Amherst, MA |
I really like Dr. Deyoung. I started off with another OBGYN and had Dr. Deyoung one day as a substitute for mine because I needed a sooner appointment. I find her to be so warm and kind. She's so comforting and makes it feel less weird when someone is looking deep into my lady parts lol

I've been seeing Dr Deyoung for 2 years but won't be going back. Once I waited over an hour having arrived on time for a morning appointment and was not told until asking after an hour whether there was an problem. Most recently she failed to deliver abnormal blood results that were taken over5 weeks earlier and when I called she had every excuse in the book for missing it. She is laxidasical and not at all thorough.

If you're like me and aren't a fan of going to the doctor, this is definitely not the doctor for you. She is cold and comes off as aloof when I was trying to outline the concerns that I had and the reason for my visit. She basically told me nothing was wrong and I left feeling worse than before my visit. Fortunately I met a compassionate doctor a few weeks later who listened, addressed my concerns and go to the root of my issue. I normally do not leave reviews but this doctor was the pits.
