      Dr. Young is amazing; his staff is terrible. After going through a life changing trauma of breaking both arms from a hit and run, I endured some of rudest, insensitive and unprofessional treatment by his staff for months while I waited for my surgery to heal. Things like not returning my phone calls and if I actually received a call back, rather than apologize for giving me the run-around, his MA, Maybelle, was completely rude. At no point, would I recommend Dr. Young or his practice to anyone.

      I found Dr. Young to be an exceptionally nice person and easy to communicate with. After diagnosing and treating my "trigger finger", I have not had any problems with it. Subsequently, I had a shoulder problem as a result of a fall and Dr. Young had me have X-rays and diagnosed what was causing the pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Young and was recommended to me by Scott Pensive of SPORTS, Inc. who is a Physical Therapist.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
