Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Young dismissed my concerns and symptoms. I didn't feel like he was listening to me at all. I needed to see a specialist and he told me to find my own specialist and call him back to ask for a referral. I don't know why he wouldn't just take the time to suggest a good doctor to me. His staff wasn't very nice when I called back asking for a referral. I do not suggest this doctor!!
I found him too be very nice and who cares about my health.
Was very impressed with all the staff. The NP, PA and student NP were excellent, informative with awesome personalities !!!
I was very pleased with Donald Young and his intern. They were very thorough and really explained my concerns. I would highly recommend Donald Young to my family and friends.
Great visit and informative.
Dr. Young is probably one of greatest Doctor in Houston. He wears his concerning heart on his sleeve. :)
The doctor in training was very courteous and polite. She went through everything by the book so that’s fantastic for me. Once she was done diagnosing me the doctor came in to check me thoroughly as well. I really did like that, it was like having my own doctor with a second opinion.
Professional and Most Caring Staff
Dr. young was highly professional and courteous as were his assistants. I had a very helpful and informative visit.
Wait time was good, and overall good experience.
Very friendly and professional. Overall, good experience.
Great service, excellent dialog. I highly recommend this physician.
love the attention, wonderful bedside manor, Very nice not rushed at all. He asked many questions. You could tell he was genuinely concerned . Would recommend to all my friends and family, He has been a practice for many years very knowledgeable.
Great bedside manner
As usual, I didn't have long to wait, they were very thorough, and promptly addressed all of my issues.
I like that the doctors assistant took the time to answer all of my questions rather than just trying to get a patient in and out of the office.
Good attention, long wait
Excellent bed side manners, sets a good example for the other physicians who are in training and addresses all concerns
Front office cold and not professional they have a glass window that they keep closed and when you have a question patient needs to wait until they are ready which can be an additional 15 minute wait
ENTIRE STAFF IS GREAT, PATIENT FRIENDLY
Dr. Young and his entire staff, including PA, Kyle, take time to really listen to their patients. I am very pleased with their approach to patients and trust their judgment and expertise.
I had a very good visit, as I always do. Kyle took care of me personally, as he usually does. He consults Dr. Young about all my medical findings, needs, etc., and together they get me very well taken care of. They take as much time as they need to evaluate all my medical needs, and I never feel that they are in a hurry to go to the next patient. I feel that I am important.
Dr. Young was out, but his stand-in Kyle was friendly, attentive and very helpful.
Very kind, professional and knew exactly what to prescribe to cure my illness.
Very professional care
He is always very personable and asks the right questions. AND gives you the right direction and opinion. Love my Doc!
The visit went very well. no compliants
I have always been happy with my office visits. Responding regarding a question from the office staffs sometimes is quite slow.
It was a first time visit so I could get to meet and know Dr. Young. The staff was pleasant. The nurses had great, friendly personalities and made me feel relaxed. The physician assistant Kyle Mays did and excellent job as well of listening to my health concerns and keeping me at ease and keeping me informed.
The P.A.'s and office staff are wonderful.
The med study who saw me was professional and pleasant. Then Dr Young came in and he too seem genuinely interested in my care and even asked a staff member to call some specialists he referred me to next to see if they would take my insurance. This is a refreshing change in a doctor's office demeanor which is typically rushed and about as pleasant as the DMV office.
excellent staff and service
I've never had much of a wait time. Usually less than 10 minutes. Dr. Young has a few medical students working with him that are always nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. Dr. Young was extremely nice and very straight forward which I appreciated. He is my new primary care and I will definitely be going back.
The med students who helped me were great, but doctor Young has profound hearing problems that made it difficult to communicate with him. He seems past his prime, a little vague about most things we discussed.
Dr Young and his staff are the best at everything they do. They go above and beyond and continually exceed expectations. I highly recommend this office! Dr Young even called me personally to follow up. This enire office cares about their clients. That is something you can't put a price on.
The visit went well. The results from the previous visit was mentioned. My future visit was given.
I had bronchitis and chose Dr Young because my long time internist was too busy to see me. 5 different staff members came in and out of my room. Dr Young was last. He opened up with a few "Getting to know you" questions. In a very short period of time, Dr Young left the room and said he would check with staff I had already seen to find out what information they had taken. I never saw the Dr again. I will go back for a checkup and hope to receive more personalized attention. I am looking for a new PCP Dr. I hope this works out because the office is close and they take my insurance. Also, I did not have to wait long for my appointment online and was seen soon after I arrived.
Very thorough & professional .
Great service, would highly recommend.
Dr. Young was very professional and thorough. I expected him to get me in and out in less than 30 minutes as that was my usual experience with doctors, but it wasn't a bad thing that it took a bit longer. Since this was my first time to see him, he took the necessary time to understand my family history and current ailments. He explained the next steps to make sure my body was taken care of and had me on my way. I will definitely go back to see Dr. Young.
