    Went to see Dr. on Tuesday, need to get an MRI, office was to set up and call me. Not heard anything by Thursday I called again, left message was told someone will call me back same day, again nothing. Finally called at 4:30 Friday. I spoke to office manager and told her that her office policies were unacceptable and I will not be treated like this. There is only one person in the office who scheduled MRI's and she was out on a family matter. How does this office run like this?

    My daughter saw him for severe pain in her lower back. Chronic problem since her teen years, now 33 years old, carrying around a toddler. I was with her (mother.) He was cold, arrogant, told hr to lose weight. Really, it's not like she isn't trying! He would not prescribe pain pills. She felt really ridiculed and not believed. Now she says she will never go to a doctor again. This was a very bad experience. I would NOT recommend him!

    I had thrown my back out and had excruciating pain. Dr. Young got me in to see him right away. I received an excellent exam, an x-ray and was sent for an MRI. Dr. Young followed up on my results and I was sent for physical therapy and given an in office injection that really helped.

    Went to Dr Young for chronic back, hip and knee pain. Took an xray and didnt even bother doing an xray on my knees. Told me to lose weight and take advil. Right after my appointment, made another appointment with a highly recommended doctor and was diagnosed with more sever issues. Would never recommend this doctor to anyone. He made me feel like I was a liar and was a total waste of my time (since I drove 45 mins to his office) and money.

    I had left side hip pin put in 4 years ago and broken leg treated by Dr Young. Over the last year I began to have pain in the of my hip and sharp pains. In the past 6 months the right leg is giving me pain and now can barely stand for more than 5 minutes. My left knee is buckling inward, my friends notice there is visibly something wrong, and I'm losing mobility with each passing day. I have been advised that the hip is fine and the issues I am describing are to be expected.
