Ratings for Dr. Curtis Joung
I really liked this DR. The office is horrible now! If anyone knows where this Dr has gone, or if you have an alternative choice....please let me know!! I have appointment with new PA that starts soon. We will see. So frustrating to have appointments cancelled over and over.
Can anyone whom is a patient of Dr Joung want to discuss what is going on? I've been a patient since 2008 and was called on the 4th telling me they had to reschedule my appointment on the 7th to the 19th!! And they said Dr Joung has left the practice WTF! They also wouldn't tell me where he went, or who I would be seeing at my way later than normal 30 day appointment. Talk about total shock and confusion. It's so difficult to find a compassionate Dr who is willing to help you and not judge your pain. I follow all the rules and have built this relationship of trust and have fought with my insurance to get my referral this last year (I used to have to pay a discount cash rate). Please if anyone has any info and want to share if we get any answers, or just vent. Please contact me. Lets exchange social media or something.
SB💙 is there any way I could CONTACT you??? I'm in shock, I feel like you... And I'm told nothing, all I know is they are going through all his files, Dr.Young was not a Doctor Feel Good... PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO CONTACT YOU, I LOVED HIM, I WAS WITH HIM OVER A GREAT MANY OF YEARS, and I don't trust everyone in the office. They like to tow the party line.... Deep throat♿
I was notified today of Dr. Joung leaving the practice. I was totally shell shocked. Although he had some getting to know you issues with me. I did understand because of some people abusing pills.. He was Always Kind and fair and dedicated to helping and without pressuring you to do surgery. If you are reading this Dr. Joung, I do wish you well. Take some time now and smell the roses. Best of luck... SB. ❤️
I don't know where all the bad comments are coming from. This is the best Dr. I have ever seen. The office is very clean, the staff are very kind. One of the best things is the waiting time. I have never waited for more than 10-15 minutes to be called into see the Dr. He is always very kind and cares about my pain management. he provides suggestions to manage the pain as low as possible. A s far as prescribing pain meds. Yes he is strict with it but has the right to do that. Once he has proof there are legitimate needs through MRI, XRAY, TESTS .. He will prescribe pan meds. There is nothing wrong with that. A s a matter of fact, that is how all pain management Dr.'s should be. I rate this office and Doctor as "excellent". I see him each month and I am very satisfied .
I was referred to this "Dr" by my primary due to multiple back issues and pain management, he is the only pain management in my network, he refused to give me pain medication only wanted to give me Motrin which I cannot take due to gastric bypass surgery, or I could have expensive epidural done or back surgery or go back to my primary for pain medication. Really?! What a joke
After waiting an obnoxious amount of time for finally get a pain management referral, I finally saw Dr. Joung. He is very kind but I think he's completely missing the complexity of what is causing my pain...I guess I need to be my own doctor and suggest that his inappropriate "bandaid" treatment is completely missing the mark in addressing my issues. His staff has the personality of a soap dish. When you come in they keep staring at the computer and finally...."do you need something?" I felt like I was completely putting them out and they left me not knowing what to do after the appointment...wait for paperwork? reschedule? Eat a burger????
I have been seeing Dr. Joung for about 4 years. It took some time for him to get a complete assessment of my needs and overall health. Prior to complete assessment, he did show caution when identifying my medication needs. Now, he knows all if my needs, spends plenty of time getting pain updates, and sees that I don't try to take advantage if his access to a prescription pad. His demeanor has always been wonderful and I consider him top notch! He is very personable and caring. Staff is great, too.
