After waiting forever, Dr. Young came in and gave me a cursory exam. He didn't bother to read the voluminous paperwork his unfriendly staff had me fill out before my visit. He slapped on a generic diagnosis of fibromyalgia and sent me on my way with a prescription I didn't want - or need. I went to another doctor who did an actual exam with radiology, and it turns out I have an actual physical injury that was causing my pain. Going to request the removal of the diagnosis from my records. Huge waste of my time and money.

I have been going to this place for my neuropathy. Dr young P A Joe talked me into letting Dr young great my back pain. I am supposed to be in pain at the time of the shots he gives so I can know almost right away if it works. It takes me an hour's drive to get there and I told Joe my pain would be gone by the time I got there and so couldn't do it. But Joe said that Dr young can do it without me being in pain so I agreed to have. This procedure required a set of 2 trial shots before the actual libation. Well my first trial was done without me in pain. I go back a month later for 2nd trial and was told he would prefer me in pain this time. So his nurse has me doing stuff to try to cause me pain. I'm meantime Dr young saw about 5 or 6 other patients. For an hour I did this stuff looking foolish for them before it got me. Dr young had no intentions of doing the 2nd trial at all. I got set up and I know why it was done but cannot say so right now. But it is going to be taken care of.

I've been a patient of Dr. Eric Young for about 7 years. When I first starting seeing him I was wheelchair bound and on oxygen. Dr. Young helped me taper off narcotics and take physical therapy to walk again. He's an amazing doctor and truly cares about his patients!

Dr.Young has been handling my pain management for about 3 years or so.I highly recommend him.I have a procedure called an occipital nerve block,while unpleasant,his steady hand is reassuring.That allows me to sit still and allow him to do his job effectively.
