Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Young "GI Associates' physicians are 100% board certified and are committed to providing clinical and service excellence to our patients and their families. We are the largest provider of advanced digestive health services in north and central Wisconsin, offering services in locations including Wausau (main office), Antigo, Stevens Point, Rhinelander, Woodruff and Eagle River.

My wife and I started this practice back in 1991.We both trained in Milwaukee at the Medical Center. We were trained in advanced endoscopic procedures. We came to Wausau because we loved the area and we wanted to bring advanced gastroenterology to central and Northern Wisconsin. We both love the outdoors.

Over the course of my career I have performed well over 50,000 procedures. My personal care philosophy is to always try to provide the best experience I can for my patients. We strive to be available to them when they need us. And provide the best possible advice we can for them."
