Patient Comments (4)
New York ny |
I believe Dr. Young is an excellent physician however he is disrespectful to his patients because he always runs late. 15 minutes late is ok, 30 minutes is not acceptable every time.
in New York, NY |
I have been Dr. Young's patient for the past 6 years and cannot say enough how knowledgeable and caring he is. He is very thorough and his office is well equipped. He listens and discusses treatment options with his patients before making a recommendation. The staff is really friendly and welcoming.
in New York, NY |
Dismissive and in a hurry. While he seems knowledgeable, appointment was rushed. Lightning speed attempt to determine corrective lenses was not too successful from first try. Instead of correcting and trying again, he just waved me off - if I'm more comfortable with old glasses, then just go with them, see you next year. Uhm, I was not, and that was part why I was there. Thanks for nothing, Dr. Young. I guess I'm seeing another one next time. Since I still need/want to see normally...

Dr. Young was very thorough, knowledgable, and personable. It was our initial visit, and we will continue to use him in the future.
