I was very disappointed with this visit. I had seen Dr. Young once before and really liked him. He spent time with me and explained so I understood. This time I felt like he thought I was wasting his time. Was told to just keep using my Bipap machine and I would get used to my ears popping and the uncomfortable feeling. . I had Covid in November and was in the hospital for a month, on a ventilator for 2 weeks. It’s been a long hard struggle dealing with all the effects of Covid. Just very sad.

Dr. Young is a knowledgeable doctor that will spend more than the few minutes other doctors do. However, I had several issues. He may need a second doctor or someone else in the office. It's hard to get an appointment and getting things like record or tests reviewed can take months. I was assured that sinus surgery would fix or make my issues much better, but unfortunately my problems are worse after and it took many, many months to schedule the surgery. There was no follow up either. Some of the nurse/office staff is great, others not as much and it is difficult to get your calls returned.

I was in pain with a self diagnosed sinus infection. Had already had it treated twice by Urgent Care with antibiotics. They said if it happened again to see an ENT. Saw Dr. Young had good reviews. Went on his website where, they want you to fill out all of your vital information, insurance, etc online and the website says they will call to make an appointment. Filled it all out 9 days ago, still in pain, no call, nada from his office. I called them today and they said, "Oh, we don't use that information, you have to call in to make an appointment". Perhaps they should make it known that their website is busywork and bogus. Not happy.

I brought my mother into the office and it was a great experience. The staff was warm and welcoming. My mother was so nervous and the staff put her at ease. We saw the Nurse practitioner who was personable and very knowledgeable. The office itself is absolutely stunning. I highly recommend Dr Young’s practice. We see him next week. Thank you

I was having trouble breathing at night and was exhausted during the day. This despite the fact that my sinus surgery (years ago) greatly improved my breathing. He gave me options to try before going ahead with a CPAP machine, which have greatly improved my energy level and my sleep. He took the time to explain everything and asked what my questions were.

Saw Dr. Young today for a second opinion. He was wonderful. Listened to my issues, reviewed my history of present symptoms, and resolved my problem within the office visit. I am so grateful! Had been to another ENT three times without resolution of my problem.

Amazing. He is patient and listens respectfully to your complaints and questions. I was referred to Dr. Young for a continual left ear issue that was not getting resolved. Due to his concern and extreme diligence, a rare cancer was found in my ear. His concern and explanations were very encouraging. He has sent me to the best team in town and I am confident that I will be fine. I can't thank him enough for the care he has provided. 2 thumbs up! Thank you Dr. Young.
