Again, everything was great. Things were not rushed and we had ample time to ask questions etc.

February 22, 2014

The doctor was very friendly and good.

January 29, 2014

The doctor and the nurse assistant that assisted in giving the injection were very patient and good with my son who is not the most cooperative two year old.

Dr Young is incredible at putting kids at ease

We love Dr. Young!

The "student" doctor kept asking my son (9 yrs. old) questions like he was an adult. With almost every question, I had to translate to a level he could understand. Dr. Young came in and knew how to talk on his level and even taught him what "nausea" means and how to use it.

May 28, 2013

We love Dr. Young and I trust his knowledge completely. My kids also love him and the older child often competes for his attention when it's baby's turn to visit.

March 11, 2013

Dr. Young is a trusted partner in my children's care, and my older daughter adores him. We are lucky to be able to get the care we do, and I appreciate it every time we go to the clinic whether it is for well child check ups or sick visits.

December 26, 2012

We love Dr Young! He is great with our kids.

December 24, 2012

Dr Young is a wonderful doctor.

December 18, 2012

Dr. Young is very patient and very experience. He gained our trust completely!

May 08, 2012

I felt like the doctor we saw thought I was silly for bringing my baby in. I didn't appreciate that.

March 16, 2012

The visit with the care provider was very unplesant because he took forever to lood at my daughter ears. She has had plenty of ear infections, and we had never had this kind of situation where her lips started turning blue, and she was gasping for air from crying too much. I said few times "we are done" and he ignored me and kept cleaning my daughter's ears to look at them again. I would try my best to avoid seeing him next time. We came in on a walk in bases and her pediatrician - Dr. Fang wasn't there. We love Dr. Fang, but Dr. Young, we won't recomend. It seemed as he needed new glasses cause it took him 10 min to look at my dauhter's ears. I'm sorry Dr. Young, i am sure you are an excelent physician, but we didn't have a plesant visit.

March 13, 2012

Patients can tell when a doctor has a big ego. It comes out as condescending. Dr. Young does not show sufficient concern for his patients.

February 29, 2012

We love Dr. Young!

February 14, 2012

Again, it was a very quick, efficient, friendly, excellent visit.

February 03, 2012

THe Dr remembered my daughters name just because it was unusual. He made her smile when she was not feeling well.

January 13, 2012

Dr Young was very thorough in his examination of our son. This was important to us since it's our first child and he had not been this sick before. It gave us confort that we received the best care and instruction for care possible.
