I only saw Dr. Young once, like 5 years ago, when I had to find a child psychiatrist for the year or two until I was 18 and could go see the psych my sister was going to. As other reviews have said, he was very condescending and the way that I described the actual appointment was that it felt like he was using a Buzzfeed quiz to diagnose me. I went to see him to get on different antidepressants bc my pediatrician could only prescribe one kind and that one didn’t end up working for me. He said that I had ADHD, and that’s what was causing the depression. So instead of discussing solutions to the depression, he said that I needed to take a $300 test for ADHD before he would do anything. Similarly when I mentioned a recent ptsd event, he brushed it off saying that not enough time had passed therefore he couldn’t diagnose it. My current psychiatrist said that technically he was right with the time frame, but it was very obvious that I wasn’t okay after it had happened. Don’t go see him.

He is incredibly condescending and uncaring. I cannot believe someone like Dr. Young is a physician. He should not be practicing medicine and I feel bad for all the patients who go see him seeking help. He will not listen to you, he will not help you, and he will not show you the least bit of compassion.

Be wary of the positive reviews here. Dr. Young has a good practice, his staff is great. But that's where it ends. Dr. Young is neither accommodating nor understanding. He's downright rude and may make you feel much worse. Condescending is a good word. I'm sure he does good research but he's not the clinician you want to talk to about your problems. If he reads these reviews I hope he takes it in a constructive manner, because it seems like I'm not the only one who feels this way.

The most condescending, arrogant doctor you can find - anywhere - Staff is inappropriate and apparently hired for reasons unrelated to competence. Seems driven to lower self esteem of patients. Find someone else.

The staff and Doctors and nurses that I have had my experiences with have been great and helpful. They are very accommodating. It’s been a blessing for me and those I love to have this place to help me. Thank you!!!

I am a 21 year old female with unsolved health concerns. And that right there was enough for Dr. Young to show me nothing but disrespect. He had no care about what I had to say and the last time I visited him he made me feel so incredibly stupid by making snarky comments about how he's the doctor and I'm not. He was very one-track minded, not even taking into consideration my thoughts and almost scolded me for questioning him. Truthfully, he just seems entitled and rude.

I was an ordinary patient of ordinary means but your team takes care of me as if I was the most important person on earth. Thank you so very much for taking care of me and being so skilled at what you do. Every day of my life will be better because of Kendra especially. Thank you is not nearly enough

Dr Young is very thorough, asks appropriate questions and explains his reasoning of moving forward with specific care. I always feel a part of the decision making.

I have been seeing the staff at RCBM for over a decade now. In fact, I was one of their first 100 patients! There's a reason I've stuck with Dr. Young and his professional, caring staff, and I can confidently say that without them, I would not be the healthy, living individual that I am today. I have switched from seeing Dr. Young over to one of his PAs, Aliya Pasik, and she is taking excellent care of me in maintaining my stability and working to find the right meds for me. Thank you, RCBM.
