I saw Dr. Young several times since moving to Pennsylvania from New York. One of the problems required that he perform laser surgery on my left eye and it went very well with no after affects. He takes time to listen to you and offers advice as to the best method of dealing with your concerns..

Rude brusque uncaring. Loooong waits. Obviously burned out. He used to be great but not anymore
