Dr younger is very smart but has no more of a cure for neuro Lyme than anyone else. All his tests might aid research or his next book but do nothing for treatment. Nerve biopsies, spinal taps, tilt table, nerve testing, pet scans, brain specs Etc. The results show something wrong but nothing he can offer. Some of the drugs he is willing to prescribe are not necessary and will not help. Easily one office visit could be in the $1000's. Try dr Mandel. He is smart too and takes insurance. Get the tests done thru him and then see what you can do about any of the results. If you will donate to dr youngers research, he will be very solicitous.
I have seen Dr. Younger numerous times for muscle disease and have always found him courteous and attentive to my concerns. His staff is patient and mindful of the patients illness and associated concerns. I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking relief from a serious neurological disorder.
Dr. Younger took his time in seeing him even at the expense of other patients waiting to see him because he understanding quite rightly that it is important to answer all of a patients questions.
Dr. Younger is an excellent and compassionate physician.
This doctor claimed to be a Ilads doctor ,...which is a specialized group of doctors trained to detect and treat people with lyme. I found him very unprofessional and shocked that he belonging to this elite group of wonderful doctors. I was the first appointment in the morning and arrived before him and waited in his waiting room with a few others. When he walked in a few minutes after my appointment was scheduled he immediately saw one of his former patients waiting in his office he excitedly prompted her to come into his office to greet her closing the door and spoke with her for a few minutes. After he finally called me in about 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment his phone rang and it was his wife in which he spoke to for about a minute telling her he had to go that he had a patient (thank god he realize that). Needless to say, I was taken back by his unprofessional behavior right out of the gate. However, I was there very sick and was in desperate needing someone who understands this horrific disease in the brain so I stayed hoping for the best. I showed him my positive igenix test and told him my back story, how I had tremors at night in my head that migrated. He told me he would have to give me his own tests which didnât bother me at first. He gave me my third physical exam to rule out MS, (even though I had two CT scans and had been to two other neurologist before him in which this had been ruled out) . This was fine though, he had to do what he was trained to do for himself and this I felt was very appropriate . However, I had already had gotten the diagnoses of Lyme from the doctor I was seeing. The MS had been ruled out several times and really wanted him to concentrate more on the symptoms I was stating to him. What he hyper focused on AFTER the physical exam made me run. After he ruled out MS (again) he told me of all the in-house tests he could do for me (all out of pocket) and âgood newsâ he could get me in that day! He wanted me to do the nerve test right away, then get me into another CT scan all which was immediate and I could put on a credit card. I told him I didn't want the nerve test, I know what I had. I told him I didn't need the CT scan I had two on CD in front of him. I told him I came to him hoping to get an IV for my Lyme because it was mostly in my brain, I had everything from fevers to back aces at that time. He was very unsympathetic to what I was feeling at that time. He let me know he does not follow the Ilads protocol even though he was an ilads member. If he was to prescribe an IV he would only give me 30 days but I must pay and have all the tests he had before he would consider treating Knowing that 30 days may not work and I needed a doctor that was willing to help me all the way and not look at me like I was a $$ I paid my $350 out of pocket office visit and ran. I found doctor Younger very unprofessional, money hungry, uncaring and not a real Ilads professional. Anyone with long term Lyme should run!
My 13 year old son was suffering from intense 24/7 nerve pain in his foot. The pain became so bad that he was unable to walk. We went from doctor to doctor for months until we were recommended to Dr. Younger. He agreed to see us immediately. He did testing and sent us to all the right doctors. My son is now almost pain-free and has resumed a normal active life. Had it not been for Dr. Younger, I dont know where we would be today!!! Thank you Dr. Younger for going above and beyond!!
Misdiagnosed. Told us my child should see a psychiatrist when the proper diagnosis was Lyme. Would not have been upset as most doctors misdiagnose Lyme except for the fact that Dr Younger stated he was a Lyme treated Lyme and this was not Lyme. My child got better once we saw another doctor who diagnosed correctly and treated with 2 months of IV Rocephin.
We had a great experience in this doctors office. He is authentic and caring as are his workers.
They helped us with our daughter who had an incurable problem.
I didn't have a good experience with Dr. Younger. He charges obscene amounts of money for tests that he does in his office, which ultimately do not tell you much. Insurance will not cover these costs because they are done in his office. He really didn't have much to say aside from recommending me IVIG, and that seemed to be the only thing he knew about. If you have a neuromuscular condition, lymes disease, or any other serious neurological condition- I would not recommend this doctor.
