Dr. Young has always asked questions respectfully. She tries to develop a relationship so I feel comfortable divulging what I do not know and my understanding of my back condition. She gave feedback on PT professional appropriate for my condition which was encouraging. Dr. Young always acknowledges the value of alternative medicine to make me comfortable. She listens to alternative tx professional ( Rolfer Lic Massage Therapist) explanations.

Fair for recommending to others as I don't believe the dr's assistant is reliable to pass urgent messages to the dr.

She prescribed pool therapy with [...], for now. [...] is most excellent. I've had many different therapists before; [...] is the best in knowledge, concern, friendliness, and ability to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. Outstanding.

This doctor was so much better than my previous encounter at the same clinic. [...] he referred me to Dr. Young, who effectively provided me with next steps.

my biggest problem with Dr Young is that she seems to refuse to consider the input of my PT and other care providers. she is stuck on the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, even though that was secondary to a very painful and disabling problem [...]. better referrals should have been made,and she should use a broader scope when making a diagnosis.

I wish I had come to see Dr. Young in December. I might have had some relief sooner! The Gabapentin is helping greatly.
