As I child, my parents brought me to him. I was experiencing crushing headaches, vomiting, weakness on one side ect. He concluded that I had an emotional problem and was seeking attention. I was later diagnosed by a more competent neurologist with a tumor in my brain. Years later, I was brought to the ER with similar symptoms. He didn't remember me by this time. Again, he concluded i was faking. By the time another Doctor stepped in and diagnosed hydrocephalus, Younkin had caused permanent damag

Poor communication regarding my child's rare medical condition and the prognosis. Was not receptive to our home observations and misdiagnosed months and months of harmful seizures. Did not provide appropriate emergency information and protocol, even when specifically asked. We found the entire experience to be unprofessional and potentially harmful to our child's outcome. We are much happier in another neurologist's card within the network.
