Dr. Younan is a great surgeon. While I was under his care, he was highly professional, but also compassionate, patient, understanding and funny too. He was very meticulous every step of the way to ensure the surgery went well and the desired outcome is achieved. He also has a great team at Virginia Surgery Associates Fairfax doctor’s office and at Fair Oaks Hospital. He and his team made sure that I was comfortable and happy during this difficult time. I am truly appreciative of the outstanding medical care and kindness that was extended to me. I now feel great because of it. From my own experience, I highly recommend him for surgery related to metastatic Pancreatic Cancer and related diseases.

Dr. Younan is my liver doctor/surgeon since I was diagnosed as Stage 4. My cancer spread from my rectum to my liver and Dr Younan was my doctor who saved my life by removing two cancer spots on my liver and my gallbladder. He is a very caring doctor who has a great sense of humor and also is genuine and realistic on a human level with his patients. He is always checking in on me to see how I am doing and also to make sure my cancer does not reappear. Without Dr. Younan and Virginia Surgical Associates, I would have been miserable and possibly not writing this. I Highly recommend Virginia Surgical Associates and the entire staff for any type of procedure. Kathy Pickard

Dr. Younan was so incredibly considerate & informative as he treated my mother for pancreatic cancer. We prayed for a physician who would treat my mother w/complete diligence & tact; Dr. Younan was just the blessing we sought. In fact, the entire team (Dr. Shaver & PA, Danielle) was extremely pleasant and thorough. I cannot thank you enough for the genuine compassion displayed to us during our time of need. I highly recommend Dr. Younan’s medical services for pancreatic cancer.

Dr. Younan was so incredibly kind and thoughtful from the moment I met him at my appointment. I was in severe pain and needed a consult before having my gallbladder removed. Dr. Younan took the time to listen to me and was able to schedule my surgery right away. I am so grateful to him for everything. Excellent surgeon, bedside manner, and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you!

I had to have surgery in November of 2018. Dr. Younan was very professional, kind and had excellent bed-side manners. I appreciate Dr. Younan ability to retrieve the cyst that I had as he was a blessing to me in my life. He always possessed a very cheerful attitude and I will never forget what he has done. I hope that God continues to bless Dr. Younans hands to continue to do outstanding work!! Lovingly Priscilla

The care that Dr Younan gave me was excellent. His bedside manner was outstanding. He performed laparoscopic surgery to remove an ulcer and benign tumor and repair a hernia from the upper portion of my stomach. He also had to remove about 1/5 of my stomach. Since the operation, I have not experienced any pain. I would highly recommend Dr Younan to anyone. He is an excellent surgeon.

I had been to quite a few doctors before I finally received an in-hospital consult from Dr. Younan. From the start, the first thing I noticed was his willingness to take as much time as I needed to fully understand exactly what the nature of my illness was, and my options for dealing with it. He is a very pleasant man, an excellent doctor and surgeon, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or family.

Dr. Younan originally saw my wife when she was hospitalized for pancreatitis. When they discovered a mass on her pancreas, he quickly arranged for a biopsy and presented us with the results. Fortunately it was not a tumor, but he recommend removal of her gall bladder. He explained the procedure and the aftercare in a manner that was easily understood. Highly recommend for procedures involving the pancreas, liver, and gall bladder.

When I learned I had potentially cancerous cysts on my pancreas as well as gallstones, I was veru lucky to be referred to Dr. George Younan. I was immediately impressed by his intelligent, clear explanation of my condition, and his thorough answers to my questions. He knowledgeably laid out my surgical options, inspiring my confidence, and helping me make the best choices. My surgery and recovery progressed exactly as he had predicted, and within 2 months, I am able to resume my normal routines.

Dr. Younan is outstanding and then some. If you have pancreatic issues - go see him. He completely explains what he is going to do, what the surgery will entail, what the risks are, and how long the recovery process will be. He has surrounded himself with a great team of professionals whose goal is to help you get better.

July 30, 2018 Dr. Younan performed my laparoscopic procedure to remove my gallbladder. This doctor's skills and professionalism goes above and beyond what anyone could want in a doctor. I highly recommend him to anyone needing surgery in the future. My procedure was somewhat of an emergency and Dr. Younan worked me in his busy day without hesitation. Thanks to him and the staff to include Dr. Ahmed who also played a significant role in my care. Again my thanks to Dr. Younan and Dr. Ahmed.
