Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

1. Neurosurgery should be a holistic practice, which more often than not involves non-surgical approaches. 2. Even when surgery is necessary, smaller operations are often more effective than large, invasive ones. 3. A neurosurgeon's most useful diagnostic skill is listening to patients. One of his/her major tasks is educating and counseling patients so they can participate in their own care. 4. Patient should generally obtain second opinions before agreeing to major surgery.Read more

After 10 years of struggling to have my neck and back fixed, was referred to Dr. Young by my primary doctor. The best referral I have received. Dr. Young was up front with me about my condition and went to bat for me with my health insurance! Since surgery on my neck in 2014 and my lower back March 2016, I am no longer in pain. I would and have referred someone else to him.
in Gordonsville , VA |
His evaluation of my back problems were completely different from that of the other doctor in his practice. I don't believe he totally read the reports/notes concerning my case. I will not be seeing him again.
