  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

I wouldn't want any other OB/GYN provider-- Dr Young is thorough and always explains things in a way that's easy to understand.

I'm having abdominal cramps and he said it was back pain. He also told me my condition could cause cancer, and only prescribed a hormone to get my period. My grandfather, father, and an uncle died from cancer and another uncle is in remission from prostrate cancer. DON'T worry is not something I want to hear!

Really Good

I was not explained the cost of the procedure that I had and it resulted in a $3000. Bill to me. This is frustrating. I do not think it is the Dr's place to discuss the finances of a procedure but, it should be discussed that the financial office would contact me and then the fi a coal office should do just that. $3000. Is not a small amount of money to me and is a huge stress as to how I will pay it.
