Specialties

Dr. David S Younger has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Took my money to pay his lawyer

After being sick for almost 4 years and going through 3 different neurologists Dr. Younger was recommended to me by my gynecologist. I saw Dr. Younger for almost a year before he suddenly started asking me if I wanted to get a second opinion. I found that odd because I really trusted him so I googled his name. To my shock and disgust he had been charged with tax evasion (buying things like rare baseball cards and writing them off as business expenses) and his trial was soon approaching. Because he doesn't take insurance I spent close to 15k of my own money on tests and a surgery that he recommended but weren't necessary. He diagnosed me with CIDP after a sural nerve biopsy (4000 right there) even though the biopsy came back negative (I only discovered that when my new neurologist told me). I went through 6 months of completely unnecessary IVig treatments (10k a pop, he ought to be charged with insurance fraud next). He ordered more than one tilt table test, which I learned was not needed after the first one (1600 of my money each time) and did multiple punch biopsies and emg testing, (had to pay out of pocket for each one) even though I already had punch biopsy that showed I had small fiber neuropathy and my past EMGs were normal (yes, he had all my medical records from the previous neurologists). I guess after being sick for over 4 years and always just getting a shrug of the shoulders from 3 other neurologists I was an easy mark for Dr. Younger. Yes, I could sue and win, but the stress would only worsen my condition. To Dr. Younger: you ought to be ashamed of yourself for using me (and I'm sure plenty of other sick people) to pay your legal fees and the fine you had to pay. Shame on you. I hope some other patient of yours has the time, money and the good health to sue you and take you for every single penny. By the way, how was the three months you spent in jail after pleading guilty? Not long enough if you ask me. And, you're welcome that I (unknowingly at the time) was backing your lawyer fees and the fine you had to pay with my own money. You are the worst of the worst parasites in this world. How you sleep at night I'll never know. - J.B.

Thnak you Dr Younger

I am a 60 year old woman that has been suffering from migraine headache for over 30 years and for the past 3 years the frequencies has increased to 3 times a week and they have gotten more severe. I have been referred from doctor to doctor with no result so as a last resource I started to do my own research on line and I started reading DR Younger review and decided to give him a try as he was only 60 miles from me. I made an appointment and made the trip to the city with little hope of him finding anything, BOY WAS I WRONG as with one visit he diagnosed me with celiac disease, low enmity and nerve damage. Immediately starting my diet with not gluten to treat the celiac disease my headaches have subsided and it has been 4 weeks with only 2 minor headaches, can’t wait for him to start treating for the low enmity. Thanks Dr Younger Michele

Simply the best!

I've been seeing him for the past 25 years. I have complications in autoimmune and nerves. It's very important to get the right dx in order to start the treatment and lessen further damages. Dr. Younger is genuinely kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He listens to your complaints and asks questions. I have my fair shares of seeing so many doctors. He's the best!

Amazing Neurologist and Staff!

Dr. Younger and his staff are amazing! I recently switched neurologists and was glad I did. Dr. Younger is extremely knowledgeable and thorough and determined to get to a diagnosis. He doesn't waste time in ordering tests and, in my case, has uncovered a significant issue that was missed by two other neurologists. His staff is also the best staff I have ever encountered at any physician's office! They handle everything with the insurance company and appointments and immediately inform you when test results are available. They also answer the phone directly compared to other physicians' offices today where you first are forced to talk to an outsourced service even when the office is open. With Dr. Younger, I finally feel confident that we will get to the bottom of my neurological disorder and confirm a diagnosis. i wish I had gone to him two years ago when my issue first started - but I'm grateful I found him now!

Rock Star!

Traveled from the Midwest to see Dr. Younger five weeks ago and I'm still amazed at how much was accomplished in just a few days in diagnosing and treating my 22 year old son. We are used to specialists in fancy offices who rush you in and out, perhaps offer up a test or lab work, follow up three months later with a misdiagnosis or that the problem is "all in his head". Traveling to NY was difficult but so refreshing to be taken seriously by a doctor who wastes no time in getting an answer! We are impressed by both Dr. Younger and his A+ staff and hopeful that we are on a new path to recovery.
