Specialties

Dr. Esther L Young has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

My husband had an EEG. The technician prept him, told him to keep his eyes closed, turned the lights out and he slept for 45 minutes. She never spoke to him. We never saw Dr Young, we waited two weeks for results; a young man called with results. We never saw or spoke with Dr Young after. She was referred to us in Beaumont hospital; she told my husband he couldn't drive until she read the results. I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone.

Rude & Arrogant

I went to see Dr.Young with symptoms similar to MS. I had also recently injured my back, which I had informed her of. I have anxiety and was in an extreme panic over the thought of having MS. Plus, I am always nervous with doctors. I was having some speech/talking problems due to this. She thought this was amusing I guess since she said to me "you should see a psychiatrist". She typed in her computer the entire time & barely made eye contact. She said I must have fainted when I fell & I corrected her & told her no I did not faint. On my MRI order sheet her diagnoses indicated I fainted. She didn't listen or that was the code she just wanted to use. The appt. lasted 15 minutes, said I needed MRI & EEG done & we could walk to check out desk for that appt. At the desk I turned around to her to say thank you and she had already walked away to go into next room. She never said nice to meet you, have a nice day, nothing. No one called with my MRI results so after 3 days I called. Her assistant called me back & said my MRI was fine. I asked about EEG & she said the doctor didn't look at that yet I'm sorry, I will call you back. She did in 10 minutes & said EEG was fine & the doctor said I just need to rest !! I went on to another doctor, had MRI of spine, have spine issues & DDD & am having injections into spine to help with pain and leg issues. She's a neurologist & a DO, she should have known better, they treat back problems. She just didn't care and/or she chooses & picks what patients she prefers to see or not. She was arrogant, rude, & in a hurry. That treatment of patients will catch up with her. I don't care what degree she has, you can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion, care and kindness. I'm so happy because now I have a doctor that looks at me, listens to me, respects me, and helps me. I would tell every one to find a better neurologist and definitely not waste your money or time on her.

One Star

After a one hour wait, I was seen by Dr. Young's resident. My blood pressure reading was high, her staff commented that her's would be too after having to wait so long. It was never rechecked. Young simply increased a med that my primary already had me on and scheduled another appointment, which I will not keep. She's got a great thing going if you've got insurance. Would not recommend.

Re-think your visit with this Physician

I had a close friend whom was admitted to the hospital for loss of feeling in the lower half of his body. Dr. Young had given him the news that he had Multiple Sclerosis. He said that she was not compassionate at all in delivering this life-altering diagnosis, and in fact, did with a huge smile on her face. He obviously had many questions about his diagnosis, and she suggested that he "look it up on the internet if he had questions." As a medical professional myself, I feel it is important to keep patients informed about their medical concerns and "googling it" is simply not an acceptable response. There are plenty of other Neurologists that are associated with Beaumont that could provide more compassionate care.
