Patient Comments (1)
in Cookeville, TN |
First, I had requested a physician recommended by a friend and the clinic scheduled me with Dr. Young. It may not be fair to evaluate him since my only contact was the first appointment which lasted about 5 minutes. The impression I got was that he really could have cared less about us and I left that short consultation not at all sure what he thought was needed or whether if he did the treatment I came for- it would work or not (was told "time will tell"). Not confidence inspiring
