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.
