Patient Comments (13)
Dr Young is a wonderful doctor with such a kind bedside manor. He took the time listening to my concerns and problems. I am very appreciative of how he handled my workup. I was scoped within a reasonable amount of time and given my results as soon as they were back. Not many doctors will call you back personally, but he sure did! I recommend Dr Young to all of my friends, family, and colleagues.

Kindness was the first character I noticed. Dr. Young is a rare gem in the medical profession. It was nice to not feel hurried and I experienced true warmth and exceptional medical treatment all the way down from Dr Young to his receptionist. My hat off to one-of-a-kind doctor. My greatest thanks to you and your staff! God bless you!

Dr. Thomas Young is a great doctor. He and his colleague are very professional and thorough. They care about the patients and spent plenty of time to understand the patient. I had a great experience.
Dr Young listens carefully to you, asks lots of questions to help pinpoint issues. Bonus points for being super nice to his staff and patients.

Dr Young diagnosed a condition that other physicians didn't because they didn't do a biopsy. His diagnosis and treatment improved my quality of life immeasurably.

I'm a new patient and I am very impressed with Dr. Young. He made me feel that my health is very important to him. He treated me with patience, kindness and was very thorough in his examination and the questions he asked, plus he has a fabulous bedside manner. Most doctors would say, "here take this medication and if it doesn't get better come back and see me", but Dr. Young took my symptoms and concerns seriously and scheduled an upper GI endoscopy right away. I will highly recommend him!!!

Belinda-Needed upper scope and colonoscopy. Dr Young and his staff at UT made these procedures painless and fearless. I believe Dr Young truly cares about the comfort and well-being of his patients. He is friendly and explains procedures and medical conditions well. If you are having tummy troubles Dr. Young comes highly recommended.

I was referred to Dr Young by my PCP and could not have been more satisfied with the care I received from him. He is very patient, he listens, and I had no doubts of his expertise. I have never been to a doctor that genuinely cares about each patient the way he does. I felt like a guest in his home more than I felt like a patient in a medical office.