Super. True interest in me. Amazed and confident in the concern and REAL care.
Dr. Young seemed very experienced
The entire staff is friendly and professional - and always very attentive. This is by far the best practice I've ever been to. Dr. Young is the best!
Very satisfied. Dr. Young is a helpful and considerate GP. The office staff is efficient. Referrals to specialists on my insurance plan are provided routinely.
Very personable and knowledgeable Doctor.
got what i needed and they were very helpful
All their staff are very caring and friendly. They take the time to make sure you fully understand. Highly recommend!
GREAT DOC. EXCELLENT DIAGNOSTIC TALENTS
The Dr. Was very busy but he took enough time for me.
Dr Young was not available, but the PA and a third year resident were more than capable, and answered all of my concerns. I feel confident with their abilities.
A pleasant visit. Very professional.
1st visit - staff very professional and helpful.
Very pleasant staff welcoming me as a new patient..
He seemed very helpful!
Dr. Young was very prompt (something you love to see in a doctor) and was pleasant enough to talk to.
wait time was 45 minutes, but it was a last minute appointment that that was scheduled asap.... dr young and his staff are knowledgeable and compassionate. he treated me like a real person. he was proactive and made recommendations to help me with my medical issues. THANK YOU DR YOUNG!
Very nice: Very informative
The doc was great. All problems relate to my insurance company and their prior authorization process. I did think it a little odd though that every question I answered on ZocDoc, I also answered 3 times when I got to the doctor's office.
Dr. Young is a great Dr. I have been going to him for years. My visit with him was excellent. But his staff are not friendly to me, but that, s just my opinion. The laughter is not there that would make you feel welcome to come there. He will help you and will refer you to another Dr. To get the help you need from them to get you back on your feet.
Dr was uninterested in listening to me, felt as if Dr. Young wanted to get me out as quickly as possible in order to get another patient in.
Dr. Young explains everything about diagnosis and what can be done. He is never in a hurry which I thoroughly appreciate. He will sit and talk and ask questions and explain things. Best Dr. ever.
Courteous and professional as always!
Dr. Young and his assistants were very thorough, courteous, and professional. They did not seem to be in a hurry like so many other dr.s offices. I was Recommended to Dr. Young and would be happy to recommend Dr. Young to new patients.
Professional. Friendly. Dr. Asked a lot of questions to make good assessment. Listened well.
Answer all question and also remember it was time for my annually
An overall satisfactory experience for a Drs visit. Good staff as well and they called with timely follow up / results.
it was great and he took a lot of time with me explaining everything.
Good but the wait was long and this time I felt a little rushed through my appt.
I really. Love Dr Young he has a great. Bedside matter Be sure to write Down important questions concerning your visit today because you may get side tracked and forget . So stay focused. He is Very compassionate about you and your health He returns calls after hour fior emergencies
The PA's were very friendly and knowledgable and really know their stuff! I was nervous as this was my first office visit in almost 4 yrs but I had nothing to worry about.
I was suffering from terrible abdominal pain and emailed Dr. Young's office. They gave me an appointment immediately and took me right in. Dr. Young gave me a thorough examination and wasted no time getting my labs and imaging set up--he even walked me over to the lab himself to make sure I was alright. And that they got his instructions correct. He and his staff are the absolute best!
There was a good change in the office everyone was so nice and I was treated good. In the past front desk person was always rude. Maria was always great with everyone. After her it went down. But,this last visit on 10/27/14 it was a whole lot better.
he is the best doc as always !!!
Organized, efficient and caring. Excellent practice.
Dr. Young is a true professional. He will listen to the patient, preform tests and diagnosis their situation, talk about options, discuss a plan of action, communicate what he expects of you and what to expect from him. When you leave Dr. Young's office, you feel like you just visited a close friend. I highly recommend Dr. Young for young or old patients. .
Dr. Donald Young listens carefully to you. He also has a very caring staff . Thanks!!
Excellent, as usual
I liked the use of a Physicians Assistant.
imhave been a patient for moore than fifteen years and have never been disatsified. his care of me.
I spent two hours in the office for a yearly physical and all that happened was a bunch of questions from the interns and a request from the doctor to come back in two weeks for my full physical WHAT? I also got a lab slip to get my blood work done across town after I had already fasted until noon because I was prepared for what I told them I was coming for and no one told me the building and the office has no in house lab. I will not be back
The long wait was unusual, but stuff happens . It's usually 20-30 minutes or less. I have been Dr Young's patient for several years and would recommend him ,and his co-workers, to anyone who needs a reliable skilled GP. He asks, listens and responds. I trust him.
VERY Happy With Today's Results
Doctor Young is very knowledgable and easy to talk to. Considering this is my first doctor I've seen since living in American, I have no problems keeping him as my GP.
