Dr Young and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Dec. 10, 2019
He was very thorough and explained in an easy to understand manner. He asked questions which helped him better understand what was going on with me. He also had a 4th year medical student with him and from what I could tell, he was a preceptor that was able to teach, explain, and set a positive example.

visit seemed rushers. it felt like I lead the discussion. I asked questions and I still am not sure about next steps. I feel a bit lost.
Oct. 19, 2019
Dr was very thorough. Did not feel rushed at all. Most Drs rush through and barely give you time to ask questions. Excellent experience.

The doctor was very sensitive to my needs and questions and was even willing to give advice about more experimental treatment (stem cell therapy) which is not particularly well researched in the literature and is not being used at Froedtert. All of my questions and concerns were answered.

I had an unusual condition and the doctor thoughtfully diagnosed it. I was impressed by his obvious skill and experience. I've had great experiences with this clinic in general and my recent experiences were very good at every step.

the resident and Dr. young seem to genuinely care about my symptoms. they both were very easy to talk to. both made me feel very comfortable.

Awkward to have student do the initial consult, and then very clearly hear him brief the doctor in another room.
May 24, 2019
All levels of interaction from booking the appt. with the scheduler, reception, nurses, and Dr. Young were comprehensive, professional, and thoughtful.

I have seen Dr. Young in the past, but last visit was in 2008. However, he is very informed about my medical history, especially with regard to sports medicine and injuries/conditions. I totally trust his judgment and recommendations. I hope we can work together to find the source(s) of my condition and discover a treatment program/resolution to allow me to have a better quality of life.

My only issue was the period of time I waited. First I arrived 30 minutes early per instructions provided. I then waited 10 minutes in the waiting room beyond my appointment time. Once in the exam room, I waited an additional 40-50 mins to see the Doctor. Scheduling needs work.....
April 29, 2019
I feel he should have ordered more tests before starting me on therapy. He only checked the symptoms, not the cause.
April 10, 2019
I liked that he did not recommend surgery, but suggested different options for my "frozen" shoulder.
April 9, 2019
Attentive to my concerns, allowed me the opportunity to participate in discussion regarding my concerns and provided guidance that I could understand.

Eye contact, he listened to me, and offered me 3 choices to consider for treatment. He was not pushy.

On time, thorough, informed.

I had to limp down the hallway from exam room to x-ray room and stop a few times to rest. A wheel chair should have been offered.
