Worst experience ever. Preformed a surgical procedure wrong which will have to be redone by another doctor. Did not preform two other needed surgeries. Does not care or listen to you. Do not go to him unless you want your health to suffer.

I underwent a Clarifix operation in Dr. Youngerman's office in December 2018 to relieve chronic congestion and it has been a life-changing procedure for me. I had been suffering for years, waking up feeling miserable practically every day and feeling congestion pressure throughout the course of the day. I would use nasal sprays and Netipot to relieve symptoms. Since the procedure I haven't used a prescription nasal spray once. I would definitely recommend this procedure.

I saw Dr Youngerman yesterday. The office is very nice. Dr Youngerman is a great doctor. I thought he was very thorough and answered all questions I had. Made me feel very at ease. I don’t however love the staff. I saw one woman run down the hall. Two followed. She was screaming. She quit. Then they all disappeared. People have issues I understand and things happen throughout the day. However the manager should have taken her aside and dealt with it. Staff members shouldn’t be running amuck.

Terrible office experience. Staff was unprofessional, rude, and did not address concerns despite numerous attempts to explain the severity of the situation. Was seen by the doctor 1 hour past appointment time, be mindful that this was for a 1 year old who had to wait in the dangerous exam room for 30 minutes. Dr. Youngerman prescribed too much medication for my toddler, which was caught by the pharmacist.

Waited over an hour at each appointment for my son (1 consult and 1 procedure). My son is 8 weeks old and was asked not to feed two hours prior to his in-office procedure and then we waited over an hour before we saw the doctor (i.e. my son was going nuts for milk as he feeds every two and a half to three hours). The office needs to keep better track of their appointments especially for infants. Overall Dr Youngerman was knowledgeable and nice but not worth the wait. I would look elsewhere

....TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. I brought my 4 year old son to have his throat checked & his nose cauterized (he is prone to bloody noses). I alerted the staff that my son has cystic fibrosis and shouldn't be around anyone sick. The receptionist rudly said "Maybe we should put a chair in the hallway for him" Then we waited 45 mins! The doctor misdiagnosed my son's sore throat and a week later his nose won't stop bleeding! All around bad experience, including the nightmare of trying to park

I had been seeing Dr. Youngerman since 2012. I will be changing ENT's because of the staff. I called on Saturday for an emergency appointment. I was rudely told there were no appts until Monday very quickly. After seeing my PCP, I was diagnosed with bronchitis, a double ear infection and blood in both ears. My PCP made me aware that if I had not seen him, I would have had pneumonia by Monday. The staff here does not care for the patients at all.
