Specialties

Dr. Eufrosina I Young has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • 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.

Two Stars

Dr. Young was very polite but she did not address my problem. Instead, she insisted that I had a rare disorder. I received a second opinion that did not confirm her findings. Numerous tests were conducted to confirm it. Yet she refused to change her diagnosis, which was NOT backed by the tests she conducted. Rather than fully explore my problem, she slapped a label on my condition. She also did not do a good job of looking at my records and told me that I did not have back problems despite my pain and results from a previous EMG. In fact, she told me that the previous doctor did not correctly conduct the test. After "having it out", she finally referred me to physical therapy and it turned out that my pelvis was tilted which was pinching a nerve. I like Dr. Young but think that she should listen to her patients better.

Why are you here?

I waited over a month for my appointment, over an hour to be seen, only for the doctor to repeatedly ask me why I was there.(I was referred by my PCP, whom also sent notes explaining why I was there,) Upon trying to explain, I was interrupted multiple times to be asked again and again why I was there. Read your notes, listen to your patients and you may not have to look and sound like an imbecile. This is one of the most inconsiderate and unprepared doctors I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

Unsatisfied No. 2

The review written by "Unsatisfied" was exactly how I felt. She almost made me feel like "what am I doing there?" My symptoms are real to me and I just wanted answers. If she was the wrong person to be seeing, she could have expressed it in a kinder way. Won't go back and won't recommend.

Not open to discussion

While Dr. Young may be a good neurologist her bedside manner and taking the time to spend with you is poor. She was not open to patient feedback, and did not want to further explore what could be wrong with me. In my opinion she does not use a patient centered approach. She didn't take the time to figure out what might be the issue, rather she dismissed all of my symptom report and said it didn't match the MRI. I spent an hour plus waiting to see her so she could spend 10 minutes to tell me I don't have an a problem. If you are a informed consumer and want to be PART of your care, Dr. Young would not be a good fit. If you don't make suggestions, do your own research, and don't offer any feedback you'll be fine.

Five Stars

I was sick for 2 years and had been seen by 9 doctors and no one was able to help me until I was seen by Dr Young. She correctly diagnosed my condition on the first visit. The medication upset me. She very patiently worked out directions until my system became used to the medication. Always returned my calls within an hour.
