    Dr.Young has been my doc for 10+ yrs. I live in Colorado Springs and followed him to Woodland Park. He's been the best Dr. I've had and the office staff is awesome. I would definitely recommend the office.

    He is pleasant and seems concerned about his patients. But because of his caseload he sometimes forgets about conditions or prior treatments. A symptom of our medical system I guess. His staff is excellent and very efficient. Sara has been very helpful over the years, going above and beyond.

    Would not recommend Dr. young to anyone. He has developed an elitist attitude toward his patients and feels his nurse practitioner and physicians assistant can take care of the majority of his patients. We were informed Dr.Young will not return calls under any circumstance. I had three prescriptions given to me without DEA numbers and my pharmacist was required to correct these errors.We were with him for 5 years&he refused to speak to us about any concerned issues.
