Specialties

Dr. John M Young has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Two Stars

Dr. Young is helpful, knowledgeable, and articulate. However, in our 5 years of visiting his office, I am now just starting to feel like the best interest of my children is secondary to the influence of the insurance companies and school nurses that he is pressured by. Additionally, I have always had to wait 30+ minutes before seeing him and his up front staff is rude about 70% of the time. The nurses, however, are excellent. I know in terms of knowledge and experience, he's one of the best out there, but we're looking for another pediatrician...one who puts our children's needs before all others.

disappointing

Dr. Young is a great man and a great Dr. he is just too busy and his staff is HORRIBLE! I have moved my child from his office and would like to warn new mommies that it is VERY hard to change doctors after the baby is born. It took me 18 months so be careful and check out the dr before deciding. It was a huge mistake for me to go to him!
