This last a-clown didn't even do a review for the doctor--it was his mid-level!! He's awesome!! He just AGAIN won Top Doc for Colorado Springs for 2017!!
Front desk is the most unfriendly group of girls I have ever met. Down right snippy. You never see the main Dr. only his nurse practitioners, who seem ok until you actually need new medicine. She wasn't sure which med to give my wife, settled on a less strong one and said we can try the stronger one if this doesn't work. Just call the office and we will give you the other one. Well that was a lie and she was very nasty when asked about it. Will not go back.

I've been seeing Dr. Young for nearly a decade. He's the most caring and thoughtful doctor I've seen in the last 60 years. If anything, he reminds me of our family doctor when I was a child in a small town. He's friendly, kind, and caring. He researches any symptoms and endeavors to solve any mystery you bring to him. I could not imagine a better family doctor.

Thought the world of Dr Y-he had treated myself & family for 10+ yrs..Then my Daddy died VERY unexpectantly from a heart attack 4days after a complete heart work up...I found him. Already being treated for PTSD&Severe Anxiety then suddenly taking over moms care took a toll. After 10yrs, I was late for 2appts-he fired me-refused to refill Rx's he had me on for YRS-witdrawals were agonizing torture. The copy of my file I received was grossly incomplete-yet to find care-constant pain-feel Forgot

Dr.Young has been my doc for 10+ yrs. I live in Colorado Springs and followed him to Woodland Park. He's been the best Dr. I've had and the office staff is awesome. I would definitely recommend the office.

He is pleasant and seems concerned about his patients. But because of his caseload he sometimes forgets about conditions or prior treatments. A symptom of our medical system I guess. His staff is excellent and very efficient. Sara has been very helpful over the years, going above and beyond.

Doctor young and his staff has made it a pleasure to see them for an ailment. The staff is so courteous and helpful that I have/will continue to recommend his practice to my friends and co workers.

Would not recommend Dr. young to anyone. He has developed an elitist attitude toward his patients and feels his nurse practitioner and physicians assistant can take care of the majority of his patients. We were informed Dr.Young will not return calls under any circumstance. I had three prescriptions given to me without DEA numbers and my pharmacist was required to correct these errors.We were with him for 5 years&he refused to speak to us about any concerned issues.