This doctor is the top of the best in NYC!
We brought our elderly grandmother to see Dr. Younger. So many doctors had written her off as demented and unsalvageable. Well he found that she had a strange case of Lyme disease dating back almost 2 decades that was never treated. He engaged us with another physician, an infectious disease expert who prescribed the antibiotics she needed. He arranged for psychological help and physical therapy and she is now back with us hugging her grandchildren. I feel so bad for others who march through life carrying a grudge on their shoulders because they feel that they have been harmed by a doctor. Shame on you.
My child had Lyme and Dr Younger after $10,000 in testing told us his debilitating ailment was in his head and had to see a psychiatrist. Sat there and said he knew Lyme and my child did not have Lyme. He had Lyme and after being treated for it was brought back to health. Stay away.
A rare breed of caring physicians.
I was extremely fortunate to receive a referral to see Dr. Younger for a neurological condition. He accurately diagnosed me with CIDP and has helped me make a dramatic recovery. He's not only extremely knowledgeable but is deeply committed to making sure his patients receive the best care possible. I live out of state but travel to see Dr. Younger. His office seamlessly coordinates care with my local physicians, insurance company, and home health care service.
This doctor operated on our son performing a muscle biopsy that was done with precision and care.
Dr. Younger provided my son with a second chance at sight and we will be forever grateful for that.
This is an exceptional practicioner in all respects including humility. His office staff are simply wonderful and courteous.
Unbelievably well-organized office. Staff is exceptionally helpful.
Experienced, thoughtful, kind and helpful. Willing to explain in detail both diagnosis and treatment.
A doctor at the HSS referred my daughter to Dr. Younger's office with a problem of intractable pain. She has been diagnose with a regional pain syndrome in her foot. Dr. Younger luckily found that there was a neuropathy based on doing a skin biopsy for nerve fiber analysis sent up to Columbia underlying it and started a series of pain creams and pills directly his attention to the nerves. So far there has been a small difference in the right direction but just enough to make her problem tolerable. She is back at school and hanging in there.
I saw this doctor because as a patient of a local Lenox Hill doctor, Dr. Younger was named as the physician of choice for my problem of neuropathy. I have not been disappointed.
We brought our son to Dr. Younger and found his office and staff to be exemplary in every way.
We have been searching for a neurologist like this for our 15 year old daughter for over a year. A gem! This is the way healthcare should be but you rarely see it anymore: efficient, compassionate, considerate and knowledgeable! Dr. Younger accomplished more for my daughter in a couple of days than had been accomplished in a year by over 10 neurologists consulted on her case! We are grateful, relieved and optimistic about her future now. There is nothing worse than having a sick child that you are watching deteriorate with no help in sight.....Dr. Younger gave us hope back. The office staff is wonderful and helpful as well. He and his staff gave us personable attention and care and made everything so simple.They go out of their way to be accommodating and helpful! We were concerned prior to the appointment about navigating a wheel chair dependent, paralyzed child in NYC but it was surprisingly easy. Refreshing!!
Dr Younger saw our daughter who complained of severe body pain due to small fiber neuropathy and paralysis. She is now back at school and thriving.
Dr. Younger's office is the pinnacle of smooth efficiency. ,
This physician is a highly respected and knowledgable person. He looked at my back pain like no other did and corrected my problem so that it never came back.
Dr. Younger is an expert in neuropathic pain. He treated my son and he is back at school and thriving.
Its great to be in a hands of a sincere and ethically upright physician.
I have ultimate faith in this office and trust them implicitly.
I saw Dr. Younger because of a back problem and he spotted the problem right away and initiated the correct and restorative therapy for which I will be eternally grateful.
I have been a patient of this office for about 5 years. I have always found them to be pleasant, helping, considerate of my needs, and equitable with fees. Their manner has always been appropriate to the gravity of my problem.
This office is very ingratiating and holistic. Dr. Younger assures the professionalism of it at all times.
Dr. Younger understood my disease when no one else could and masterminded my care, integrating the input of many other doctors who could or would not work together. Wow!
The best features of this doctor's office are the attentiveness to detail, humanitarirn aspects, ease of access and reception.
I was sent to Dr. Younger from my home country of the United Kingdom. Dr. Younger is an expert in vasculitis and author of a new book, The Vasculitides that is coming out at the 17th annual ANCA conference in London, published by Nova Science. What a coup for me!
