Dr. Young's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Young "There are often times when I will hear someone tell me that they did not know that I treated a certain foot problem. This comment could come from a doctor or nurse, a friend, a casual acquaintance or even a patient. As a board certified foot surgeon with over twenty five years experience, I have treated all the common foot complaints as well as many unusual and difficult problems. I have remained up to date with the current treatments and diagnostic methods, as well as keeping the tried and true therapies. Bunions, hammer toes, neuromas, spurs and arthritis are areas that I take care of. Painful scars, nerve entrapments, poor surgical results can often be helped. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Young "I schedule and spend time with patients to hear their concerns, evaluate and discuss their needs.  Explanation of xrays, exams, and education about their particular foot conditions helps both of us decide on a treatment plan that will help.  Consideration of their occupation, activity level, and other personal needs is important in planning and helping them resolve their foot problems satisfactorily.  Everyone is treated with consideration and respect.  "
