My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Young and appreciate his 'laid-back-little-talk' manner which we do not equate with incompetency. Dr. Young performed exemplary surgery on my husband's toe and my knee. As for me and my husband, we will continue to use the medical services of Dr. Young and is friendly staff, with complete trust.

Dr. Young was very professional and friendly. He took x-rays of my knee so he knew exactly what he was dealing with. He suggested a number of options open to me without jumping right to surgery. I was impressed with both him and his staff and look forward to working with him in the future.

Was very rude. He spent maybe ten minutes with me and determined i needed surgery and scheduled the surgery without knowing the cause of my problem or doing any tests i immediatley set up an appointment with a reputable orthopaedic surgeon. I will not allow a clinic rated c by the bbb to perform surgery on me. . seems like its all about the money anc not the welfare of the patients
in sunset beach |
I was seen today by this doctor. He only spent about 5 minutes with me. Not very personable at all. He was not gentle at all when pressing on my foot. I am going for a 2nd opinion. I will never go there again.