I am a great admirer of Dr. Younger and his staff. They saved my life when no one would believe my complaints were real. I was treated efficiently and respectfully.
I have only the most glowing recall of my appointment in this office.
Think about it, your health is your biggest and best asset. Entrust it to this doctor's office.
It is good to once and a while revel in your doctor's care and concern. Such is my delight in Dr. Younger and his wonderful office.
Just came back from Dr. Younger's office. Even on the holiday's there is a sense of calm and serenity. Hope for us all for good health in the future.
This is an outstanding office with holiday cheer.
I am quite content with Dr. Younger's care these past several years. I have much to thank him for including my health, return to my normal energy, and the great outlook I have on life.
Dr. Younger who recently obtained a Master degree in public health from NYU Global Institute, helped me to lose weight, change my diet, and exercise. I feel much better now than when I first sought his help.
I saw Dr. Younger through the recommendation of an internist at NYU Medical Center. Let me just say that his office is fantastic and very empathetic.
Dr. Younger has marvelous office staff, one is an aspiring physician herself and the other is a public health graduate. I can see that Dr. Younger inspires his staff to greatness as he does himself!
Dr. Younger saved my life when I presented to his office with complaints that were minimized by my internist and other neurologists but proved to be very life-threatening. The problem was diagnosed easily and treatment was successful. Three cheers for this physician!
I came to Dr. Younger several years ago with an undiagnosed problem referred from my internist, Dr. Stuart Orsher. I thought of Dr. Younger recently when I gave someone else his name as the guru in neuropathy. G-d bless him and his office which does so much for people.
Dr. Younger agreed to see my son for a first-time examination and neurological tests the same day our other Lyme disease specialist requested the appointment. We were amazed and grateful, since we were visiting from Texas for a medical consultation in New Haven before our appointment in NYC with Dr. Younger. During the appointment he took the time to explain the tests and their results and answered all our questions. We can't thank him enough for seeing us on such short notice and for providing his invaluable expertise.
I was referred to Dr. Younger from Stuart Orsher who I understand sends many other patients to this doctor because of his relentless ability to diagnose the most difficult neurological problems. Bravo for them!
Dr. Stuart Orsher, an upper-east side internist in New York City sent me to Dr. Younger and I will be forever grateful to him for that referral. The doctor diagnosed my problem, and unlike the first neurologist to see me, Steven Mandel, Dr. Younger chose a few simple well-performed studies and came up with the right diagnosis and treatment.
Stuart Orsher MD, a preeminent internist in NYC sends many of his patients to this doc and I can see why, he is sensible, caring and accurate in his diagnosis.
I was sent to Dr. Younger by Ken Langone himself of New York University Langone Medical Center. What a coup to be under Dr. Youngerâs care.
I visited dozens of physicians in three different states over a number of years, and I never received an accurate diagnosis until I met with Dr. Younger. He is thorough, respectful, and caring, and his diagnostic skills are outstanding. My quality of life has improved dramatically as a result of his medical care. Without reservation, I give Dr. Younger my highest recommendation!
I have been to this doctorâs office for about a dozen times and each time I go there I have the same dependable experience as the last time. There is respectful, prompt, and ingratiating service and attention to every one of my needs. I have seen a cadre of neurologists for my problem and esteem the care of Dr. Younger.
David Younger's specialty is Neurology but his interest and expertise extends to the whole patient which makes him a brilliant diagnostitian. He is thorough, considerate and sympathetic. He has helped me maintain a high quality of life well into my 70 s beyond my capacity to repay him.
There is so much to describe about Dr. Younger and his office. The amazing aura of his office and staff. The genuine sense of care and commitment to finding out the answer to your problem. Encapsulating it in detailed reports and conversation. Finally, treatment that genuinely works.
Dr. Younger has been a great for me. When other doctor's disregarded my issues / were not qualified to diagnosis my issues, he took the time to investigate and understand. He is very proactive in knocking down barriers when other entities are not as responsive. Having Dr. Younger on "my team" gives me confidence on my path to health.
Most certainly would refer Dr. Younger to a family member/friend he is an exceptional Physician & very very knowledgeable
I am a dedicated supporter of this doctor who has been present for us when he was needed and never a flaw.
How can I put into words the feelings I have for Dr. David Youngerâs office and staff. They are always accommodating and super caring in their manner. It epitomizes what doctors should strive to be and are often not so. Whatâs more, he adjusted his fee for me understanding that I did not have the resources to pay for my visit.
