I don’t think my survey went through to Dignity Health because they said I had timed out….. so I want to send my comments here: “Dr. Allen is the most caring doctor I’ve ever seen. He takes his time to get to know you personally and he isn’t in a rush to get you in and out and leave you feeling completely uncared for like your Dignity Health doctors on 9500 Stockdale in Bakersfield. It’s sooo refreshing to see in Dr. Allen the old time quality care that doesn’t exist in your other facilities. You say you do these surveys to improve quality care but it feels like you are just going through the motions. I feel this is just a business to you and your doctors and you don’t listen to how people feel anyway, so why waste time on your surveys. Will anyone even read this? I’ll never get an answer to that. I’m only really writing to thank Dr. Allen for being such a wonderful exception and a caring human being.

All my experiences with this dr and his med assts have been unsatisfying at best and utterly frustrating at worst. They seem to lack sufficient understanding of basic compassion and how to act as if they care. Basic customer service really missing. Dr orders seems to be the screen they stand behind and that with no effort to consider individual patient concerns leaves us feeling dismissed and vulnerable. Ugh. I do not recommend at all! So done.

Dr. Goraya is a great family physician. He truly cares about his patients. He is willing to listen to all your concerns and will help find solutions to your problems. He is also kind, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about up to date treatment options. He does his best to find a treatment plan that works for you.

I don’t usually leave on line reviews, however this will be an exception. Was referred to him a couple of years ago. He has a lot of potential but inexperienced. After two surgeries, multiple tests, five days in the hospital from post surgery complications he referred me to USC where I was correctly diagnosed. After two additional surgeries I have fully recovered. Dr Youngstrom is very intelligent and will make a great doctor in time. Very good staff.

I still remember that first day when my dad got diagnosed with prostate cancer. My dad almost felt that this was the end, however I never lost hope and we seeked medical care. We were blessed to be one of Dr.Youngstrom's patients and we are extremely grateful to his care! we had the best outcomes possible and my dad feels GREAT. Also, wards CAN'T express enough our gratitude and thankfulness to his assistant Jacklyn (hope I spelled it right)!! she is the MAIN reason that made all this POSSIBLE!. She would call me regularly and follow up with me to make sure that we don't miss appointments/lab work, would follow up on the status of medications for my dad, was very flexible working around our schedule to make sure my dad gets the care he needs and more importantly she would always meet us with a smiling face full of hope after every visit. We also appreciate the clinic staff for all what they do. I wish if this box have more characters on it so I can add more and more!! THANK YOU SO MUCH

Dr allen is by far the WORST doctor I’ve ever been to. I’m currently pregnant with my first child and he has made every appointment uncomfortable for me as well as being terrible at communicating. I constantly am asking questions to which he brushes them off or if I feel something isn’t right he will cut me off and tell me I’m just fine. This is my first child and I have had just the absolute worst experience of my life. I get anxiety every time I have an appointment and have a mental breakdown almost every time after I leave.

Dr. Garaya has been wonderful. I moved from Indiana (where I’d had the same Dr for 22 years) to Bakersfield. I was nervous about finding a quality PCP. Dr Garaya has exceeded expectations. He’s kind, he listens and isn’t pushy. He’s willing to have a conversation and answers my questions. I am more than pleased.

Dr Goraya has been an excellent doctor each time I’ve gone In to see him. He is always very professional and attentive and that is sometimes hard to find in a doctor. He takes his time and gives reason for his recommendations and won’t give you anything unnecessary. Highly recommend him.

Well I got to see this doctor twice. Then he decided he didn’t want to drive to Tehachapi for patients anymore. So now I have Dr. Michelle she is the best and what she does and happy that I had your opportunity to have someone that truly cares about their patients.

My mother went to him in February because her skin was yellow. He said it didn't look yellow to him, so he did nothing. In March she started having serious symptoms, and in April he finally ordered a CT scan. After far too many delays and mistakes on his part, we learned she had a very treatable type of lymphoma. By that time, though, it was too late. She died in late April. Up until a month before her death she had been incredibly active and healthy. When I told Dr. Dougherty I had thought we'd have her another ten years, he laughed at me. My intellectually and physically disabled sister has also been his patient for decades. He didn't even send her a sympathy card. Now his office is in violation of HIPAA as they try to withhold my mom's medical records. I'm having to fax them the HIPAA laws on the US government site — at first they wanted to give the records only to the person who reported her death. Harebrained. That whole place.

When it comes to my health. I desire a Dr., Who's through and have excellent bed side manners. Dr.Allen will explain what's going on in a manner that I understand. His years of expertise and friendly staff is A1. I'm very picky also. I can call with a question his staff will call me back almost immediately.

Please be very careful when seeing Dr. Youngstrom he's unexperienced and non-caring . He had told us my mom had a kidney stone and was scheduled for surgery to have it removed. This doctor did not double check to see if indeed it was a stone. The surgery date 1/23/19 it turn out it was a tumor and he removed it without our consent, when asked what it was his words were "I'm not sure its something I never seen before". What doctor says that! In the recovery room my mom got very sick I spoke with

Dr Youngstown provided excellent care for my husband who needed a prostate resection. The prostate was large and required an extensive resection. My husband did amazing well surprisingly pain free! He recovered completely!

Extremely great doctor, man of faith, committed husband/father. I've been a patient for 25 yrs.. I moved 1500 miles away and still fly back annually for my appt. He managed my endometriosis, delivered my 2 kids, saw me through postpartum depression, helped me manage through a terrible illness that threatened my pregnancy, did my hysterectomy, always supported getting a 2nd opinion, etc. He is more than a doctor, we consider him a friend and would trust and recommend him to all family/friends.
