Dr Young is very a friendly and caring doctor. She is very prompt. I never had to wait more than 5 minutes to see her. Every visit she reviews my lab results with me provides a printout at the end of your visit. She also reviews my blood sugar results every week and makes adjustments as needed. One of her qualities that I like about her is she gives encouragement in dealing with my condition .In my case its diabetes and it has really helped me. The office is very clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have recommended her to friends and family.
The doctors here are very knowledgeable and the office staff is wonderful. Anytime I have called the office, the girls have helped me with whatever I needed, ie. needing refills or lab results. The office was clean, and I was seen within 5 minutes of arriving!!! Which seeing any doctor these days can be an all day event. Although there may be a wait to actually make an appointment, I would definetly recommended this practice. The best doctors around!
I almost left the office before I saw Dr. Young because it was sooo dirty. The rugs were stained, the gargbage cans were overflowing, the receptionist's chair was taped together on the arms and the seat and the whole office smelled as though it had been flooded. It was so musty I didn't want to breath in the air. I did stay and was very happy with Dr. Young and her knowledge and help. However, I am still not sure if I will go back because of the dirty condidtions.
I was diagnosed at the age of 4 yrs old with type 1 diabetes. I am now 30 yrs old and have seen more endocrinologists than I care to name. Dr. Young is by far the best of the best. My A1C had never been below a 9 and now I am a 7! Her knowledge and concern regarding my health is above all the rest. Unlike other physicians I have seen (and I have seen many), she takes the time to listen to what I am telling her and does not brush anything I say to the side. She checks my insulin pump readings every week and adjusts accordingly. I can not thank Dr. Young and her staff for being so wonderful and accommodating to my needs and providing me with excellent care and support. Diabetes can be a very difficult disease to live with and manage but Dr. Young and her staff make it bearable. They literally probably helped save my life. Thank You Dr. Young and staff especially Kristen! You are all a true blessing!
My personal experience with Dr. Young and her staff is disappointing, frustrating and to a great degree unprofessional. Her staff has been consistently rude and unaccomodating when calling, even for things a simple as making an appointment. The doctor was laughingly dismissive about my care, uncaring and her "bedside manner" which quite poor. She treats her patients as computer files, numbers and not as a person... not taking time to listen and/or showing interest on a personal level.
My prior endo ran 2-3 hours late first thing in the morning, whereas Dr. Young never has a wait for more than 10 minutes! She apologized for being 15 mts late once...to me that is ON TIME! She takes notes and prints them out for you at the end if requested. Staff has always responded to my requests promptly.
