in Murrells Inlet SC |
His staff is awful. You can't get thru to anyone if you call his office nor will they return your calls. If you need some type of test done and you have to get preapproved from your insurance company and they have questions before they will approve it, he will not call the insurance company to get te approval - that's what his staff told me. They were so rude!!!!

Dr. Young is a fabulous physician. My husband is in the process of being diagnosed and had to have bronchoscopy with lymph node biopsy. Dr. Young was very compassionate, explained everything in easy to understand terms and got him on the schedule ASAP. Office staff was extremely helpful and nice. We highly recommend him.

I consider Dr. Desmond Young the BEST choice one could make for Cardio Pulmonary care. Extremely caring, responsive and up to date on all COPD medications and applications (His staff is also excellent) I have been under his care now for 11 years. I would strongly recommend Dr. Young to all ... Further, I would INSIST that close friends and family use no other. Jim Hart Pawleys Island, SC
