Supply, NC |
Hands down - Dr. Young and the majority of his staff are simply rude. He has a flat approach, shows little empathy. His front office and back office staff are equally just as rude. He did my surgery, I had complications afterward - whether surgery related or not, they were not concerned with my well being. And I just tried to pay a bill - and have to laugh out loud because they can't even get paid without being rude. Please, please go somewhere else!

This is the most arrogant and rude doctor I've ever met!! Do yourself a favor and consider another Dr.
in Supply, NC |
This was a terrible visit. Dr. Young did not even look at the xrays, told my daughter that she has flexible flat foot and said she needs to take ibprofen. She is in so much pain all the time, she can't even make it through 1 visit to the grocery store without riding on the cart, she is 12 . She is in pain every day. He did say he was no good and would recommend another doctor, at least he got that part right. Completely rude and uncaring.

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.
in north myrtle beach sc |
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.
