Compassionate, thorough, knowledgeable, thoughtful, down-to-earth... I could use 100 positive adjectives to describe Dr. Younger. Empowers patients to make decisions about course of health. Never rushes appointments. The staff is just as friendly. Building is spotless. One of the gold standards not just for allergists but all doctors in Chattanooga. There are other doctors in his practice, but he is currently taking new patients - which is rare. Do not miss this opportunity if you are on the fence about going to an allergist. I'd heard many good things about him, so I got an allergy test - which I'd been putting off for months. I am glad I did.

Dr. Younger has been my allergy & asthma doctor for over 20 years. He goes above and beyond the call of duty. He researches & studies to keep up to date. He is always willing to take time to talk you and figure out what is going on.

My last appointment was with Dr. Younger on 5- 24-19. After my examination he advised me how well I was doing and I only had to come back as needed. I have been under his care for many years and had allergy shots for five years. I have absolutely no problems now and I have always told him that the allergy shots were magic. He is a wonderful physician and I hold him in the highest esteem. He truly cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Younger is very professional and caring. I can't thank him enough for finding the problem I had a few years ago, that my family Dr. couldn't find. Thank you so much Dr. Younger.

I can't speak for the actual allergy treatment and results just yet since I have only gone for my testing and one shot so far. Having said that, where the doctor comes into play is the first appointment, followed up again later at some point. Having said that, the front desk staff are friendly, as are the appointment-setters, nurse, and girl who gave the shots. Dr Younger himself was very warm, friendly, professional, and thorough. Five stars all the way around.

My sweet boy is 7 months old and has had some on going complications. His pediactirician gave a referral. I went in thinking great I don’t like talking to people they will judge how his skin looks and the basics. I didn’t get this at all! He was extremely nice and thorough when coming up with a plan to get my son normal. I will continue to take him and wil lprobably make my daughter an appointment as well.

My daughter was so sick when we first started at age 5. She could barely get through the day without multiple asthma attacks. Fast forward 6 years her health is fantastic. It has been 2 years since her last asthma attack and her allergies are so well controlled. She is living a full and healthy life all thanks to Dr Younger's action plan for her. I couldn't be more pleased with him as her physician. He is absolutely AMAZING and so is his staff. Thank you for all that you do.

Dr. Younger takes his time to talk to you and makes you feel so comfortable that you can tell him everything going on with you. The only downside is you have to wait for a long time. I know that and still want to see him every time. I’ll download a movie to watch on my tablet while I wait if that’s what it takes.

The staff are friendly and professional. We only waited about 15 minutes before being called back. Dr. Younger is professional, detailed and we never felt rushed. He literally explains the what's, the why's and the how's of your allergies.

This doctor is super in my book. He is always listening, giving advice, and has fixed my 40 years of suffering with allergies. Imagine not being able to breath through your nose for 40 years and rarely able to smell any thing but a skunk. Now I can smell flowers on the breeze and food cooking. My sense of smell and ability to breath has even increased my oxygen levels in my blood steam. Most readings of my o2 levels are 100 to 98. And the staff is super kind, knowledgeable and professional

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of time Dr. Younger and his nurse spent with us. They made us feel as if there were no other patients. When they were in the room all the attention was on the patient and were never interrupted to take care of someone else. The overall experience was wonderful!
