Dr. Young is a problem solver who educates his patient to the "why" and "how" using your current MRI. He is personable and approachable. My pain had not been solved for over four years by surgeons or physical therapists. Dr. Young was the next step, a successful step.

Over the past 20 years I have consulted with approximately 10 MDs (orthopedic surgeons / pain ) for my numerous conditions. Of those 10 probably 2 were dreadful, 5 were good and 3 stood out, Dr. Young is among the ones who stood out. My goal is to continue delaying surgery while practicing the sports I love. I felt he listened, understood and treated accordingly. Dr. Young’s follow-up is excellent as evidenced by his fast response to e-mails. His preparedness is first rate, before the first visit, I sent him a note detailing my conditions and previous treatments, he had read it and already understood the background of the issue. As for IBJI, it is a good outfit not spectacular but certainly not dreadful either.

Dr. Young was great! He was friendly and easy to talk with. He listened to me intently about my pain issues and explained things very well and answered my questions. When the insurance denied my MRI at first, Dr. Young had a peer to peer meeting with them and afterwards the insurance approved the MRI! His treatments and recommendations helped treat my pain. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Dr. Young has been a lifesaver for me. He is kind and compassionate. He knows what is causing your pain and addresses the problem. I had debilitating nerve pain and was 100 % relieved by the procedures he performed. I would highly recommend him.

I didn't have to wait long to see him. He was very friendly, personable, strong handshake, and looked into my eyes when he spoke to me. He listened to me very carefully, asked pertinent questions, and answered all my questions without hedging even knowing that I might not like some of the answers such as the fact that I should most likely undergo a spinal injection as that is the best option to relieve me of my chronic pain. He outlined a treatment plan and schedule that worked with my needs and lifestyle. Having worked for and with doctors for 51 years before my retirement there was only one that I completely trusted (my pulmonologist), but Dr. Young now makes two.

Dr Young & fellow is very knowledgeable and kind. His staff on the other hand is rude & could care less about your time or care. Wait times are completely ridiculous. If Dr Young was available via email; even for a question regarding medications or a referral it would make it easier to deal with his staff, but you can’t get through to anyone & when you do they are rude to you.

The after care I received was not good. The pain center did not have any available appointments for three weeks even though I went to the ER the day after the Facet Injection with complications.
