Ratings for Dr. Zachariah M. Deyoung
this is got to be the worst doctor i have ever met. i moved my child up to grayling from Detroit, my son never got sick the whole 3 years being alive and living in Detroit. after moving up to the woods my son crashed ended up in hospital, later found out hes allergic to everything outside. this Dr told cps that i was not giving my child the meds he needed, upturned my house, tried to get me to bring my child back to him for the review for cps. i refused took him to different Dr low and behold his claims were totally wrong, all he wants is money, this all started because we missed a refill apt., very stereotypical, i have tattoos so he looked down on me, thinks everyone is out to get pills, wouldn't even treat a sinus infection in a asthma patent i had to go to er after a week
Very arrogant and judgmental not knowing prior medical history, diagnosis based on his judgement without proper testing or prior knowledge of test by previous physicians were added to my medical records, In my 3 office visits I believe I may have learned more about him then he did me! He disrespected his nurse (who was new) in front of me. Those being a few minor issues without details. I have avoided at all cost to go back but recently (apx. 1 yr. later ) needed medical attention I called the office to see if I could visit someone else beside DR. Deyoung to assist, I was given an attitude and told I would need his permission to transfer within the office, I received several calls telling me NO, basically being Physician less, I had to seek another apox. 30 miles away accepting new patients. Today was my first visit and received more help, cure, compassion and comfort in my first visit then I did with DR. Deyoung in three visits. I personally feel he is young, arrogant,dis respective of not only his staff but other physician diagnosis based on actual testings and patient history. He clearly stated to me he is different from the others and that he is. In this review I would like to inc. I have a reputable job, I am a smoker, I do not have any drug or alcohol issues. I could never recommend this doctor as he has been my worst experience in over 40 years.
I made an appointment with Dr. DeYoung because my doctor relocated too far for me to drive. Today's initial appointment should have been basic. Go over history and past/present meds, concerns etc. Dr. DeYoung first approached me in the exam room with a leaflet about obtaining pain medication fraudulently and a printout of doctors I'd seen in last yr. Obviously I was confused. After humiliating me with that paper and drilling me about the 12 Vicodin and penicillin I received at the ER almost 1 mo prior due to an abscessed tooth, he then realized that I was NOT seeking pain meds. In fact I made this appointment to see him almost two months ago. after going over my history, he then tells me that he does not have the training or education to treat me and prescribe the 4 medications I was prescribed by my previous doctor! He's an MD....that should have been sufficient training to do so. He rubbed me the wrong way. $188 for todays office visit to establish as new patient. Appalled & hurt.