Being my first visit, couldn't really rate him to say.
Did not listen, did not seem to care that I needed help *now* not after weeks and months. Treated me like I was an idiot who knew nothing about myself and the ailment I had been dealing with for many years. I was a patient for over 8 years and this was not the first time I was treated poorly, just the worst and the last time I will use this physician.
I was very satisfty
Dr. Young was professional and took the time to address all of my needs. He wants you feeling 100% better, not just 75%.
Very thorough visit.
No complaints about Dr. Young. Everyone at the office was very courteous.
Dr Young was very attentive in our conversation. Staff was great.
The office staff said they did not accept ZocDoc paperwork, which meant I had to fill it all out again. I then waited 30 minutes after my appointment time to be seen by the nurse, and Dr Young didn't come in until fully 1 hour after my scheduled appointment time. We talked for 5 minutes where he briskly prescribed medication, then sent in a medical student to perform a physical. The entire appointment took 1 hour and 15 minutes, maybe 15 of which were actually spent with a medical professional.
Most of the visit was spent wit the P.A. She was very thorough gathering information. I saw the Dr less than five minutes, but assuming he reviewed the info it was sufficient
I found Dr. Young and his entire staff to be highly professional, courteous and efficient. I will gladly recommend his office and practice.
I really felt comfortable and enjoyed my first time visit. Looking forward to having Dr Young office be my new permanent doctors office.
The doctor was excellent, but dealing with the office staff was the worst experience I've had at a doctors office. They were rude and too lazy to print off the paper work I filled out online. I called the day before and they told me I could fill out everything online so I could be in&out in 30 minutes, but when I got there the girl in the front said she didn't want to print off the forms, and that I can just fill out the 15 pages again! I tried to go on my lunch break just to change a prescription, and it was the hugest hassle. I was in the waiting room for almost the entire hour filling out papers, and waiting with no one in front of me.... I would go back for the doctor, but the staff prevents me from even thinking about it.
I was a little concerned that he referred me to a Gastroenterologist and a Cardiologist but if he can puzzle out what my problem is from those experts then I will have a good recommendation for him since I did not have a serious blood pressure problem until I got stomach ulcers.
He was a nice guy and took time to visit with me regarding my issue. He will be my regular doctor as I’m new to the area.
Staff was friendly, efficient, and thorough. Doctor was obviously experienced and up to date. Warm, listened to me, asked me relevant questions and provided reasonable solutions. Very satisfied with overall experience and confident will be receiving good, comprehensive health care.
Dr. Young was very friendly and had a great sense of humor.
Professional service. My pain went away same evening as i followed suggestions. I could sleep first night. Next morning i took tests. Also recieved check up call from Dr. Young's office. My first good physician.
Too soon to tell but I was impressed today.
He was so rude mean and unprofessional I had to leave the appointment bc of his rudeness and wasted my copayment
Very pleased - once I got in. seemed concerned. Very professional and clear regarding future direction.
Its obvious that Dr. Young cares about his patients and is thorough in his diagnostics. I highly recommend him.
The wait was a bit long, but from what I heard from some of the "regulars," long wait times are the exception, not the rule. The wait really didn't bother me...I made the appointment in the morning and was seen the same day. I was just happy someone could fit me in on such short notice. I really like Dr. Young, his staff was friendly, the office is 5 minutes from my house, and my over all experience was a good one. I would definitely recommend this doctor, and this site...I probably wouldn't have found him otherwise!
Poor bedside manner. Didn't seem very sympathetic to the issue I am having. Very detached.
said he treats sleep disorders. When was called back to confirm my appt i was made to feel as if i was a drug addict looking for a doctor to just right scripts. As someone who has went through the sleep tests and has been diagnosed just was looking for a new local PCP as I am new to the area this was one of the most insulting experiences I have had.
Well Dr. Young was out of the office this week and I was required to see the visiting doctor. I arrived 20 minutes prior to my appointment to complete new patient paperwork. The receptionist didnt actually acknowledge anyone behind her glass window until it was time for the appointment. I waited almost 40 minutes before I actually was given paperwork and well after my scheduled appointment time. They attempted to collect a copay upfront (which was not required) and also called later that afternoon again for copay from the same lady I had a conversation with at reception. Not sure what Dr. Young is like but do not think I will visit this facility in the future.
Dr. Donald was fine. He had many appointments available and did a good job listening to my concerns.
Very good experience . Dr. Young was a caring individual who gave me his complete attention. He has a good balance of listening and questioning skills. Very pleased with the ZocDoc experience overall!
Very up front and caring. Felt he was really looking to give me the best health advice. A+
First time.. but let me say had a good experience excellent doc.. hope keep up the good work. Leo Vela
Looks likewhat I want for a primary doctor
VERY PROFESSIONAL ENJOYED VISIT
