Patients describe Dr. Carolynn Young as compassionate, encouraging and diligent with a wonderful bedside manner. She cares for patients holistically—the whole woman for her whole life—considering their physical and emotional aspects. “I learn about them as people,” she says. “I educate about issues and treatment options, certainly, but also about health maintenance. Communication is critical with patients and their referring providers.”
“What brings me the most satisfaction is improving patients’ quality of life—especially women suffering from abnormal bleeding or fibroids—and seeing their joy when problems resolve. I love my office staff, too. Everyone plays a vital role in providing top-notch patient care.”
Dr. Young was the area’s first female physician to perform robotic surgery, and the first to incorporate Mona Lisa Touch, a laser treatment for vaginal dryness and pain with intercourse. The office, including the new Surgery Center for Women, is beautifully appointed, creating a calming and welcoming environment.
The practice recently incorporated new technologies including the Emsella chair and the O-shot. The Emsella chair is a non-invasive treatment for urinary issues. One sits fully-clothed on a chair with a powerful magnet which, during the 28-minute session, performs 11,200 very strong Kegels exercises for a patient. This treatment is painless, requiring no medication or surgery. It’s very effective at treating urinary leakage and frequency/urgency. It also increases genital sensation, and often improves decreased libido. Rockville Gynecology also performs the O-shot, which uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve sexual dysfunction and urinary issues.
