I am a current patient of Dr. Young. The appt was for my husband who is looking for a new family physician. Dr. Young and the nurse practitioner were both very professional, very nice and very knowledgeable on how to proceed.

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 areferral. 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!!

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 likethat, it was like having my own doctor with a second opinion.

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.

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 seeif 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.

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 Iappreciated. 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.

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 toknow 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.

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.
