Biography

Lawrence H. Young, MD, is a cardiologist who treats patients suffering from irregular heartbeats-called arrhythmias-or heart failure, as well as other heart conditions, both complex and common. With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Young has also seen a number of patients with a rare genetic disease called hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). "Yale is probably the world's leader in understanding and treating patients with HHT," Dr. Young says. HHT is a rare genetic disorder that causes abnormal blood vessel function and growth. 

As a medical school student, Dr. Young spent time treating cardiac patients in the intensive care unit and "decided then and there I wanted to be a cardiologist," he says. "I enjoy taking care of acutely ill patients, but I also enjoy seeing patients over time and following their progress." 

In the Yale School of Medicine, cardiologist Dr. Young is professor of medicine and of cellular and molecular physiology. He continues to conduct research in cardiology, specifically at the intersection of heart health and diabetes.
