I cannot thank Dr. Paul Young and his staff Especially Shannon)for giving me my life back! I was at the end of my rope the day I seen Dr. Young for the first time. I could not breath or sleep, work, focus or live with the condition of my sinuses Due to trauma from a fall at work. He literally had to rebuild my sinuses. In 2 weeks I was fully recovered and breathing like I have never before! I owe my life to you Dr. Young, you are my angel. Thank You! Karen Musial

My husband, Richard Laub, had the following comments: My experience as a patient of Dr. Paul Young has been entirely satisfactory. He is knowledgeable, caring, pro-active, and takes pains to establish clear communication between patient and doctor. While under his care, I felt that I had his complete attention, regardless of the time involved. In brief, Dr. Young is what I would hope for in a physician.

We are writing this review of Dr. Paul Young following the wonderful experience we had with his treatment of our son. Dr. Young was so personable and caring. He spent much time with us and was very thorough and comprehensive in his examination and treatment of our son and did not make us feel rushed. Our son received excellent care from Dr. Young and his staff and we can not recommend him and his practice more highly. Leah & Jeff

I've taken my daughter and son to see Dr Young a few time over the past few years. I could not recommend him more highly. His warm manner immediately puts one at ease. He really makes you feel like you are his only patient. He spends time with you... really getting to know the patient and the presenting problem. Dr Young's office staff is very pleasant. Finally ... the office is gorgeous!

Dr.young as you can already see is a 5 star rated physician and that's by no means an accident..he's 6 stars for me !! You will not regret it "SIMPLY THE BEST IN HIS PROFESSION..PERIOD..I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM

in Williamsville |
Dr. Young saw my daughter on an emergency basis- he is wonderful! I highly recommend him.
Doctor immediately made me feel uncomfortable upon entering the room because of a request I made of nurse starting my chart. He questioned previous treatments and made me feel as though I had received bad care. I felt some questions about previous care were inappropriate as not related to condition. I did not trust treatment plan and received care eslewhere with great results from a procedure this physician told me I didn't need.
Buffalo, NY |
Dr. Young really helped diagnose my sinus issues! He took one look in my nose and knew exactly what was wrong. His office is beautiful and his staff is very attentive to their patients. I have seen many ENT's and I think Dr. Young is the BEST!

I found Dr. Young through an internet search for the best Ears, Nose and Throat doctors in Western New York. But I’m sure if I googled best ENT doctors in the USA, Dr. Young’s name would appear.

Dr. Young is a very wonderful caring doctor. He spent much time listening to my history, patiently explaining and then presenting a solution to a very uncomfortable inner ear problem that I have. I highly recommend Dr. Young to any age group needing to see an ENT doctor. Also, the office environment is possibly the most beautifully designed patient friendly medical space in Western New York.

My daughter suffered a line drive to the face (so swelling and orbital fractures). We were blessed to have seen Dr. Young in the Millard Suburban ER and then later for follow up at his office. My daughter healed very quickly (Thanks no doubt in large part to many people praying for her) and was cleared to play ball again very soon after her injury. Dr. Young is extremely personable and his staff is very friendly. I would definitely seek out his services again in the future if needed.

Dr. Young had a full roster of patients, but took the time to listen to me and gave me a thorough exam as though I was his only patient.
