Dr. Youngewirth is thorough, sweet, very attentive and answered all of my questions. After my Xrays, she made sure I could see what was bothering me, and their office provided lots of information on how to take care of myself athome. I look forward to seeing her again in a few weeks as a follow up. I felt comfortable asking her questions - very personable, and glad a friend recommended me.

Front desk staff friendly. But when you ask too many questions they get an attitude, sarcasm, and are very dismissive. Doctor is now on a maternity leave yet they scheduled a follow up knowing she will be out of the office.I went and did blood work, and now I have to wait to be on their time. Not a convenient office for being considerate of your time. Def won’t recommend anymore, as I had been.

As a healthcare professional I will not be returning to this office and would advise all other patients to seek care elsewhere . The doctor didn’t say much as far as probable diagnosis and most importantly the equipment was not sterilized.A clipping of my nail was taken to be sent off to the lab and the clipper was placed back in a dusty drawer/toolbox. The doctor’s attempt at cleanliness was swiping my toe nails with an alcohol wipe after the use of dirty equipment. No thank you!

Dr. Youngewirth is one of the best! I could not be happier with my experience with her. As soon as I arrived I saw a super clean, pristine office. Her staff was all smiles, and so was she! Her bedside manneris out of this world. I had a procedure done and she told me it was okay to scream it out. She told me everything she was doing and why. I am SO glad I found this amazing doctor!! She even helped me after hours with a prescription issue I was having. I cannot recommend her enough!

The office appears to be in her house and is in a musty basement. It does NOT seem to be sanitary enough to perform any kind of procedure. I also felt like I was being shamed for my personal foot issue. Will not be going back.

Dr. Youngewirth was nice, but I have many doubts as to whether she is good as a medical professional. When I arrived, I was very doubtful that I was at the correct place. Her practice is in the basement of herhome and it definitely does not look like the most welcoming and inviting place. In fact, it looks dangerous and quite frankly, scary. When I scheduled my appointment, I read many mixed reviews, but I was willing to give it a shot myself because the place that I had been going to in the past could not take my new insurance. Unfortunately, Dr. Youngewirth does not have access to what I need to help me. I'm not sure if she is at fault, but she simply does not have it. She was kind enough to give me alternatives, but that is months of pain before anything gets better. I will be returning to my other doctor despite the fact that my new insurance does not cover it. If your medical condition requires more up to date medicine, I would not recommend Dr. Youngewirth and if a bright and clean looking setting is important to you, this is not the place to go.

This was my mom's 3rd visit. Here appointment was for 12:30pm, but, she was not seen until 2:35pm! I was told they could not access her ZocDoc appointment on the internet and listed her as a walk-in! I showed the receptionistthe confirmation text on my phone when we arrived at 12:15pm. Funny that they have a sign in the waiting area, encouraging patients to use ZocDoc. The doctor is excellent, but, they really need to get a better system in place for seeing patients with appointments in a timely fashion. As a professional courtesy, I would not expect more than a twenty minute delay, unless there is and emergency. Was told to not use ZocDoc and call the office direct when making appointments in the future. Matter as well, not list this place in ZocDoc at all.

knowledgeable, concerned and professional feedback given to me about my feet. treatment options discussed. left relieved. another appointment will be setup shortly. office and medical assistants were helpful, cheerful, respectful andprofessional. I wish I had the money to help the Doc renovate and brighten their small spaces but never lacking is their hearts of gold ... this is "HUGE" when searching for a compatible team of caregivers.

Elizabeth Youngewirth's office is completely unsanitary. Mold, trash strewn across the floor, old and broken medical equipment cluttered about. This was the most unprofessional Doctor's office I have been in my entire life. I'm not sure how she is still in business. Do not go to this doctor.

This is the first time I went to see this doctor and I must say that I was satisfied with the visit. She was knowledgeable and prescribed medicine to help my condition until lab results come in. The only complaint Iwould have is the wait time which seems a bit long considering she books in 30 minute blocks. Despite that I will be going there again.
