severe injury in her immediate family necessitated a career pause while providing home care. Crisis now resolved, it is with great pleasure that Dr. Young joins Dr. Frey in providing office gynecology to the patients of HealthMark.
