Dr. Kenneth A Young has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Best of the Best

Have been his patient for many, many years. He is very knowledgeable, personable, physician. I am a health care professional and I trust him totally with my healthcare. He appears to stay abreast of current medical research and discoveries. If one can not afford a medication, he will work with them to find a medication that is just as effective. Have gotten other family members going to him for healthcare and they all like him and find him a very prudent physician.

Best Doctor in town!

My girls have been seeing Dr. Young since the day they were born, which the oldest is about to turn 15. I choose my health care policies around this Dr. because he is so great and caring with my children. I've never had a Dr. personally pick up a phone and call me when I have questions or concerns after an appointment, he DOES, not his staff! The wait time in the office is never long, which is surprising since he spends such quality time with us each and every time we are there and always makes sure all questions are answered while not making you feel "rushed along". Dr. Young makes you feel like an individual, not just a number that walked in the door.

Our family doctor

Dr. Young has been my family practitioner since moving to Indianapolis 20 years ago. He has also been my daughters doctor since birth and has been a great doctor for all of our pediatric and family practice needs. If he needed to refer us to another doctor for something, he always took the time with us explaining why this was needed and was very thorough.
