He's amazing! He has been able to diagnose things that other doctors weren't able. I knew there something else wrong with me but I was a case that no doctor was able to solve, until Young that is. He listens, very respectful, evaluates wonderful, & makes sure you understand what his reasoning is for your treatment.

Spends majority of the appointment on computer reviewing past notes instead of preparing prior, therefore leading to less interaction time with patient.
