Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Unprofessional. Not thoroughly. Rude. Made assumptions about my daughters care that were incorrect. Ultimately, after advocating for my child, he was able to make an appropriate diagnosis. However, had I not insisted on further testing/imaging I do not believe he would have treated her life threatening illness appropriately. Thankfully, I am a nurse and a mom, so I knew something wasn’t right and his original diagnosis was wrong!

The doctor we saw at the Scottish Rite ED was Dr. Michael E. Young. He was uncaring and condescending. We were sent to the ED by the AFLAC Cancer and Blood Center so that the hospital hematologist could run tests. He refused to let us speak to the hematologist, stated she does NOT have a bleeding disorder (which is incorrect) and told her she need to "learn to cope with it". Despite the fact that she was actively bleeding (almost a half a cup of blood), he never even examined her. He sent us home with a $5 bottle of nose spray. He also sent false notes to the referring physician stating that she did not bleed while in the ED.

Dr. Young is an outstanding physician who cares deeply for his patients and understands that parents can be nervous and anxious. Dr. Young listened intently to me and my husband as we explained the problem, he walked us through what to expect during the procedure, and explained our child's diagnosis in terms we understood. He was patient, knowledgeable, and kind. We highly recommend him!

I am the mother whom you told the child 3 rooms down was struggling to breath unlike my son, bc of my persistence with you despite your opinion I received the admission I was seeking & overnight observation, thanks to your fellow staff, I came to the hospital where I have always been heard with my concerns. Trusting a concerned parent helps! While I do not have the “17 years” of being a dr I have 16 years of motherhood! Whooping cough/pertussis is our diagnosis! I am grateful I was persistent!

The condescending and animosity of his attitude and speech was less than appreciated and very unprofessional. A diagnosis of “sometimes these things happen” as it relates to a respiratory problem would not be acceptable to any parent under any circumstance. I might suggest additional training for this person, whether he be a physician 20 years or 20 minutes. It would be highly recommended and might save future litigation. Perhaps this review will catch the attention of this physician. Good luck

We saw Dr. Young at the Scottish Rite ER in Atlanta. My son had sustained a closed head injury and had been diagnosed with a concussion. Dr. Young is clearly knowledgable and was able to address our concerns related to a potential skull fracture.
