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

He is amazing! Very thorough, honest & skilled. He resolved one of my issues on my initial visit. He didn’t make me reschedule another visit to remove a lump on my lip! I highly recommend him!

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.

Courteous and welcoming office staff, did not have to wait for very long at all to get in for a new patient appointment, beautiful office, very friendly and helpful nurse, and Dr. Young himself was both kind, friendly, personable AND knowledgeable and an excellent doctor. I trust his medical expertise and appreciate his warm and caring approach. Great practice all the way around. Highly recommend!

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.

Dr. Young is fabulous! My 9 yr old son is on blood thinners for a heart condition & had a nose bleed one day that wouldn't stop bleeding. The office got him in for an appointment right away & Dr. Young was kind, patient & very gentle with my son. He was able to get his nose to stop bleeding & even went the extra mile & contacted my son's cardiology team to make sure this was an isolated event. Dr. Young was wonderful & I would recommend him to anyone (adult or child) who needs an ENT!

My son was born with an ear tag. Naturally, as parents, we were very worried, so we went to see Dr . Young. He spent a lot of time with us explaining the issue and what needed to be done. He was very warm, patient, and considerate to us from the moment we stepped into his office all the way through surgery, and post-op. I HIGHLY recommend him.

didn't listen to me, minimal exam (except $241 nasal scope), was in for five minutes and the diagnosis he made was clearly not based on anything I said

I have recommended many of my family and hair clients, but received the best advice of my life while taking my daughter to him. I assumed a had declining hearing loss for years. I asked him to see what he thinks is the issue. His advice worked and Im hearing like never before...
