Dr. DeYoung took great care of me and my kids. Listened well, seemed to know what he was talking about, and didn't make me wait forever in the exam room.

Dr. DeYoung's Care Philosophy

I work every day to provide my patients with the most up-to-date, evidence-based care in order to help them live the lives they want to live without health problems standing in the way.

Dr. DeYoung says...

I would like to thank everyone that took the time to write reviews on Healthgrades about their experience as a patient under my care! I appreciate your feedback and will be sure to consider it going forward when looking to improve the services I deliver.

Patients come to me every day asking me to help them with their concerns and health problems, often expecting me to do or say the same things about their health that they've heard from a previous, trusted provider -- but are sometimes surprised to hear that our understanding of their concern, medical tests, and the recommended treatments have changed, maybe in a short period of time! This can breed dissatisfaction -- especially if someone was hoping to leave their appointment with a certain medication or an order for a certain test, only to have me tell them that I suggest another plan. Please understand that if I'm hesitant to prescribe certain medications or order certain tests or if I ask you to come back soon for follow-up, it's because I want to keep you safe and give you the best possible care. If you have any questions about what I'm doing or feel that you're not being heard, be sure to tell me, and I'll take the time to listen to you and will also try to do a better job explaining why I'm doing what I'm doing!
