Palm Springs, CA |
Very thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, thoughtful. I appreciate his insights and his expression of interest.

Dr Young has been the Neurologist for my Father for the past three years. Dad has mid stage Alzheimer's Dementia. Dr. Young is personal, friendly and excellent in working with Dad. He listens to everything I have had to say - and is well attuned to what my Father's needs are with this disease. He was astute enough to suggest Dad did not need any more medication and that it would possibly have more physical detriment than mental benefit. He was totally co He has been an excellent choice for care

Dr Seymour Young did a fantastic job in helping my wife determine Dementia versus possible Cancer problem. He and Nurse Amanda performed exceptional service for my wife getting back to us whenever we had problems or just to provide information. His team went well beyond any doctor experience we have ever experienced - 7 STAR performance

Dr. Young was helpful, warm and informative in treating my 22 year old daughter for MS. He was reassuring to us both and we have never felt alone in this walk.

Dr Young is a cliche. He believes his opinion and is not willing to accept his mistakes. He told me that nothing surgical was available to help me. He blamed environmental conditions. He referred me to his associate that repeated Dr Youngs diagnosis word by word. I felt devastated. A family member gave me a referral to a neurologist in Palm Desrt who referred me to a nuero surgeon in Palm Springs. Weeks later I underwent surgery. My condition is now under control. NO thanks to Dr Young.
