Dr. Kelley Young
Dr. Kelley Young is a general hematologist and oncologist who treats a wide range of cancer types and blood disorders. Dr. Young graduated from the University of Missouri Medical School, completed her medical training at the University of Kentucky, and was the recipient of the 2012 NCI Gold Award for clinical trial enrollment.Our philosophy is that the patient comes first and that each case is unique. I make sure the patient understands what they are facing, what the treatment options are, and what the risks and benefits are of each. Symptom management is important to maintaining the quality of life during cancer treatment and is monitored closely. I use my 10 years of experience practicing oncology in the Kansas City Metro to coordinate the best, individualized treatment plan for patients. My staff and I are passionate advocates for patients and the private practice setting affords me the time to spend with each patient as they prepare for the fight of their lives
