I have seen Dr. Youngren for a number of years to monitor an aging prostate. I recently had a recurring UTI which he suspected may be related to a bladder stone. Upon cystoscopy, he located a jackstone and successfully broke it up with a laser and removed it during an outpatient surgical procedure. Minor 1 day discomfort, no pain, and no bleeding after the procedure. He has always been a very professional and thorough specialist with an excellent, caring 'bedside manner.' Frank and honest answers when questioned. He gives patients the time they need which means at times, his schedule may be delayed. I have had an occasion or two where my case needed 'extra time,' and I greatly appreciated being afforded the professional courtesy and attention I received. When I've asked medical/technical questions, Dr. Youngren has always discussed answers in both a medical and vernacular manner to fully satisfy my curiosity. His staff are highly competent, professional, and personable.

I have been going to Dr Youngren for years, He is and always will be the doctor I go to, His staff is exceptional and friendly, and the Doctor is someone who you can actually talk to without a rush, Sometimes I wait a little bit but i realize he talks and spends time with his patients like myself, to answer all questions I have, He doesn't beat around, I never feel rushed and thanks to Dr. Youngren my health is great for my age, he is another piece to puzzle, and even did a vasectomy, which was exceptional and was back on my feet in no time.

Dr. Youngren is an exceptional doctor who I would highly recommend. He doesn't rush thru the appt & takes the time needed to listen to your concerns & answer your questions. His approach is very "matter-of-fact" & his expertise & bedside manner are top notch.

The worst experience of my life. His vasectomy caused severe debilitating pain that has taken over 5 years of my life, amounting to a loss of job, loss of marriage, loss of libido. He will tell you vasectomy won't change anything. The day of your procedure his assistant will provide a consent form with all the complications possible for you to sign 2 minutes before he comes in, all things he never discussed in the consultation. Do not get a vasectomy, especially w/ him. Postvasectomypainsyndrome

Hi I have a unique pelvic pain issue that has lasted quite awhile, partly because many doctors I'd seen had just dismissed me, not wanting to deal with my case . I was fortunate to meet Dr Youngren as he was recommended to me by my Physical Therapist, Zarina Vitebsky. Dr Youngren listened to my whole story, and re-input my pain history thoroughly. He is very patient and kind. The staff is pleasant and it is always easy to get an urgent appointment if needed! I highly recommend him!

Dr Youngren is an exceptional doctor, the best I have ever experienced. I can't say enough about the extensive time he took listening to me, asking pertinent questions and explaining in detail his prognosis and resolution. I had a UTI for 6 months. My previous urologist prescribed several different antibiotics but the problem was not resolved. Dr Youngren suggested a creme that has been nothing short of a miracle. The UTI is gone and has not recurred for almost a year. I highly recommended him

My husband saw Dr. Youngren for prostate cancer. Dr. Youngren performed a biopsy of the prostate. We returned a week later for results. We had a 3:00 appt., but didn't see the doctor till 4:30. Dr. Youngren did not explain the long wait. He proceeded to explain the different choices for my husband. When I asked him to explain something, he showed very poor behavior, and seemed angry and annoyed. During the visit he kept yawning and displayed a poor attitude.

I think if you don’t go see Dr. Youngren, even if just as a second opinion, youre really missing out on a whole different level of healthcare. Ive had problems & chronic pain for so long that had only been getting worse & worse until I saw him. He spent 1.5 hrs listening to & examining me from head-to-toe. I would describe Dr. Youngren as an “old fashion” type of physician with a modern twist. His extensive knowledge of the pelvic floor & medicine was evident. His staff was beyond nice & helpful

I started seeing Dr. youngren 3 years ago, my father saw him for years before that. I suffered from severe enlarged prostate symptoms and after putting treatment off for way too long I went into full fledged retention last year. Dr. youngren took great care of me and we set up a green-light laser surgery. It was the best choice i ever made, and i wished i had done it long before. I am peeing like a kid again. Guys if you have enlarged prostate problems do this!!!
