More vacationing than taking care of his patients, appointments are being given to his addiction clinic and people that are from out of town or the area. His patients are suffering with long wait times and when you see him he is so quick and just wanna send you out. He will give you whatever you want just to get you out and would not mind prescribing high doses of narcotic. Then he treats your addiction. Main street Medical clinic slogan should be " creating the problem and offering the solution in one nice package" The pharmacists are in on the cake as well. Sad situation.

An attention seeker and a quack. Beware people and don't fall in his trap.

The person below is delusional. Dr young makes you feel like he knows what he is talking about, he uses his big words and always undermine other doctors opinion to make it seem like he is the best and everybody else is wrong. At first I thought he was but then after repeated visits to the Springdale hospital with my mom. She was sent to the specialist and they confirmed that she wasn't supposed to be on what she was on just like two of the doctors at the hospital told us but we refused to believe because he kept telling us that it is the right treatment. Me and my mom are convinced now that we need to switch.

It's amazing how much Dr Young picks up that is missed by the doctors at Springdale Hospital.

Published on March 30, 2017 SPRINGDALE, NL — A Supreme Court judge has determined a past denial of Dr. Todd Young’s hospital privileges was reasonable, thus will not interfere with the initial decision. Advertisement The Springdale physician resigned and was later suspended for 19 months for having personal relationships — one sexual and one non-sexual — with female patients. A 12-month license restriction was also imposed. Although reinstated after the suspension, his right to be appointed to Central Health’s medical staff, and associated privileges, were denied in a separate process last March. He would not be able to use diagnostic services within Central Health, to admit patients to the Green Bay Health Centre and Valley Vista Seniors Complex, and to participate in on-call services at the health centre’s emergency room. According to court information, Dr. Dennis Rashleigh of Western Health made that decision — the basis of which included the relationships leading to the suspension, and initially denying it, as well as evidence of poor relationships with coworkers and marginal professional attitude — during the initial screening process. Young challenged that decision in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador. He claimed he was denied procedural fairness during the decision-making process, and that the decision was unreasonable. He requested the court quash the decision, and order the respondents grant him medical privileges. In August, Justice William Goodridge ruled the matter should be heard. However, following last week’s hearing in St. John’s, he decided against Young’s application for medical privileges at nursing homes and hospitals operated by Central Health. In his written decision, Goodridge stated a health authority has an obligation to the public to screen applicant physicians who seek medical privileges. The health authority’s bylaws guide the decision, he wrote, and the authority is obligated to make an unbiased and reasonable decision. “Dr. Rashleigh is a specialized decision maker,” the judge stated. “He has knowledge of the professional needs and the working environment of hospitals. He applied the criteria set out in the bylaws and arrived at a decision. I find that the decision is defensible in respect of facts as set out in his reasons and the law…” Central Health was also awarded court costs.

Man you awfully sound like an addiction councilor or one of his employee. I am gonna agree with the person before last unfortunately in this case. I was treated with the "here is a prescription and off you go" attitude. I felt belittled and sad that all the vocal people are on here singing him praises and that is the kind of people that he like to please. Wake up people there isn't any blessings here. Springdale is blessed because central health is working on getting doctors here and not because everyone is getting their POT CARD at the good Dr. Young's clinic.

Dr. Young and his clinic are an incredible blessing in the community. I am truly mystified by how the person in the previous comment could have ever been in a room with him and felt anything but grateful to have a compassionate physician who truly takes the time and cares about the well being of his patients. As far as utilizing medical cannabis, Dr. Young empowers his patients and works with them to achieve their therapeutic goals. Anyone fortunate enough to have him as their family doctor can attest that he does the opposite of pushing people out the door with a prescription and truly takes a holistic approach to patient health. Keep up the amazing work!

Unbelievable humans being truly! So obsessed with the small group of his close patients and people who are loud and usually on social media bragging about how great of a doctor he is while ignoring the others and pushing them out of the door with a prescription ( my personal experience). Claiming to fight addiction while prescribing "medical" marijuana to treat everything?