I saw Dr. Younger at the suggestion of Dr. Steven Mandel and Dr. Stuart Orsher, two doctors at Lenox Hill Hospital, New York. They were stumped at my condition and felt I should see a super-specialist, hence Dr. Younger. Over several visits he know just what I needed and prescribed my therapy. I am now back to school and enjoying my life.
Great experience. I high recommend.
I am astonished at the state of medicine and how impersonal it now is however Dr. Younger makes the exception to this rule and is in fact very approachable and also competent.
What a wonderful clinician and doctor's office!
Dedicated, Thorough, Caring, Very Helpful
I know this may sound like a solicitation but you canât imagine the comfort it gave me to know that I didnât have to battle the rude Upper East Side or First Avenue traffic to see this wonderful doctor. He is conveniently located at the corner of 34th street and 1st Avenue. I came to his office by subway and bus and didnât blink an eye. I could have driven and parked in a nearby garage but decided against it this time, perhaps on the next visit. There was virtually no wait in his office even though it was very busy and bubbling. The girls, Kyra and Megan were busy contacting patients to see how they were doing. They processed my paperwork after the visit promptly and efficiently and ended with a smile! I will go back again in a couple of month or sooner if I have a relapse in my condition. But for now I feel confident that I am on the right track under this wonderful doctors care.
Dr. Younger is the âgo-to physicianâ for people with autonomic disorders such as orthostatic intolerance. We experience symptoms like lightheadedness and palpitation. I am so pleased that he diagnosed my condition and gave me the right medicine. I was referred by Dr. Richard Horowitz, a Lyme disease specialist and I am forever grateful he sent me to this wonderful doctor.
I was referred by a general doctor at NYU Langone for headaches and found to have a brain hemorrhage. Others had missed it and I am forever grateful to Dr. Younger for spotting it by doing a simple MRI of the head.
As a patient with myasthenia gravis since early adulthood, I have seen many neurologiests. Only Dr. Yournger was able to give me a life I could manage with his knowledgeable, careful, attentive treatment. I am functional with framily, in work and socially because of this splendid physician.
My headaches were treated effectively by Dr. Younger when no one else seemed to be able to do that for me. I am very thankful for his careful guidance and oversight.
My daughter had a brain tumor and we did not know it since none of the other doctors would order an MRI thinking she was faking her symptoms to get out of school. However Dr. Younger took her on and ordered the appropriate studies and it was successfully removed and she is now 100% back with us for the holidays!
This physician is a wonderful clinician and expert diagnostician. I cannot begin to describe our positive feelings about our experience.
Superlative physician and office. Highly recommend to all.
Staff is great, wish I could say the same about Dr. Younger. I needed an MRI and Dr. Younger agreed that I needed this MRI, however he objected to writing me a script for the procedure UNLESS it was done at his choice of facility. I agreed, however my internist wanted it done at another respected New York facility and he simply would not do it. Even though Younger's office easily got the approval for the MRI, my internist had to jump through hoops to get it approved all over again because neurology isn her specialty. Why would a doctor withhold an important test from his patient simply because it wasn't done where he wanted it, especially considering the alternative facility is held in a higher regard. Under no circumstance would I recommend this doctor.
I feel confident under Dr. Younger's care that he will manage my problem and help me through difficult times. Although he doesn't take insurance, his expertise and staff make it well worth it.
I am deeply impressed by the professionalism of Dr. Younger's office including his staff. I am distressed however to read the comments of some past clients who appear to have had negative encounters, many of whom I suspect had deep emotional problems and long-standing grievances with the medical profession.
Dr. Younger is a very extensively published physician at NYU School of Medicine. Those with wacky diseases that have a primarily emotional basis might be better referred to a psychiatrist. Those with bona fide neurological disease should feel comforted and safe in knowing they are in great hands!
Dr. Younger is a caring and insightful neurologist.
I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Younger. I suffered from a head injury caused by a car accident in Fall 2013 and as a result of it, I was suffering from various symptoms of memory loss, headaches and vision problems. Dr. Younger was able to evaluate me and order all necessary tests and scans within the same day. He also helped coordinate and schedule treatment and therapies which have improved my symptoms significantly. He is a very kind and caring person with an abundance of knowledge in his field and I would recommend him to anyone else seeking neurological treatment.
Dr. Younger is god-sent. He diagnosed my medical problem and helped me to recover speedily.
Dr. Younger saved my life. Other doctors disbelieved my illness due to Lyme disease yet Dr. Younger believed in me and treated me back to normal!
