Extremely frustrated. Took the time to prefill all forms needed for appointment only to get there and have to redo all forms because they didn't see them. Once they came back with more forms for a full health history I decidedI was done. I might go back at some point but clearly not on the top of my list of people to consider.

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.
