in Nashville, TN |
I went to this office because it is local and took my insurance. I always seem to have to wait and yet I feel like the Dr is in a rush to be done with me. While I believe Dr Young is good and knowledgeable he plants printed, religious material on the machine right next to the chair. I don't believe proselytization belongs in a place of business (or anywhere) and was a little shocked when I saw it on future visits.

I have just had cataract surgery with Dr. Young, and only 24 hrs after surgery, now have excellent sight in my left eye, with no pain what so ever. He did an excellent job on helping me select the right IOL in advance, and I now read computer monitors and books with small 6 point text without any glasses. Recovery was only 1 day and being able to drive, with no restrictions on the second day is amazing. This surgeon is fair, honest, meticulous on accuracy and very talented. 2-26-16
