About Me

The joy in my professional life comes from that special interaction with each individual patient- that privileged 'one-on-one' relationship based on compassion and trust. Most often this occurs in the office or operating theatre, but not infrequently...

What People Say About Dr. Paul Young, MD
Reply
Did not even examine me. I have severe lower bak pain. Severe stenosis. Never even had me take my coat off. Made me walk across the room once, then gave me a diagnosis of flat back syndrome. Told me to do 1 to 2 months of PT and my pain would magically go away. I told him i already tried PT and it did nothing. He did not want to hear it and set me on my way with no follow up. Went to another surgon who told me there was no way i had flat back. Do NOT waste your money!!!!!!!! Stay away!
